Original, Folk Jazz fusion
Created by Paul Hutchinson (Piano Accordion) and Karen Wimhurst (Clarinets) to evolve their fusion sound, Pagoda Project brings together a unique blend of traditional folk music with jazz improvisation to create a warm and dynamic sound.
Paul Hutchinson, also known for Belshazzars Feast, and Karen Wimhurst, previously a member of the Cauld Blast Orchestra, have a wealth of musical experience in a diverse range of genres from classical to folk. Both are talented composers, educators and performers and are highly regarded musicians in their own right.
Their debut album Clarion was released in 2015 on the Sylvafield label. The album achieved a 5 start release in Songlines magazine and was featured on the magazine's "Songs of The World" album in 2016
