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.

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 project.

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
