FOR KING AND COUNTRY
On Sunday 28th February, Loosely Woven, consisting of 20 instrumentalists and singers, will bring to Avalon a very different sort of concert. On this occasion it will be a themed presentation of songs, music & poetry about Australia’s involvement in ‘The Great War’.
There will be material from the time that inspired courage and bravery in our soldiers and nurses and those waiting at home including a number of sing-a-long medleys and other songs such as:
• The Rose of No-man’s Land
• Women who wait
• Keep the home fires burning
In addition there will be contemporary material such as:
• Mothers, Daughters, Wives (Judy Small)
• All the fine young men (Eric Bogle)
• No Man’s Land (Eric Bogle)
• Gallipoli (Ted Egan)
• Song for Grace (Ted Egan)
• I wonder (Sonia Bennett)
• and a number of songs by our own Ian Hamilton
The concert will finish with a powerful choral setting by Ian Hamilton of Ataturk’s renowned ‘Tribute’.
These songs, music & poetry will make you laugh, cry and wonder.
This special event was conceived by Maureen Morcom and is being presented by Maureen together with instrumentalists & singers from Loosely Woven including Sonia Bennett and Ian Hamilton.
The audience will enjoy free entry and a free delicious supper. And in addition to great music you will be aiding the human rights work done by Amnesty International. Voluntary donations will go to aid that hugely needed work around the world and in Australia.
Avalon Amnesty International group is at present working on several campaigns. At our concert we will give supporters a chance to sign letters and petitions……..
