Loosely Woven goes 'On the road' again!
31st March-15th April 2012

Loosely Woven is an ad-hoc community-based group of instrumentalists and singers who perform two to three cabaret type shows a year - just for the fun of it!

During the years 2007-2009, the group took a concert up north performing with local musicians in places like Talarm, Bowraville, Grafton, Yamba, Dorrigo, Armidale and Dungog.

Last year we headed west to Blackheath, Bathurst, Orange and Dubbo preceded by a couple of performances in Sydney. This year were taking a show 'on the road' to Blackheath, Bathurst, Goulburn and Canberra

Once again, the Sydney performers will be joined for some of the performances by members of two Blue Mountains choirs, The Mudlarks (based in Lawson) and The Heathens (based in Blackheath) including its leader Chris Wheeler of Wheelers & Dealers fame.

There will be 35-61 performers on each occasion this time with an instrumental line-up that includes: harps, flutes, clarinets, saxophones, violins, viola, cello, guitar, mandolin, piano, concertina, accordion, keyboard and percussion.

The program opens with Kev Carmody's thrilling song 'Freedom' (which will knock your socks off, by the way, so don't be late!) and will include a couple of original songs as well as the usual eclectic Loosely Woven mix ranging from Ted Egan's powerful 'A Bunch of Damned Whores' to Kate Fagan's beautiful 'Roll You Sweet Rain' to 'Summertime' to 'Big Spender' to the rock 'n roll classic hit 'At the Hop', the moving gospel song 'Jacob's Ladder' and many more! concerts.

See the 'On the road' web site for details of the program.
