House of Welcome Music Evening

An evening of music to raise funds for the House of Welcome (HoW). HoW help a large number of refugees and asylum seekers through various services and community development activities. ‘Kate Maclurcan and the Loose Ends’ join House of Welcome chefs and musicians for an evening of folk music from around the world, stories of courage and delicious flavours in a light supper.

Kate Maclurcan and The Loose Ends.   Long time folkie, soulful singer and choir leader, Kate Maclurcan will be singing from her debut album, 'A New Day'.  Joining her will be highly accomplished musicians Wayne Richmond (accordion, piano),  Kazu Milne (violin), Rob Bullen (bass), Sam O'Brien (flute & sax),  Noni Dickson (harp) and Gail Leslie (glockenspiel). They perform some original songs as well as country folk songs by artists like Eric Bogle, John Prine, Chris While & Julie Matthews and Kris Kristofferson. We call it 'Country-tinged acoustic folk'. Winners of The Richard Glover Judges' Award, ABC Radio EXHUMED, 2014.
