Loosely Woven presents 'Dreams'
3rd Aug - 7th September 2014

By Wayne Richmond
Posted Monday, May 12, 2014

Loosely Woven is a community based group of people who put together and perform two to three brand new shows each year. 'Dreams' is the second of these for 2014 with 26 instrumentalists and singers. 'Dreams' is named after a song by one of Australia's and Humph Hall's most popular singer/songwriters, Pat Drummond.

The program will be the usual eclectic mix with a number of well known songs including:

  • ‘Don’t cry for me Argentina’, from Evita
  • Simon & Garfunkel’s iconic ‘Bridge over trouble water’
  • the hilarious Flanders & Swann classic, ‘Hippopotamus Song'
  • George Harrison’s ‘My Sweet Lord’
  • Crowded House’s song ‘Fall at your feet'
  • the Queen song ‘Somebody to Love’
  • the Electric Light Orchestra’s hit, ‘Rockaria’
  • ’Turn the world around', Harry Belafonte’s song of rebirth
  • ‘Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears’, the song made famous by the Irish Tenors celebrating the ’New World’
  • ’Sit down you’re rocking the boat’ (from ‘Guys & Dolls’)
As well as a number of lesser known songs including:
  • ‘Wollemi Pine’, a beautiful Tom Bridges a cappella arrangement of the famous Denis Kevans/Sonia Bennett song
  • Nana Mouskouri’s ‘Mamma’
  • Sarah McLachlan’s beautiful song ‘Angel’
  • Pat Drummond’s ‘Dreams’
  • And many more.
Instruments this time will include violins, viola, flutes, harps, xylophone, glockenspiel, guitars, mandolin, concertinas, keyboard and percussion.Full details are available on the Loosely Woven web site. Check out the Loosely Woven video clips on YouTube!

As usual, Loosely Woven will be performing acoustically - no PA system.
