Paul Bradley is a rightstrung lefthanded guitarist, bandleader, composer, triple-octave singer, improviser, sessioneer, collaborator and multi-instrumental livelooper-cum-raconteur.
I’m so excited to have Paul Bradley confirmed as the opening act for this, the premier performance of ‘Think of a Song’ at Bath Fringe Festival on 31st May.
Paul and I originally met onstage in a backstage bar at Glastonbury Festival in 2014, when we had both been invited to play with Chris Powell’s awesome improv/funk collective ‘World Government’.
That, in turn, had come about for me after a chance encounter with Chris backstage at The Bandstand, run by Bath Fringe impresario Steve Henwood. So there seems to be a pleasing symmetry to having Paul open for me at the Fringe. Moreover, Paul’s unique, innovative and powerfully idiosyncratic performance style will suit this event perfectly.
