Mission Songs Project Jessie Lloyd Geelong Arts Centre

Event Details

Searching for the secular songs that were sung after church, Jessie Lloyd’s profoundly moving and important Mission Songs Project looks to explore the day-to-day life of the mission days, from cultural identity to love and loss. These unique songs, performed by an extraordinary trio of Indigenous musicians, consist of almost forgotten stories that illuminate the history of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders, families and communities.

Presented as an acoustic trio, Jessie Lloyd takes audiences on a musical journey across Australia. She engages them 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.

The concert is on Saturday, 29 May.
