Blazing a trail from her base in Nashville to the UK, join poet, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Allison Russell (Po’Girl, Birds of Chicago, Our Native Daughters) at The Fire Station as she brings her first ever solo project, Outside Child (2021), to the stage.

Born and raised in Montreal, Russell’s music is imbued with the colours of her city – the light, the landscape, the language – but also the trauma that she suffered there. Outside Child is a heartbreaking reflection on a childhood no one should have to endure, and at the same time a powerful reclamation – asserted from a place of healing, of motherhood, of partnership – and from a new home made in Nashville.

This event is part of The Fire Station opening season – Firestarters. Firestarters is commissioned by Sunderland Music Arts and Culture Trust and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
