The next generation of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists take the first Australian black protest album and make it their own.
Aboriginal music pioneer Vic Simms recorded The Loner in 1973 while serving time in Bathurst Gaol. This album of country soul, regarded by many as a lost classic, has inspired countless artists. Now, The Painted Ladies project brings the next generation of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists together to revisit and revive Australia’s first black protest songs.
Vic Simms joins emerging singer-song writer Luke Peacock, passionate performers The Medics and a range of guest artists for a special musical collaboration that includes a brand new version of the album and an accompanying documentary, as well as a gritty, powerful live music experience.
