Karine Polwart “Enough is Enough”

This piece of music has been composed with the express purpose of inviting choirs, street bands and community groups to learn and perform it, and join an exciting, collective musical response to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) which will be held in Glasgow in November 2021.

Want to get involved? Express interest & sign up for more info at http://oimusica.co.uk/cop26/ We extend the invite far and wide, to any music collective interested in joining the global call for swift action on climate justice and a shift to an economic model that values collective wellbeing above relentless economic growth.

This piece is a co-creation between Karine Polwart, Oi Musica & The Soundhouse Choir Music –
