Paul Handyside is a folk and roots singer songwriter. His song writing style has been compared to artists as varied as Chris Difford, Billy Bragg, Robyn Hitchcock, Green Gartside, Elvis Costello, Jeff Buckley and Martin Carthy.
He began his musical career with eighties indie darlings Hurrah! The jangle pop band had album releases on Kitchenware and Arista Records from 1982 to 1991 and toured extensively worldwide. During the nineties he toured and recorded with friend and Kitchenware labelmate Martin Stephenson.
The latest album Tide, Timber & Grain was released in April 2016 with elements of traditional British folk and sixties protest songs emerging in Handyside’s now well established and diverse musical palette.
Paul appeared at the Mill back in 2018 and all those who saw him left impressed by his songs, singing and performance. We are delighted to welcome him back.
Tickets are £9 in advance and £11 on the door.
