Last year David Windle announced his new summer season residency on the North Pier in Blackpool. Here he presented a series of organ concerts on the Yamaha FX20 three times a week giving 12 hours of organ music to its visitors.
Unfortunately, due to budget cuts the concerts will not be reinstated for the 2010 season.
We wish David well and hope that the management at the Pier may reconsider their decision.
