John McLachlan - Call It Home
Thu, 25 August 2016, 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM PDT
LIVE PERFORMANCE • MULTIMEDIA PRESENTATION
John McLachlan with Marc Atkinson, Scott White and Kim June Johnson
I invite you to an evening of original songs about or inspired by, Hornby Island, that speaks from a personal perspective on what this place has meant to me since first coming here in 1962.
Residents and visitors alike have a strong relationship with Hornby Island. This place holds powerful meaning to many people, and my hope is that these songs touch parts of your lives, trigger memories, and let us all reflect on what it means to be here.
The live performance will be enriched with stories and photographs from the 1960s and 70s that I’ve gleaned from my father’s collection of 35mm slides, as well as old home movies (there’s even a song called “Standard 8” about that very thing).
I will be joined on stage by Marc Atkinson (who played extensively on the album, Call It Home, and whose studio was used to record in), Kim June Johnson, singing harmony vocals, and Scott White, playing bass.
Join me, the band, and your neighbours, friends and family for an event that’s guaranteed 100% Hornby!
Part nostalgia, part history, part about today; the songs tell of youth, the passage of time, and the vibrancy of life on the island we call home.
