Music from ‘The Pinnacle’ in rehearsal and interviews with band members in their dressing-room after a performance at The South Bank in London. Frank speaking about what music means to them on their journey through prison and now on the outside with the Irene Taylor Trust.
‘Since 2012 the Irene Taylor Trust have been running their ‘through the gate’ programme, Sounding Out. The two year traineeship aims to provide longer-term rehabilitative opportunities to previous project participants in order to help bridge the gap between life inside and outside prison. Through a combination of live music performances and paid training placements participants are able to demonstrate on a very public platform the positivity, talent and creativity locked inside our prisons, challenging the often negative perceptions of people who have spent time in prison.’ irenetaylortrust.com
