About Elizabeth

Elizabeth Harrison in 2014

Elizabeth Harrison, born 1st December 1976 just outside Preston, Lancashire, has established herself on the organ circuit not only as a musician but also as an entertainer. Her varied musical repertoire along with her Lancashire humour has made her one of the country’s favourite performers.  Elizabeth has been playing on the concert circuit for over 20 years. She has a wealth of experience playing both electronic and theatre organs. Elizabeth is one of the busiest performers on the circuit but still finds time to play for dances.  She plays her portable Roland Atelier AT350C organ and also owns a beautiful Allen MDS theatre 3 organ which is kept at home. Elizabeth's concerts are well rehearsed and she performs music to suit all tastes played in a refreshing style and presented with her own brand of light hearted humour. She always leaves audiences requesting more. 

Elizabeth has recently teamed up with Nicholas Martin to host music breaks called 'Fine Tune Events' www.finetuneevents.co.uk.

Elizabeth lives at a hill top farm called Cuthbert Hill Farm in the Forest of Bowland, Chipping near Preston in Lancashire. For many years she has travelled all sides of the UK (in her Mini Cooper Clubman) playing for organ and keyboard clubs and has built up a first class reputation for playing high quality 'live' performances.  In addition, Elizabeth plays regularly for ballroom & sequence dancing.  She has committed hundreds of pieces of music to memory and currently uses a Roland AT350c Organ with FBT EvomaXx4 PA. Elizabeth enjoys playing theatre organs and is not afraid to use the instrument to its full potential. It has often been commented that Elizabeth has a unique style and she has excellent musical feeling. Her concerts are performed and presented to a very professional standard and Elizabeth has a brilliant sense of humour.

Elizabeth formed and runs Preston Community Concerts in Leyland. These are monthly charity organ concerts and an average attendance is over 100 people. Thousands of pounds have been made for local charities since the concerts began in Jan 2011. Elizabeth plans to start a similar event in the Blackburn area in 2014.

Practical Elizabeth is enthusiastic and down to earth. She is a qualified graphic designer, gardener, HGV and PCV driver and runs a houskeeping business along side her organ playing business. Never a dull moment! Over the years, Elizabeth has collected advertising memorabilia, in particular the famous flour grader by Homepride, Fred. She runs a collectors club for him. Elizabeth also collects small compact and vintage tractors and enjoys showing them at local vintage exhibitions.
