Marilla Homes in Concert with Robyn Womersley and Liam Davis
Marilla Homes in Concert with Robyn Womersley and Liam Davis at Diamond Creek Uniting Church May 19 2012

These are excerpts from a long recital - A mixture of opera, musical theatre and folk songs

Review from Roger King OAM, Director of Boite World Music:

"It was a beautiful night at the Boite. Marilla's fine singing and arrangements - She Moved Through the Fair was one highlight amongst many - was supported by the Housemen - Liam Davis, Stephen O'Hern and Silas Palmer, all fine multi-instrumentalists and singers. Marilla's love for her music and her generosity and sense of humour shine through. Laura Zarb was a surprise guest, in great musical form following the very recent launch of her first CD. Marilla surrounds herself with fine, generous musicians. Good luck to her."
