Please note this event will be rescheduled. We are in the process of confirming the new date and will be in touch with all ticket holders when we have an update. Please note this show was rescheduled to Saturday 21 November 8pm​ after originally being advertised as taking place on Tuesday 26 May.Award-winning, US singer/songwriter Diana Jones is known for her gritty, literary, Appalachian influenced songs. Acclaimed for earlier albums inspired by the almost mystical connection to her birth family and the music of rural Tennessee, Diana Jones is known for giving voice to dispossessed people from the past.

Her new album, Song To A Refugee, finds Diana looking into the wider world to shine a light on current issues close to her heart. The story of the album begins in 2016, when Diana was recovering from a serious illness. Although her health was improving, artistically Diana felt at a loss. She had written no new songs due to her illness and she felt overwhelmed by the prevailing political environment. Diana found the harsh realities of what was happening at the US-Mexican border particularly distressing; scenes of mothers separated from their children resonating with her own experience of being adopted.

The resulting Song To A Refugee artfully considers the times we live in, speaks for those often without a voice and encourages a humanitarian response. One of the record’s strengths is Diana’s ability to inhabit the characters about whom she is writing, giving an immediacy to their stories whilst illuminating the more generic themes within.
