I write a radical music column for Peace News. Articles are all archived and new pieces appear bi-monthly. You will find links to recordings of various songs I have written about here.

Hospitalitea is a short piece of writing about Palestine from the book 1001 Olive Trees by San Ghanny (2017)

Why Do We Sing? Reflections on Music, Solidarity and Resistance is a longer piece from the San Ghanny book noted above.

Greening Choirs is a short reflective blog as part of the Dear Green Bothy project.

Whilst working with the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre in Edinburgh, I wrote many articles that aren’t digitally available, but here are a couple of articles that may be of interest from that time: an article detailing an eventful anti-NATO demonstration in Strasbourg in 2009 and a short account of my first arrest for nonviolently blockading Faslane Nuclear Naval Base in 2007.
