Songs of mission days revived in special project

30 December 2016

A rare collection of early Australian Indigenous folk songs is providing a valuable insight into our history.

The Mission Songs project, curated by singer Jessie Lloyd, is bringing together songs from the Aboriginal mission days, making sure they're not lost or forgotten.

She's performing them at the Woodford Folk Festival until Sunday, with an album to be released in March, and a songbook for Australian schools to come soon after that.
