Paul Scourfield and Jon Loomes

Friday 13 November 2009

The Goose Jon Loomes and Paul Scourfield saw Paul and Jon play at Cheltenham Folk festival a couple of years ago and had been after them ever since (in the nicest possibly way of course!)

Paul is a stylish and highly respected melodeon player and singer, taking material mainly from the English tradition. Inspired to take up the melodeon after going to see John Kirkpatrick at the local folk club, he has since spent a year being mentored by the great man himself.

Jon is a fine interpreter of the tradition, creating wonderful new versions of old songs. He is a fine guitarist – a wonderfully melodic player – also adding fiddle, hurdy gurdy and concertina.

Jon and Paul’s music combines effortlessly, with soaring melodies and fine singing, packed with energy and imagination. This was  another great night at the Mag!

And hey! You can watch a clip of them on youtube with, erm, the nodding heads of the Goose in the front row 🙂
