Cathedral hosts music star who is winning fans across the globe

Ripon Cathedral sits alongside venues in San Francisco and Sacramento as part of a tour by acclaimed international performing accordionist Paul Chamblerlain.

The lunchtime recital, on Thursday 31 January, is the only performance scheduled in the Yorkshire region during 2013. After six UK concerts in the UK, he heads off to California to complete the tour.

Chamblerlain is one of the first classical accordionists to graduate from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow. While studying for a Masters in Performance there, he won the acclaimed Governors Recital Prize, subsequent to a live performance broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland’s Classics Unwrapped programme.

He has won fans for his musical ingenuity at international music festivals such as Baltica Harmonica in St. Petersburg, Russia, and Sata-Häme Soi Accordion festival in Ikaalinen, Finland.

He has also performed in France, Italy, Greece, and Bahrain, as well as part of groups that include the Paragon Ensemble and the Scottish Tango Ensemble.
