Bellingen has attracted many talented creative artists over the years. It’s a small rustic organic town surrounded by beautiful hills and fertile valleys. Many call it the Promised Land and certainly when you drive off the Pacific Highway and through the Bellingen Valley you will understand why. It’s the heart of the mid north coast. Appropriate then that I should have the great fortune to hear a hauntingly beautiful song called “Show me the way to your Heart” by Lucinda Peters in a small café in the Bellingen township.
Accompanied only by a double bass played by Lucinda, it is a timeless and poetic piece of classical music and song through a voice that sings to you from another world of love and beauty… a world so familiar and yet lost momentarily to the mechanistic world we have created. In the silence of her voice can be heard all the qualities that we are in our highest form.
There are many beautiful tracks on her album Show me the way to your Heart. Another of my favourites is “River of Remembrance”. There is probably not a track on this beautiful album that I don’t love… certainly I drift away after hearing these songs – lighter and more understanding of the power of love though the sound of her music and the beauty of her voice.
