Friday 27 October -
Paul Downes. Paul's sensitive and yet fun approach to his live performances puts him among the most respected artists on the British acoustic music scene today. He's been introduced (much to his embarrassment) as one of the greatest acoustic guitarists in the world. It is easy to see why when you see the dazzling array of styles he performs with effortless brilliance, but he considers himself a singer of songs, rather than a guitar technician. Paul has a rich musical background that has progressed through working with Phil BeerThe Arizona Smoke RevuePete Seeger and, currently, The Joyce Gang
