Loosely Woven presents 'Touch the Sky'
27th Nov - 17th December 2016

By Wayne Richmond
Posted Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Loosely Woven is a community based group of people who put together and perform two to three brand new shows each year. 'Touch the Sky' is the third of these for 2016 with 19 instrumentalists and singers.

The program will be the usual eclectic mix with a few Christmas related songs including:
• I heard the bells on Christmas Day
• See a Baby
• the Pogue's iconic 'Fairytale of New York'
• This is my wish
• Aretha Franklin's version of 'The Christmas Song'
• and a gorgeous arrangementn of 'Your Raise Me Up'

a few 'popular' favourites:
• Overkill (Men at Work)
• Blue Bayou (Linda Rondstadt)
• Fanny Mae (Sha Na Na)

and a bit of fun:
• I just don't look good naked anymore

and lots more!

Instruments this time will include violins, flutes, harp, guitars, melodica, glockenspiel, xyloophone, concertina, handbells, keyboard and percussion. Full details are available on the Touch the Sky web site. Check out these Loosely Woven video clips on YouTube!

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

Owing to limited seating, bookings strongly recommended for the performances at Humph Hall. Bookings, however, are not necessary for the other venues. But don't be late - Loosely Woven concerts always start on time! :-)
