Archie RoachOver the moon to announce that huge supporter of the Mission Songs Project Archie Roach, along with Emma Donovan, Deline Briscoe and Jessica Hitchcock will be joining Jessie Lloyd and Karrina Nolan this Friday for Mission Songs.

Curated by Jessie Lloyd, Mission Songs Project – is a collection of Australian Indigenous folk songs performed from 1900-1999 on Christian missions, settlements and native camps where Indigenous people were relocated.

Faithfully exploring the journey of Indigenous Australian music Jessie connects traditional with contemporary, charting continuing cultural practice and oral traditions well into the 21st century. The songs, largely hidden from the outside world, comprise rare and almost-forgotten stories, shedding light onto the history and experiences of Indigenous people, their families and communities.
