Sacred Spaces @CitiesAndMemory

I’m so excited to be part of this project. Even the BBC covered it this morning, interviewing curator Stuart Fowkes on Radio 4. You can check out the whole wonderful playlist here or click on the links via the world map.

Sounds of Dundee

I’ve put up a recent field recording that I made in Dundee last month. On Peter Street just off the Murray Gate there’s a little passage way where you’ll find the Grissell Jaffray memorial, a blue plaque and pair of mosaics. She was the last witch executed in the city. I just hung out for…
