Paul Field In Concert at the New Room, Bristol.
Come and enjoy an evening with singer/songwriter Paul Field in the attractive 18th century surroundings of the oldest Methodist building in the world.
Since 1976, Paul has worked as a songwriter, composer, producer and performer in the UK and around the world. He has received an Ivor Novello Award from the British Academy of Songwriters and Composers and a Dove Award (and two nominations) from GMA in Nashville along with numerous other awards from ASCAP in the USA.
He has had #1 chart success with his songs in the UK, USA, Holland, South Africa and Germany and has received many platinum and gold records for his work.
In recent years he’s also worked as a part time lecturer at Bath Spa University on their MA Songwriting course, critiquing students work and leading several master classes. He also runs his own songwriting workshops.
Much of Paul’s work today revolves around using songs and music (integrating where possible other creative disciplines such as video, dance and photography) to highlight social justice issues and explore how music can be used to explore our emotional responses to them in a contemporary way, relating to the power of the ‘protest song’ and its historical impact.
Recently he’s written & produced 'The Stolen Lives Project' in collaboration with The Wilberforce Institute at Hull University. www.stolenlives.co.uk
This concert will be a 90-minute performance (with no interval) which will feature a selection of Paul's songs and extracts from 'The Stolen Lives Project'.
