7:30 PM (doors at 7)
Call it Home is a musically dramatic multimedia journey that re-ignites glowing memories of summer vacations, explores the pains of growing up, and sheds light on the realities of adulthood with its realization that we are all part of a bigger ebb and flow.
The songs tell of youth, the passage of time, and the vibrancy of life on Hornby Island which John McLachlan now calls home.
From a poignant memory of his dad’s 8mm home movies to a story about the first car ferry and its captain, this concert is part nostalgia, part history, and part present day.
Images and movie clips weave throughout, adding a richness and authenticity recognizable to every childhood summer holiday spent on islands, lakes or countryside.
