Let’s whistle past the graveyard!
On a lovely autumn afternoon in May among the old stone monuments, two talented raconteurs will share fascinating reflections about funerals and the end of life.
In ‘Whistling Past the Graveyard’ Doctor Leah Cotterell and Mistress Narelle McCoy will draw from their written memoirs and academic research to look at the best and worst of funerals, from the sad to the sublime and the uplifting. The musical materials will be as eclectic as the subject matter, ranging from classical and folk song to emblematic pop songs and of course, together we will sing ‘Amazing Grace’. These wonderfully eclectic singing stylists will be accompanied by the world-class talents of Jamie Clark (guitar) and Luke Moller (Irish fiddle).
We have two performances at the beautiful historic South Brisbane Cemetery in Dutton Park – May 6 and 7 at 3:30pm
