In January, February & March 


It may only be February, but there have already been some fantastic songwriting sessions this year in HMP Inverness, HMP Barlinnie and a community session in Inverness as part of the Distant Voices project.

In January 2019 we had a very special performance of songs from the debut album, ‘Not Known at this Address’ as part of Celtic Connections festival. The house band were joined by co-writers including Kris Drever, C Duncan and Rachel Sermanni. 

In March 2019, musicians Emma Pollock (Ex-Delgados), Jo Mango, Louis Abbott (Admiral Fallow), and Donna Maciocia will be sharing some of the songs and stories from the project at an exciting gig at Union Chapel in London! More news on that to follow…

Dialogues of Desistance

On March 11th 2019 Distant Voices will be at the University of Derby performing songs from the project as part of ‘Dialogues of Desistance’- an event presented by the Social Justice Hub in partnership with the Student Criminology Society in the Department of Social Sciences at the University of Derby.
