The Weyhill Electronic Organ Society November concert featured Elizabeth Harrison, making her fifth visit to the club.

Elizabeth, who lives on a farm near Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria, is arguably the busiest player on the circuit, performing for clubs as well as for ballroom and sequence dancing.

As if that was not enough she also organises, and performs at, several festivals and numerous successful fund-raising charity concerts.

Even then, she still finds time to occasionally milk the cows.

As one might reasonably expect, dance rhythms were employed for a number of Elizabeth’s medleys although an extensive variation of music was performed, including several ballads and marches.

The first half included a selection of titles purposely containing the word ‘heart’, such as Young At Heart and I Left My Heart In San Francisco, followed by a selection of theme tunes from radio and television.

For example, many members of the audience would have recognised Out Of The Blue (from Saturday evening’s ‘Sports Report’), In Party Mood (from ‘Housewives’ Choice’) and What’ll I Do (from TV’s ‘Birds Of A Feather’).

A couple of Nat King Cole hits were featured, as well as a few show tunes, before the session ended with Strangers In The Night and the popular James Last composition, Games That Lovers Play.

Suitably refreshed, the audience welcomed Elizabeth back for the second half, which opened with Cilla Black’s Something Tells Me, followed by A Kind Of Hush, a hit for Herman’s Hermits.

A delightful performance of Music Box Dancer preceded the familiar march, Blaze Away.

A few more themes were played – including Always There from Howards’ Way and Lara’s Theme from Dr Zhivago – whilst a medley of hits from the 60s pleased the listeners. As the evening drew to a close, Elizabeth performed the lovely theme from Nicholas and Alexandra’– Too Beautiful To Last – before ending with I Could Have Danced All Night .

Artistes are rarely allowed to escape without an encore and We’ll Meet Again seemed more than appropriate.
