Marcia Howard House of Song comes to Torquay
15 February @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm| GA $32.74
Join us for a very special evening of the music, stories and songs of Marcia Howard as she presents her show, House of Song – a concert that has been long in the planning.
The show featuring the music from her latest album Everything Reminds Me, a tribute to her pianist/singer mother who provided her family a ‘house of song’.
“My mother, Teresa was a singer and pianist so this album is a piano album. It is a house of song that I grew up in and it was full of music, stories, laughter and harmonies!” she says.
She shares her experiences of life on the road as a woman in 1980’s Australian rock and roll as she recalls the impact and influence of her introduction to Aboriginal Australia and the friendships she has formed with Aboriginal artists over the years and how these collaborations have influenced her relationship to country and to place.
Her music creates a sense of belonging and a connection to her birthplace and identity. The show reveals how it has shaped her life, personally, politically, environmentally through narrative and song.
Come and share her journey, from the early years of growing up in her local musical family through to the 1980’s and time on the road as a member of the iconic Goanna Band, in a theatre-style show encompassing soundscapes and projections, and supported by Mike and Matiss.
She has made wonderful music with the best from around the world, from Mary Black to Bob Dylan, James Taylor, The Chieftains and back home to Archie Roach, and you can experience the magic of this special performance in an intimate setting.
Most recently she co-wrote, performed and produced ‘Save the Rivers (Yaama Ngunna Baaka) in support of the Ruby Hunter Legacy Mothers Milk Bank Charity.
