Solas Festival – The Vox Sessions

Have you ever looked at what we do in The Vox Sessions in prison and wish you could take part?? Well, you can! We’re doing a very special version of The Vox Sessions  at Solas Festival as part of Distant Voices – come and work with Andrew Howie and Louis Abbott (of Admiral Fallow) over Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st June to write songs…

We’ll start by listening to songs written by people in Scottish prisons and then respond by writing songs inspired by them – creating a conversation through song! You can work in groups or individually, with help on hand from Andrew and Louis throughout. No musical experience at all is required – this really is for anyone. Songs created will become part of the Distant Voices – Conversation Through Song, performed at the festival on the Sunday.

If you’re interested in taking part, email us on to get some material in advance to get you thinking. And have a look at the rest of the Solas Festival programme here.

For now, here’s a song called Breathe Life, written in a prison workshop, that we might write in response to:
