About this event

Searching for the secular songs that were sung after church, Jessie Lloyd explores the day to day life on the missions and settlements through music.
Jessie engages through intimate storytelling, moving harmonies and historical insights, using humour and truth to share the voices of elders as they would around a campfire or kitchen table.

From cultural identity to love and loss, these rare songs are performed by an extraordinary trio of Indigenous musicians and illuminate the history of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait elders, families and communities.

"Mission Songs Project presents contemporary folk songs that continue the ancient songlines of this country...... there are some well known songs and hidden gems that have been uncovered" Archie Roach.
