Whistling Past The Graveyard

On an winter’s day among the old stone monuments, these two talented raconteurs will share fascinating reflections about funerals and the end of life.

 In Whistling Past the Graveyard, Leah Cotterell and Narelle McCoy draw from their written memoirs and academic research to look at the best and worst of funerals, from the truly sad to the sublime and uplifting. 

The musical materials are as eclectic as the subject matter, ranging from classical and folk songs, to emblematic pop songs and, of course, together we will sing Amazing Grace. These two eclectic singing stylists will be accompanied by the world-class talent of Jamie Clark (guitar).
