As well as listening to his music you can also watch on a screen at how fast his hands and feet move.

Starting out at the young age of 13, Keith progressively made his way through Birmingham Conservatoire, Liverpool and Lincoln Cathedrals and their organ maestros.

He then achieved Fellowship of the Royal College of Organists and Associateship of the Royal College of Music.

Hearnshaw won a BBC innovation award in 2009 due to his Dan & the Magic Musician video that made the organ more popular with younger people.

Often associated with Carl Curley, the Pavarotti of the Organ, Keith has an impressive track record in his own right thanks to the construction of his programmes with film, light and classical musical items and his rapport with his audience.

His concert programmes are wide and varied, in a style that makes the organ very accessible.

To add visual affects to his performance he sometimes includes music with scrolling images from films such as Harry Potter, Titanic, and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Doors open at 6.45pm and the show begins at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £9, concessions £8 and children and students £4. They can be purchased at the Crossing on Newcastle Street, on-line at [email protected] or call 01909 475421.
