Join award winning singer-songwriter Marcia Howard for a uniquely crafted show celebrating her intriguing musical life. House of Song opens up the treasure trove of memories in a theatre-style performance encompassing stories, photos and songs. Marcia warmly shares her experiences as a member of the iconic award-winning Goanna band and it’s ground-breaking song Solid Rock, written by her brother Shane Howard.
From growing up in her south-west Victorian musical family through to the 1980’s and her years on the road, life, love, identity, loss, and redemption are all relatable parts of Marcia’s journey through song. The audience is encouraged to sing along throughout the show.
"My mother, Teresa Madden was a singer and pianist. I grew up in a house of song and it was full of music, stories, laughter and harmonies! Every time I perform the show I hope to create that house of song with the audience”, she says.
Marcia shares her experiences as one of the youngest women on the road with Goanna in the 1980’s male dominated Australian music industry.
She recalls the influence of her introduction to Aboriginal Australia and the friendships forged over the years that have informed her relationship to country and to place. This knowledge deepened Marcia’s connection with Ireland, the land of her ancestors where she has spent a lot of time recording and performing with Irish artists. She has graced the stage with many international artists over her long career and shares behind the scenes stories, images and songs.
From Mary Black to Bob Dylan, James Taylor, The Chieftains and back home to Archie Roach, her voice has been described as “one of the finest” (The Voice, Season 5) and her songs recorded in Ireland, Nashville, and Australia reflect her Celtic and folk-rock influences.
This is your last chance to see Marcia perform her unique show before she heads off to Ireland to perform her song, Poison Tree, with the legendary Mary Black and the Irish National Symphony Orchestra this March in Dublin.
Marcia has always sung out for justice. She has witnessed change through political song throughout her long career.
As an ambassador for the Ruby Hunter Legacy, Mothers’ Milk Bank Charity, Marcia attended the Yaama Ngunna Baaka Corroboree Festival held in Outback New South Wales last October and co-wrote, “Save the Rivers, Yaama Ngunna Baaka”. All proceeds from the download of the song go to the MMBC and the rivers.
Don’t miss this rare, intimate show at Camelot Lounge.
“I felt like I was in Marcia’s lounge room hearing her story and it was like we were having a conversation. We felt included as an audience and we were encouraged to sing along right from the start, there was no division between artist and audience. Everyone helped out when Dad’s projector failed at one stage! A brilliant show with relatable songs and stories that are known to me. She has lived! Passion and purpose come together in this inspirational show!”
