Mission Songs Project by Jessie Lloyd – Bathurst
Tue 18 May at 7:30 pm
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 to share the voices of elders as they would around a warm campfire or kitchen table.
From cultural identity to love and loss, these rare songs performed by an extraordinary trio of Indigenous musicians consist of almost forgotten stories that illuminate the history of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait elders, families and communities.
