Let Love Rule
Queensland Music Festival
Archie Roach with the Tinalley String Quartet. Guest performance by Jessie Lloyd and band performing the award-winning Mission Songs Project.
A one-of-a-kind evening of music, tenderness, history and above all, love.
Let Love Rule is a celebration of one of Australia’s musical treasures: the inimitable Archie Roach. Drawing from his latest release entitled “The Concert Collection 2012-2018”, Archie Roach reimagines his repertoire spanning the last 30 years and gets to the heart of what it means to be human.
Accompanied by the lush strings of the Tinalley String Quartet, Let Love Rule breathes new life into Archie Roach’s iconic songs, showcasing the poignancy and soulful lyricism of his work.
Opening the evening is friend and collaborator Jessie Lloyd with her profoundly moving Mission Songs Project, a musical glimpse into life on Christian Missions and state-run settlements for Indigenous Australians.
