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. Call It Home traces a personal yet universal journey of appeal to all ages.
“John McLachlan brought his show Call It My Home to Fanny Bay as part of our Canada 150 Celebrations, and the audience were enchanted by his mix of self-written songs and pictures from his youth, holidaying on Hornby Island in the ’60s.”
– Neville Hope, Fanny Bay Hall Association, Fanny Bay, BC
