In Place explores a sense of place in the British Isles; how it informs our cultural identity; shapes our language and dialects; provides both solace and stimulation, and contains histories both universal and personal. It speaks to all corners of the British Isles; Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and England. It also crosses art-form boundaries.

Composer Colin Riley is collaborating with writers for whom place is a recurring theme – Robert Macfarlane, Paul Farley, Selina Nwulu, Nick Papadimitriou, Jackie Morris, Daljit Nagra, Richard Skelton and Autumn Richardson. This specially created writing will form the core of a set of songs for vocalist Melanie Pappenheim and ensemble:

Bass guitar - Ruth Goller
Piano/keyboards - Kate Halsall
Viola - Nic Pendlebury
Percussion - Stephen Hiscock

Colin Riley is commissioned by sound as part of the PRS for Music Foundation’s Beyond Borders programme which is a co-commissioning and touring programme run in partnership with Creative Scotland, Arts Council of Wales, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Arts Council of Ireland / An Chomhairle Ealaíon. In Place is also supported by Arts Council England.
