The songs are of their time and the songs are timeless..” – Pádraig Ó Tuama

Jessie Lloyd has travelled Australia in search of hidden songs and lost stories to present this rare and unique Indigenous narrative. These songs, some largely hidden from the outside world until now, offer a unique window about life on the missions, reserves and the fringes of townships where Indigenous people were relocated.

Joined by special guest William Barton, this will be a concert full of heart, history and exquisite harmonies.


Songs include : The Irex, Down In The Kitchen, Outcast Half Caste, Middle Camp, Old Cape Barron, Port Fort Hill, My Boomerang, and Now Is The Hour
