07 April 2016Byron Jones says farewell to Sand Bay

Byron Jones ends his MUSIC FOR ALL festivals at Sand Bay.

After 31 years of music festivals at Sand Bay, now back in the hands of Pontin's, Byron Jones told around 300 organ-keyboard enthusiasts that it was his last event to be staged there.   With the site filled to only half its capacity, Byron said that it was no longer cost effective for both him and Pontin's.

Bryon said he was pleased to say that his events at the Victoria Hotel, Torquay, would continue with one at Spring time next year. Byron  thanked everyone for their continued support over the years.

15 March 2016Emerson Lake and Palmer

Although not llnked with the organ-keyboard scene like others mentioned on this website, we feel we must sadly report the death of Keith Emerson at the age of 71.    Emerson, Lake and Palmer were known for their big sound based on keyboards.   It is yet another sad loss to the keyboard world.

14 March 2016Unabridged sleeve notes - the new Klaus CD

The unabridged sleeve notes of the new Klaus Wunderlich double album

You may need a magnifying glass to see the sleeve notes on the new Klaus Wunderlich album - and even they are abridged.  So what we have done is to exclusively produce an unabridged version in our menu.

 

 

Alan Ashton (left), one of the sleeve note authors, probably knows more about the recordings of this world famous player than anyone else in the UK., after all, he produced the Klaus Wunderlich discography, for which the Wunderlich family gave him one of the maestro's gold discs - there are 13 of them!

 

The other sleeve note author is Ian Griffin (left), who, unknown to many enthusiasts, is a Wersi Helios owner, and in his spare time plays it at home as he loves its distinctive sounds.

Ian enjoyed playing the Wersi organ provided for him at the UK Oktoberfest in 2015 and liked the fact that it was all set up and ready to play.

13 March 2016Franz Lambert returns

Franz Lambert coming to UK

German Organ legend Franz Lambert will make a welcome return to the UK later this year headlining the Wersi Direct Oktoberfest Holiday Weekend in Huntingdon, Cambs. This will be his only UK performance in the UK during 2016.

On the right we picture Franz Lambert at Pointin's Barton Hall. His first visit was in 1994 - a Euro version, the year the channel tunnel opened and when the British Lottery first started.

More information about the forthcoming visit is available on the Organfax News page.
