Posted Saturday, November 8, 2014

Loosely Woven is a community based group of people who put together and perform two to three brand new shows each year. 'Dance up the Sun' is the third of these for 2014 with 26 instrumentalists and singers. 'Dance up the Sun' is named after the opening song by John Thompson which recalls the way Morris Dancers 'dance up the sun' on the 1st May each year.

The program will be the usual eclectic mix with a few Christmas related songs including:
• Past 3 a clock
• Klinga Mina Klockor
• Candelight Carol
• Joseph Lieber
• White Christmas
• and an amazing arrangement of The First Noel & Mary Mary

as well as a number of well known songs including:
• Moonlight Cocktail
• Do Wah Diddy Diddy (Manfred Mann)
• Caravan of Love
• Joe Geia's iconic 'Yil Lull'
• My Island Home (Neil Murray)
• Yesterday (The Beatles)
• Harvest Moon (Neil Young)
• We are done (Madden Brothers)
• Shower the People (James Taylor)
• Don't put your daughter on the stage, Mrs Worthington (Noel Coward)
• Lord of the Dance (as a stunning instrumental)

as well as some lesser known songs including:
• Fay White's beautiful 'Heartbeat Heard'
• Eric Bogle's 'Peace has broken out'

Instruments this time will include violins, double bass, flutes, harps, glockenspiel, guitars, mandolin, trumpet, didgeridoo, concertina, accordions, 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.

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! :-)
