Loosely Woven presents 'Universal Child'
30th November - 23rd December 2012

By Wayne Richmond
Posted Thursday, November 22, 2012

Loosely Woven is a community based group of people who put together and perform three brand new shows each year. 'Universal Child' is the third of these for 2012.

The concert gets its name from the famous Annie Lennox song which so incisively reflects her passion for human rights. The concert also includes a number of unusual Christmas-related songs including local songwriter Peter Kearney's powerful 'Refugee Carol' and Jackson Browne's 'The Rebel Jesus' and many more - the usual eclectic Loosely Woven mix!

There are 23 performers this time with an instrumental line-up that includes: harp, flutes, clarinets, saxophones, violins, guitars, mandolin, piano, accordion, concertinas, glockenspiel, harmonium, bowed psaltery, keyboard and percussion.

See the Loosely Woven 'Universal Child' web site for more information and a complete list of items (including downloadable copies of the music) and the audience program. Check out the Loosely Woven video clips on YouTube!

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

COLOUR SCHEME - The colour scheme this time is any plain, bright colour (see the image in the poster above for ideas). So feel free to search through your wardrobe and dress accordingly!
