Fay White is well known on these shores as a terrific songwriter, performer, and encourager of community music. We worked together many years back on the musical component of the Lacuna Project, a collection of resources encouraging the those particularly in the Uniting Church into a contemplative space in which moments of grace might be recognised.
More about Fay
So, when word of a new collection of songs to be launched this weekend came my way, I found I wanted to share the news with you.
Melbourne launch of this new album, These people, this place: everyday grace collects the best of Fay's commissioned works of this past decade, together with a handful of songs never recorded before. The launch will be held at Northcote Uniting Church, 251 High St, Northcote, at 7.30pm.
'It has been beautifully recorded by Mark Woods,' writes Fay, 'and reflects his capacity to create sparkling audio texture. A fabulous line-up of musicians will bring their magic to the accompaniments and also combine to play songs from their own repertoires in the second half. It will be a delicious evening of music.'
'Hoping to see you for some catch-up and re-union and a good sing. And a bit of heart, hope and humour in the midst of dastardly daily news.'
Please pass on these tidings to anyone you know may be interested.
Tickets $15. Booking strongly recommended - 5461 5471
