Voices Of Sacred Earth ( VOSE) Festival
Kawai Purapura, 14 Mills Lane, Albany (North Auckland)
Afternoon performance and workshop
12.00 noon – Session 1: Sturrock & Ward Trio – One Love and Many Names
This dynamic Australian trio perform a selection of meaningful and inspiring original repertoire, featuring award-winning songsmith Brian Ward, the masterful guitar work of Marcus Sturrock (including his trademark guitar body percussion) and the lovely vocal tone, agility and harmonies of Jenny Ward.
3.30 pm – Session 2: Sturrock & Ward – Guitar & Songwriting
Marcus Sturrock reveals his unique techniques, tunings and styles on the steel string acoustic guitar. He explores the tension and resolution of the composition, ways to sustain interest and passion for playing through spontaneity and innovative driving percussion played on the guitar’s body. Brian Ward (award-winning songwriter and former President of Australian Songwriters Assn) shares insights on writing songs with method and meaning, and the interplay of lyrics, melody, structure, arrangement, and performance.
The Voices of Sacred Earth Festival is an Eco-Festival, gathering of hundreds of people for a weekend of seminars, transformational workshops and performances focusing on indigenous cultures, Earth wisdom, sacred ceremony, well-being and social change.
