Someone who always thinks big, Paul has just filmed the video for his new single This Train is Bound for Glory on Embsay Steam Railway.The shoot featured an all-singing, all-dancing cast with ten professional dancers, a choreographer, the film crew, oh, and the Paul Mirfin Band.The organisers of True North would like to thank Hope Church Harrogate, Knaresborough Lions and private funders for supporting the True North event.
