304 Distant Voices: Emma Pollock, Jo Mango, Louis Abbott and Donna Maciocia
16 March, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
304 Emma Pollock, Jo Mango, Louis Abbott and Donna Maciocia
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
