Poul Bech has recently emerged as a singer/songwriter from New Westminster’s community stages though this is what he has done most of his life, ‘singing and guitar-picking’ as he calls it.
Born in Alborg, Denmark, Poul immigrated to Canada as a young boy. Singing as hobby has been a constant but writing and performing his own songs is a new experience for him. He credits this development to the support and encouragement he receives at the RCLAS Songwriters’ Open Mic, a group that meets every week at Renaissance Bookstore.
Poul enjoys a diverse range of musical genres so his songs reflect that diversity. He can be found performing at various open stages and campfires throughout BC.
At the March 27 Gathering of Surrey Muse, Poul will present some of the songs he has developed in the last couple of years. Click below for more information about the event:
