Changing Sides

An evening of reflective song and story, led by transgender singer-songwriters Simon de Voil and Adhamh Roland.

Join these two vibrant, funny and deeply compassionate men as they share insights into the way their transgender identity has shaped their spiritual journeys.
Adhamh Roland is an activist, educator and a practitioner of Theraveda buddhism, temporarily based in Olympia.
“Frighteningly clever and disarmingly heartfelt folksongs”
Adhamh is a genderqueer visionary activist who sings about resilience, human experience, evolution, interconnectedness and freedom from cycles of violence and oppression. Roland, hails from St. Louis Missouri where he began his music career belting anti-Capitalist anthems and Ani Difranco covers as a street performer at age 13. Roland’s multi-faceted and thoughtful style is a nod to the many journeys his life has offered him since those days; from the geographic, to the socio-political, to the spiritual. His songs embrace contradiction and dismantle duality in a poetic fabric of words, melody and spirit.
Simon de Voil is a boatbuilder and interSpiritual minister. Originally from Scotland, Simon now lives in Port Townsend.
“Simon's music is an extension of his spiritual path and presence. With a mindfulness that is rare and refreshing, he invites every listener into a reverent space made brighter and warmer by his care.” — Aimeé Ringle
Simon's music explores themes of the inner landscape of the soul, the enchantment of the natural world and a personal journey to follow an unexpected calling. His musical work includes playing for rites of passage, healing, worship services, and community-building events. Simon's songs are his way of making sense of the beauty, vulnerability and endless richness of this human life
