MISSION SONGS PROJECT
BY JESSIE LLOYD
Thursday 27 May 2021, 7.30pm.
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 Lloyd 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 Islander elders, families and communities.
Audience warning: suitable for ages 12+.
