Music from the heart!

A team from Citizens Learning have been working in HMP Barlinnie on a drama, music and writing project called Platform 2:10, part of the wider Inspiring Change initiative.

The prisoners at Barlinnie who have been taking part have written and performed the most amazing set of songs. Seriously, we think you'll be exceedingly impressed at the skills. We are very proud of the work they have produced and can't wait for you to hear them.

There are eight tracks in total which were produced in collaboration with the talented Alan Penman, with additional vocals provided by Lorna Gilfedder from Motherwell College (one of our project partners).

All tracks were written and performed by the prisoners:
