Mission Songs Project

Concert or Performance

12 May 2021 to 15 May 2021 Daily Event

Searching for the secular songs that were sung after church, Jessie Lloyd uncovers the day to day life on the missions, settlements and reserves. Through music, intimate storytelling, moving harmonies and with historical insight, Jessie Lloyd takes audiences on a musical journey across Australia – 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 singers, unearth almost forgotten stories that illuminate the history of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Elders, families and communities.

Four prominent voices from our Aboriginal community – Aunty Valda Murray, Racheal Oak Butler, Aaron Perkins-Kemp- Berger and Bobby Whybrow – worked with Jessie Lloyd penning two original songs to contribute to the Mission Songs Project, reflecting life in our region. Celebrate with us as our four local songwriters, together with local community members, take to the stage with Jessie Lloyd to share their stories through song.

Duration 80 minutes, including interval Suitability 12 years and over.

Presented by HotHouse Theatre.
