The Four Winds is delighted to invite the south coast community to an upcoming concert in support of the new sound shell for the Four Winds site.

Our festival artist Director and virtuoso recorder player, Genevieve Lacey and Paul Hoxbro, an acclaimed player of pipe and tabor are giving us a concert as their donation during their Australian tour of their magical program entitled “Upon a Time”.

genevieve Lacey and Paul Hoxbro

Following the age-old tradition of wandering minstrels, Paul and Genevieve lead their audiences back to medieval Europe, weaving melodies and stories into an hour of unbroken performance, meant to impress as well as touch.

Their musical arrangements defy what one would imagine is possible for two pipers. They draw upon a myriad of colours, stretching from four flutes played simultaneously to multiple combinations of flutes and percussion to the clean and naked simplicity of instruments alone. With instrumental fantasies based on Hildegard von Bingen and thirteenth century English hymns to Mary through to French polyphony, Danish folk tunes and complex Italian ballatas of the fourteenth century, the program includes both moments of meditative devotion and ecstatic dance.

So come along! Bring family and friends! Support our new Sound Shell while enjoying a magical evening of world class music.

The Quaama School of Arts is centrally located in the village of Quaama, just 20 minutes north of Bega, 25 minutes from Bermagui, 20 minutes south of Tilba.
