Paul Scourfield is a stylish melodeon player and singer, performing material mainly from the English tradition. Bought up surrounded by the folk music of his parents, he was inspired to take up the melodeon after going to see John Kirkpatrick at the local folk club.
He has appeared at major festivals including Sidmouth, Whitby, Warwick, and Towersey, as well as folk clubs around the country. Paul is a well respected workshop leader, giving insight into the mysteries of the melodeon and inspiration to participants.
Paul also works in schools and was involved with the EFDSS Full English project, taking traditional music, song and dance into primary and secondary schools in Cambridgeshire.
Paul has released an album “Freshly Squeezed” featuring songs and tunes from his solo repertoire. In addition to his solo work Paul is a respected dance musician, playing with innovative ceilidh band Chalktown, formed by ex-members of the legendary “Gas Mk 5”.
Paul brings warmth and humour to any venue he visits, along with songs and tunes which alternately excite, move or make you laugh!!
