CANCELLED: All ticket holders have now been contacted regarding refunds for Mission Songs Project.
Intimate storytelling and moving harmonies interwoven in almost forgotten stories.
Searching for the secular songs that were sung after church, Jessie Lloyd explores the day to day life on the missions, settlements and reserves through music.
Presented as an acoustic trio, Jessie takes audiences on a musical journey across Australia. She engages through intimate storytelling, moving harmonies and historical insights. Using humour and truth, Jessie shares the voices of elders as they would around a warm campfire or kitchen table.
From cultural identity to love and loss, these rare songs are performed by an extraordinary trio of Indigenous musicians and consist of almost forgotten stories that illuminate the history of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait elders, families and communities.
Please stay for some light refreshments in the foyer and meet the musicians after the performance.
Audience warning: suitable for ages 12+.
