Sing Salamanca

Friday evening we had another picnic on the lawns in front of the Salamanca Arts Center. Followed by a very fun evening with director Andrew Legg leading the Southern Gospel Choir. A gospel choir in Hobart, Tasmania?? Yes — they even have their own website.Andrew did a great job of whipping up the audience to sing along with special guests Maria Lurighi and Brian Ritchie. Here’s a preview:

Suave and soulful, jazzy and joyous, experience a magical evening of music from some of Tasmania’s best-loved performers absolutely free on Salamanca Place.Fresh from their role in Salamanca Arts Centre’s 30th anniversary celebration Dream Masons and hot on the heels of their debut album the Southern Gospel Choir have forged a place in the hearts of the Tasmanian community.Unique in Australia, the ARIA award nominated Southern Gospel Choir’s very contemporary sound draws on the grooves and harmonies of jazz, funk, soul, house and hip-hop yet maintains the heart and soul of traditional gospel with beautiful, powerful melodies, and irrepressible joy.
