My videos of Martin Atterbury at the Wurlitzer, Burton Beer Festival 2013.

Here are my videos from this years Burton Beer Festival where Martin Atterbury played some great stuff on the Wurlitzer in Burton Town Hall. Perfect accompaniment to a beer festival.
He played all the classic songs such as...
Roll out the barrel, I do like to be beside the seaside, My Delilah, Goodnight Sweetheart, There always be an England, God save the Queen, Land of hope and glory etc

This Wurlitzer Opus 1165 dates from 1925, when it was originally installed at the Cameo Theatre, Cleveland, USA. there was a fire in the early 1930s and it was repossessed by the Wurlitzer company and shipped to the UK where it was installed at the Forum Cinema, Wythenshaw, Manchester which opened on 10th July 1934.
The organ remained in the cinema until 1972 when the Burton Corporation acquired it for installation at the Town Hall.

Here you can see Martin Atterbury playing it at this years Burton Beer Festival.
