Paul Race would admit to being a “jack of many trades, master of few.” In part, that’s because he’s always been busy pursuing new and old interests alike – plus raising a family and working 35+ years as a technical writer.
But this is part of Paul’s music site page.
Coming from a family that loved all kinds of music, Paul learned early to appreciate the Weavers, Romberg, Gershwin, Leadbelly, Basie, Coltrane, and Seeger. He also learned to play much of that music, on guitar, banjo, and saxophone. Later, he learned to love and play the music of Peter, Paul, and Mary, Buffy St. Marie, Cat Stevens, Chicago, BS&T, Rich Mullins, Larry Norman, Second Chapter of Acts, Jim Croce, CS&N, and many others.
To the songs Paul learned from his heros, he added songs he wrote himself. For decades, he performed them in just about any kind of performance situation you can imagine – coffeehouses, festivals, churches, schools, nightclubs, camps, street fairs – you name it.
Recently, Paul has focused more on helping other folks get and stay involved in music. But folks who remember Paul’s songs occasionally ask him where his “artist” page is. So we’re updating a site that Paul first put together when he was “gigging” regularly and HTML was in its infancy.
Paul is still available for concerts of all sizes. Paul can also do specialized concerts such as:
- Songs about trains
- Songs about the history of the American Heartland
- Christmas concerts
- Gospel concerts
Keep playing, keep singing, and keep sharing!
