Award winning music producer, journalist, editor and programming consultant: Royal Northern College of Music Festival of Brass, The British Bandsman, Manchester Midday Concerts Society (Bridgewater Hall), Faber Music Ltd., PHM Publishing
'The world of brass bands owes Paul Hindmarsh a great debt of gratitude. Without him, the story of the last 25 years would have to be retold. He has achieved this with a single-minded dedication, enthusiasm, and patience. He has commissioned many composers to write for the medium, many of whom were new to the genre. Through the BBC in Manchester and now at the RNCM, Paul has developed the Festival of Brass into the most ground-breaking annual festival of its kind in the world.'
- Edward Gregson
'As a journalist and author, Paul Hindmarsh has become a valued critic of important recent repertoire for brass band, and it will be his writings that provide a yardstick against which our collective efforts will be judged by subsequent generations. In particular, he has been tireless in his advocacy for the music of Wilfred Heaton, and without his work many of that fine but elusive composer's less well known scores would now be lost to the world.'
- Philip Wilby
Welcome to my website, which tells you something about my varied activities in the music profession over 35 years, from an early period in Scotland as a singer, to 21 years as a music producer for BBC Radio 3 and now as a freelance music producer, publisher, curator and writer.
I have also set out some information about Paul Hindmarsh Music Productions, the company I set up to organise my professional life, and the Brass Band Heritage Trust, which I established to channel my charitable activities.
My thanks to Geert and Gerard Klaucke, of GK Graphic Designs, for designing and organising paulhindmarsh.com.
I hope you enjoy your 'visit'.
