Organ funnyman on hall stage at Stokers

THE humble organ may not be at the top of your list for weekend entertainment, but organ aficionado Barry Morgan could well change your mind.

This Saturday night, Morgan will take to the stage at the Stokers Siding/Dunbible Memorial Hall.

"I've never been to Stokers Siding," Morgan said. He is excited to perform in the village, after receiving "a request via the interwebs" from people wanting him to share his "home organ party".

Morgan is a big fan of small villages.

"It's not the size that's important, it's what you do there," he said.

Morgan's show is based around the foundations of the home organ, which rose to fame in the '70s and '80s.

He said he was first introduced to the organ, which he refers to as the "original DJ machine", through a family friend.

"Every since then it's been a match made in heaven," he said.

"Music helps with my nerves, particularly my bed-wetting," he joked.

Morgan said tonight's show would be a "lot of fun".

"I'll be playing this big old organ, I'll be wearing a safari suit," he said.

"It's a bit like a Tupperware party but with a whole lot less plastic and a whole lot more organ."
