Last Sunday evening's Easter Offering Service was organised by MIWB (Methodist Women In Britain). It focused on their work with the Dalit people, those in the very lowest position in the caste system in Indian society. Click here for more details. MWIB now invite you to their next major event -- Paul Field in Concert at Westminster Central Hall on 21st May 3-5 pm. Tickets for this concert (£5) can be obtained from Ruth Watkins, email: email@example.com.
Since 1976 Paul has worked as a Songwriter, Composer, Producer and Performer in the UK and around the world. He has received an Ivor Novello Award from the British Academy of Songwriters and Composers and a Dove Award (and two nominations) from GMA in Nashville along with numerous other awards from ASCAP in the USA. He has had chart success with his songs in the UK, USA, Holland, South Africa and Germany and has received many Platinum and Gold records for his work.
Much of his work today revolves around using songs and music (integrating where possible other creative disciplines such as video, dance and photography) to highlight Social Justice issues. He explores how music can be used to explore our emotional responses to them in a contemporary way, relating to the power of the 'protest song' and its historical impact.
