About the Event

A ONE-MAN MUSICAL PERFORMANCE AND MULTIMEDIA SHOW FEATURING HORNBY ISLAND as seen through the eyes of longtime visitor, resident and songwriter John McLachlan

A musically dramatic 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 everyone with a childhood summer holiday spent on islands, lakes or countryside. Call It Home traces a personal yet universal journey of appeal to all ages.

Folksinger and songwriter John McLachlan presents this 70-minute live performance and multimedia show. The original songs (all about or inspired by Hornby Island) are drawn from his repertoire that spans more than 30 years.
