Folk – Paul Scourfield & Country Cousins & Emma Risley
Paul Scourfield is a stylish melodeon player and singer, performing material mainly from the English tradition.

His album “Freshly Squeezed” features songs and tunes from his solo repertoire. Paul is also a respected dance musician, playing with innovative ceilidh band Chalktown.
