Many a middle-aged heart will be fluttering as 80’s heartthrob Paul Young brings his band Los Pacaminos to Redruth next week.

The British Tex-Mex band will be performing at The Zone nightclub on September 8 from 7pm as part as the town’s three day pasty festival.

Formed by Paul Young in 1993, as an antidote to the gloomy English winter, the band was just a group of friends getting together in their spare time for fun, sharing their passion of playing, Americana/Tex-Mex music when not touring or dealing with their respective professional |commitments.

Tex-Mex music is somewhere between the Mariachi and Norteno styles of Mexico and the Country/Blues sounds of South-West America. The band empathises with Ry Cooder, Flaco Jimenez, The Texas Tornados and Los Lobos....

All of Los Pacaminos members were part of Paul Young’s band through the 80’s and 90’s.

With friendship now stretching over 20 years, their concerts take on a festive party atmosphere with |members of the audience often being invited onto the stage to dance and drink tequila.

Held from September 6 to 8, The Mining and Pasty Festival is a three day event celebrating the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Redruth; through pasties, mining and music. The event is focussed around the town centre and is free to attend.

The Pasty Festival will this year |be opened by TV chef and |environmentalist James Strawbridge, and Marion Symonds (as seen on Britain's Best Bakery - ITV1) in a live recording for the Cornwall |TV Channel Local great-grandmother Eunice Woolcock, who sprung to fame with her larger-than-life |personality, and exceptional crimping skills, on ITVs Food Glorious Food, will be joined by Elaine Ead, as seen on BBC's The Fixer.
