I am very pleased to announce that Mel Biggs Music is now proudly supported by Acorn Instruments!
Pete approached me with the opportunity after seeing me teach and play during the Winster Melodeon Playgroup in October 2017.
We are looking forward to working together and I am VERY EXCITED to have the opportunity to play such beautiful Castagnari instruments!
Paul has been a full time professional musician for 8 years.
He started on DG melodeon and by hard work and dedication has honed his skills to now be a very proficient player in DG and GC, covering French and Swedish music and also plays BC button accordion.
Although Bellows and Buttons will be his debut in teaching a group of players, he is a well regarded, very experienced private tutor with pupils in England, Scotland, Italy, USA and Sweden with lessons carried out both in person or via the internet.
Paul is also a well respected band musician & caller with his own band,The New Fox Ceilidh Band and guest musician in several other bands inc North Yorkhire based FiddlersWreck Ceilidh Band.
Not content with all that Paul is a solo performer, often singing with melodeon and guitar (not at the same time!) plus performing as a duo with fiddle player, Sarah Loughran. Paul was also previously a musician and dancer with Black Swan Rapper from York.
Paul is a dedicated and talented musician who we are delighted to have on board as a tutor for the event.
