SMHAFF




It's that time of the year again folks - the annual Scottish Mental Health Art and Film Festival
On right across Scotland from 1st to 19th October with a theme of power.

For the  musical contribution I am taking you back three or four years to the CD Squaring The Circle a  collection of songs and poems bringing together the real life experiences of people living with mental health problems who have worked with Lanarkshire singer song writers and musicians to tell their stories.

Organised by the Lanarkshire Recovery Network  a small group held regular meetings in the Alona Hotel in Strathclyde Park leading to them being christened The Alonagains.
The musical support is provided by Pat O'Neill , Colin Fullerton and Gary Carmichael.

Copies were given out free across Lanarkshire but I have spotted it in charity shops as far afield as St Andrews and Edinburgh
