Paul Micklethwaite

6 May 2011

Paul MicklethwaitePaul supported Alasdair Roberts on his third visit to the Goose in May 2011.

Paul is a local lad – we do like to support local talent! He’s also a Yorkshireman who plays acoustic guitar and sings, often at the same time (it says here).

He has been playing guitar since he was young and started singing as well fairly recently, after he found out you can sing folk in a Yorkshire accent,lol.

He says his influences are many … Martin Simpson, Chris Wood, Led Zeppelin III, Baby Bird, Steve Vai, Vaughan Williams, Mark Knopfler, Sting, Martha Tilston, Kate Rusby, Dweezil Zappa, Joey Tempest, Richie Kotzen, Nic Jones, Cara Dillon, The Divine Comedy.

Paul had often dropped in to the Mag and done the occasional floorspot, but this was his first support slot at DHFC.
