Distant Voices

12 – 2pm
Pay what you can (suggested £5 donation)

Hear Emma Pollock (Ex-Delgados), Jo Mango, Louis Abbott (Admiral Fallow), and Donna Maciocia share some of the songs and stories from the Distant Voices project at this special Daylight Music gig at Union Chapel.

Distant Voices 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.

“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)

Distant Voices is run in partnership between the University of Glasgow, University of Edinburgh, University of West of Scotland, and Vox Liminis.
