Paul is well known from his work with Belshazzar's Feast, Hoover the Dog, Karen Tweed, The Playford Liberation Front & The Pagoda Project. He is a superlative accordion player with a unique style inspired by church organ music, violins & concertinas! Paul is an experienced workshop leader tutoring regularly at Cecil Sharp House, Hands On weekends, Folkworks Summer Schools & Halsway Manor.

This workshop will cover musical arranging skills for concert performances. We will explore harmonies and improvisation, writing countermelodies & experimenting with textures & dynamics. Paul will bring two tunes already arranged but we will also work on three other simple melodies from scratch. These will be sent out a month in advance.
