Local composer and musician Sally Pullinger, renowned locally for her arrangements and conducting of the Avalonian Free State Choir and many other creative and musical projects, has created a piece of unique and inspiring new musical theatre, an Eco-Rock Opera – ‘Voices of the Earth’. And will be producing a showcase of some of the film, dances and songs from this multi-media work in July this year.

Sally wrote the first version of this musical theatre piece in 1988, while she was co-running the then locally famous Ploughshares Vegan Organic Café in Glastonbury, along with her family and friends. They were well ahead of their time, creating wonderful foods that delighted so many customers. Now, over thirty years later, many of the recipes and ideas this group were working with have become mainstream.  And indeed, the theme of ‘Voices of the Earth’ is no different. Sally and her whole family have long been part of the consciousness movement promoting the mental, emotional, and physical health and well-being of the earth, human beings, animals, plants, and the whole environment. 

Sally now a grandmother has observed, along with all of us, how many young people are waking up to the state of the environment, and how they are passionate in their mission to awaken everyone to the urgent message that we all need to think deeply and carefully about how we can live more sustainably on our precious earth.

It is indeed a comment on our times that all the songs written over thirty years ago are just as relevant today. Only now there is even more to be concerned about. And so, Sally has been busy writing more songs to reflect our current ecological situation.

The Eco-Rock Opera, Voices of the Earth, is poignant, funny and tragic, but also optimistic and hopeful. It deals with the issues that arise as we struggle to overcome the growing and overwhelming facts of the pollution in the earth, seas, rivers, air and space around us, and the consequent threat to all life here on earth.

Sally is gathering together her company of musicians, actors, singers, dancers, filmmakers, and all the team needed to eventually create the full theatrical production, which is to be staged in 2021.  But this summer they will bring you a rich showcase of many of the songs, dances and film, and continue to fundraise for the big production next year.

This showcase will be performed on Wednesday 29th July 2020, and will form part of the famous Glastonbury Goddess Conference, which this year will celebrate the Great Earth Mother Goddess.
