King of the keyboards is back to play town’s theatre organ
Published 13/01/14



BRITAIN’S number one organist from the home of ballroom dancing — the Tower Ballroom at Blackpool — comes back to Henley for an afternoon concert on Sunday.

Phil Kelsall will give a guest appearance on the theatre organ in Henley town hall with an afternoon of foot-tapping songs interspersed with his legendary wit. Gordon Mintern, of the Henley and District Theatre Organ trust, said: “Phil has just returned from another successful season in the Christmas show at Thursford, where he is affectionately known as the king of the keyboards.

“The uncanny thing about Phil’s music is that when you listen to it it’s hard to realise Phil is still only in his late forties, and he has truly mastered this instrument of choice.

“A lively welcome will be extended from Henley town hall, where so many of his numerous fans from the south will be transported to the world of Phil Kelsall.”

The show on Sunday, January 12 starts at 3pm at Henley town hall. Tickets are available on the door.


A NEW season of folk starts at the Nettlebed Club with the legendary Phil Beer who will be playing with the Bully Wee Band.

Organiser Mike Sanderson said: “The four-piece Bully Wee Band is known as one of the most exciting bands on the circuit and now they only tour for a few dates in January so it’s not one to miss.”

The band originally started back in the Seventies but after they split in 1983 the musos went their separate ways — until a chance encounter between two of them at the Faversham Folk Club 20 years later. After a quick jamming session they reformed the band and went on tour in 2004. They have toured every January since.

The band is supported by string maestro Phil Beer, one half of the Show of Hands duo, known as one of the most popular ambassadors for acoustic roots music in the country. Born in Devon, Phil played his first gig at the age of 14, and has not looked back since. The concert at the Nettlebed Club is on Monday, January 20 at 8pm.
