Distant Voices at Union Chapel, London

Union Chapel London / 16 Mar 2019 12:00 pm

Join musicians Emma Pollock (Ex-Delgados), Jo Mango, Louis Abbott (Admiral Fallow), and Donna Maciocia who’ll be sharing some of the songs and stories from the Distant Voices project.

The Distant Voices project brings together some of Scotland’s most acclaimed songwriters with people who have first-hand experience of the criminal justice system. Co-writers on the debut album, ‘Not Known at this Address’, include prisoners, prison staff, researchers and social workers. Through these diverse collaborations the songs offer a unique portrait of criminal justice in Scotland.

In a system that often thinks about things – and people – in black and white terms, Distant Voices attempts to add colour and humanity back into the discussion.

“Listen to these songs not because it’s such a worthwhile project, though it is, but because you’ll love them” – Ricky Ross (BBC Radio Scotland)

“The most striking Scottish album of the year” (The National)

There are no advance tickets for this gig. It’s a Pay-What-You-Can event with a suggested £5 contribution.
All ages welcome!
