Call It Home – John McLachlan
Sun, 19 February 2017, 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM PST
Take a musically-dramatic journey that re-ignites glowing memories of summer vacations, explores the pains of growing up, and sheds light on the realities of adulthood and the realization that we are all a part of a bigger ebb and flow.
The songs tell of youth, the passage of time, and the vibrancy of life on the island John McLachlan now calls home (Hornby Island). From a story about the first car-ferry service and its captain, to a poignant memory of his dad’s 8mm home movies from the 60s, the show is part nostalgia, part history, part about today.
Images and home movies weave through the show adding a richness and authenticity that animate scenes from the music and stories. They will be recognizable to any one who has spent childhood summer holidays on islands, lakes, or anywhere “away from the city.”
