“Music for Woodhall”

President Nicholas Martin B.E.M.





























Our next concert features Paul Carman and will be held on Tuesday January 21st.2020 at St Peter’s Hall, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa.


Paul started playing at the age of 12 and by 14 he took first prize in a Midlands Arts Festival, beating many semi professional players!  Music was not his only passion and as a keen footballer he achieved the dizzy heights of a trial for Leicester City on the same day as school friend Gary Lineker.


He decided against a career in football and by the age of 20 Paul was appointed demonstrator for Godwin Organs, followed by a move to another Italian manufacturer Gem. An ambition of Paul’s was always to work for Yamaha and that was fulfilled when at 22, Paul joined Yamaha as a demonstrator working alongside Glyn Madden. Paul went on to become a regional manager for Yamaha until he left to form his own software company Keysoft.


It was whilst working on software that Paul made acquaintance with the Orla Organ Company with whom he worked for very many years.


Paul is probably best known around the country and abroad as a prolific concert artiste. His varied repertoire and easy-listening style is a firm favourite with so many music lovers and his programme typically covers all genres.  Music aside Paul must surely take credit for being one of the most humorous entertainers on the circuit. His softly spoken and unrivalled wit is often punctuated by his inimitable touches of “self criticism” over the microphone - which, although always said with tongue in cheek, never fails to evoke a sea of laughter. The final string to his bow must surely be his talented singing voice.


Do come along and support live music in Woodhall Spa.  We always give a warm welcome to our visitors, so do give us a try; you will not be disappointed.  Admission for visitors is only £8.00. The concert will take place on Tuesday 21st. January, 2020 and starts at 7.30 pm in St. Peter’s Hall, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa, LN10 6ST.
