Loosely Woven presents 'Balance'
3rd-19th December 2010

Posted Tuesday, July 20, 2010

This year's 'end-of-year' Loosely Woven concert takes its name from the fabulous Bruce Watson song which reminds us that "for every act of terror, there's a thousand acts of kindness!".

Also included is John McCutcheon's powerful ballad 'Christmas in the trenches' which tells the story of the 1914 Christmas Truce between the British and German lines on the Western Front. The rest of the concert will be the usual eclectic Loosely Woven mix ranging from 'The Holy City' to 'Da Doo Ron Ron', from Rogers & Hart's classic 'Blue Moon' to Buddy Holly's 'Rave On'!

There are 27 of us performing this time with an instrumental line-up that includes: harp, flute, clarinets, saxophones, violins, cello, guitar, piano, concertina, accordion, keyboard and percussion.

See the 'Balance' web site for details of the program.

All Loosely Woven concerts are performed acoustically - no PA!
