“Music for Woodhall”
President Nicholas Martin B.E.M.
OUR ARTIST FOR JANUARY
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.
