A free, light-hearted, folky, Christmassy acoustic concert/cabaret . . .
Loosely Woven is a community based group of people who put together and perform two to three new shows each year. 'Bright Eyes' is the third of these for 2015 with 17 instrumentalists and singers.
The concert will include delightfully interesting arrangements of some traditional Christmas songs including:
- I'm gonna sing
- The Virgin Mary
- Riu Riu Chiu
- Silent Night
The rest of the program will include the usual wide variety of items including some classics:
- You're my world (Cilla Black)
- He's a rebel
- You raise me up
- I'll be your baby tonight (Bob Dylan)
- Better be home soon (Crowded House)
- Women of our time (Judy Small)
- Refuge to a Refugee (Bernard Carney)
"I LOVE being moved by the beautiful and varied song choices, stunning arrangements, the message of the songs and the emotional connection to the songs."
" . . . this fascinating and fun-filled group provided an excellent afternoon of entertainment!"
"Once again a great performance. I have seen performances by choirs this year and they are not a patch on your concert . . . the quality of the performance was exceptional this year. I have never met anyone who did not leave one of your concerts without their spirits greatly uplifted."
"Loosely Woven is unique. An amoebic mass of performing musicians, singers and dancers who range from absolute beginners to the classically trained and even boasting a music professor. The group, ranging in age from 20 to 70, ebbs and flows with a constant influx of newcomers, frequent recidivists and a small core of foundation members."
"Loosely Woven groupies never know what the next concert will bring, and that's the way we like it! Keep your eyes peeled for the next one and make a big effort to attend – you won't regret it!"
