Our “Songwriters Confess” mini-tour of Brisbane City Council libraries in May was a series of highly enjoyable unplugged sets.
We played libraries at Coopers Plains (4 May 2011), Banyo (Wed 11 May), and Toowong (Mon 16 May).
Chatting informally and inviting our audience to be involved in singing, percussion and discussion was a real delight. The fact that there were many children there with their parents made it extra fun.
Here’s some audience feedback: “Recently we attended one of the “Live in the Library” series at Toowong Library, with Mundy-Turner performing. I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed it, both my own family, and the other families around me. Their performance was enriching in so many ways – their musical & vocal skills were apparent, and it was so great for my kids to see accomplished performers live and up-close.”
“I personally loved hearing of the story behind each song, and I was not the only one with tears in my eyes as they told stories through words and music. I especially loved hearing Catherine’s Australian accent shining through in her singing – so good to hear her pride in her heritage.”
“My kids and I talked about the performance over the next few days, and my daughter was still humming one of their tunes a week or so after the performance. Thank you for providing the opportunity for us to experience this for free, and in our local library. We would definitely attend again if there are future Live In the Library performances…and most especially if it is Mundy-Turner – it was a highlight of our week :)”
Many thanks to the Live in the Libraries series’ producer Janelle Colquhoun of Salubrious Productions and to Brisbane City Council Libraries for having us! And thanks to Suzanne- a fabulous, dancing audience member – for the photo.
