Two great musicians for you  Josie Duncan and Joseph Peach


Glasgow launch of Women with

Fierce Words anthology  

Our next event will be at 7pm on Monday, September 11th at the Griffin Bar in Bath Street, Glasgow.

We are protesting against DSEI (Defence & Security Equipment International), the world's largest arms fair, which is taking place in London from 12th to 15th September.

We have two fantastic music acts for you - Josie Duncan, who with her partner Pablo Lafuente, was a winner in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, AND

Joseph Peach, who with his partner Charlie Grey was also a finalist at the awards and who played such a great set at our last event in the Scotia Bar.

On the first day of the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe, fifteen women gathered in front of the Scottish Poetry Library in Crichton's Lane in the heart of the Cannongate of Edinburgh. They had answered a call to come and perform their poetry on the street, share their words. No censorship, no self-censorship, a group of women reflecting on their lives, on their terms.Women with Fierce Words was born. Editor Lesley Traynor.

on the night

On the anniversary of the tragedy of September 11th and with the DSEI arms fair looming, our second Dove Tales event celebrated life and creative power in the most vibrant way. Lesley Traynor brought her Women with Fierce Words who made it a party atmosphere all the way.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Josie Duncan couldn't play, so R.K.Wallace stepped in at short notice and played a great set. Joe Peach very generously stayed and did the sound.

We live in a world where so much destruction is happening, it's hard to take in. My heart is just breaking every day, so I decided a couple of years ago to focus on what I believe in and what I want and what I find beautiful.
