Voices from the Peak – Live! with poet Mark Gwynne Jones

This Autumn, Derbyshire poet Mark Gwynne Jones is to release three new audio chapters of his popular series Voices from the Peak, and will be performing his award winning one-man show Voices from the Peak – Live! in venues around the county and beyond.

Described by The Times as ‘a fascinating quest… An audio odyssey… and some marvellous Derbyshire reflections…’, Voices from the Peak is a journey through the Peak District in word, film and sound.

The three new audios, Raven Tor, Nine Ladies, and The Blessing Of Water, will be available on  from October 3rd.

To celebrate the new work Mark will deliver a funny and absorbing in-person presentation of his popular series, Voices from the Peak. Drawing on childhood experiences and encounters with poachers, shepherds, and mineral miners – here is a landscape rich with both beauty and danger. An award-winning show that rediscovers the stories that connect us to the land.
