  • The Good Girl Song Project

    History meets art in the exquisite songs of The Good Girl Song Project. Penny Larkins and Helen Begley present a powerful account of the journeys that thousands of brave young women voluntarily took to Australia in the 1830's. Based on the research of historian, Liz Rushen, with songs by Helen and spoken word devised from eyewitness accounts, Penny shines as the voice of these ancestral female emigrants. The work has been performed at the National Celtic Festival, Maldon folk festival, Illawarra Folk Festival, Nanga Music festival and Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival.
