This Month at The Dragon Café – Sounds, Songs & Stories

Sing your Song, Tell your Tale – This Monday from 12 – 8.30 pm at The Dragon Café.
This Monday evening we are delighted to host the rescheduled A Story Through Song. Rachel Wegh had been working as a wildlife photographer, but within a couple of years of embarking on her dream job, she was afflicted with a chronic pain condition. Deciding to use her creative abilities to turn her experiences into songs, she has embarked on writing a musical called Pigeon: The Musical. Using the pigeon as a metaphor, we are taken through her world of change, forced to adapt to her situation and the environment. So what’s been stopping her? Is it just the pain or something more?

Filled with songs, story, humour and pathos, it connects with those who have similar experiences and provides an understanding of the obstacles that can face many with invisible physical, mental and emotional pain. Still in it’s early stages of development and accompanied with her pianist and collaborator Austin Caffrey, Rachel will share some songs and her creative process with you. Our musical duo will also get us in the festive mood, ending the night with some Christmas Carols to sing our way into the season.

Earlier in the day there is lots happening including the chance to make a festive winter wreath for your home in the ArtSpace; hear from Eli about his herbal tea entrepreneurship with Cuppa Love; and Grace will be giving us an update on the finances of the charity and let us know how our fundraising is going.
