Holy Ground: January 2017
Devon-based singer-songwriter Paul Field will join us at Holy Ground this Sunday evening (8th January 2017 at 19.00).
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 has 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 his 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 and his solo CD “Being Myself “ was released in August 2016.
Canon Anna has invited Paul to be with us and tell us a bit about his work, his faith and how the two have come together. We hope he’ll be able to wrap in all up in the sharing of some of his songs.
