The Coast to Coast Closeup is presented by The Eagle River Casino and Travel Plaza in Whitecourt .

Originally from Tatamagouche Nova Scotia Paul Randy Mingo grew up playing and singing at local variety shows and concerts. He started taking piano lessons at the age of 4 and was consumed with learning the art.

By the time he was twelve he wanted to play more of a country style and was having trouble with the structure on the piano so he turned to the guitar and this is when his songwriting began.

All through high school he participated in concerts and plays always loving the stage and when he turned 16 he had the opportunity to attend a larger school with a better music program where he was taught by Paul Barrett.

It was then that all the theory he had been learning started to come full circle and make sense and he started to develop his style of country rockabilly that he has incorporated into his songs.

At the age of 19 Paul was playing at clubs and bars but also giving back by participating in the local sled fillers and the Christmas Daddies’ telethon which both raise money for kids at Christmas.

Paul has been playing music now for over 20 years.
