House Music at Your House webinar
'House Music at Your House' is a new musical experiment aiming to bring the music of the 19th century into the 21st century.
As part of this experiment Nicole Forsyth and Dr David Greco discuss with Dr Matthew Stephens, curator of the Songs of Home exhibition, pieces of music they discovered at historic Rouse Hill Estate and what it means for 21st-century performers to explore and interpret domestic music played 170 years ago.
We delved into the hundreds of popular songs that survive in the collection at Rouse Hill Estate in north-west Sydney to bring you the top 20 hits of the 1840s and 50s – songs played across NSW, Australia and overseas
