Brian Sharp sadly passed away on 20th January 2016 at the age of 78 after a battle with cancer. He was a gifted organist and keyboard player who inspired many young players, while giving pleasure to millions of music lovers on stage, TV screen and radio.
For nearly two decades, in the 1980s and 1990s, Brian entertained thousands of holiday makers at the Sandford Park Holiday Village at Poole in Dorset, playing the Christie pipe organ he loved, combining the sound with electronic keyboards. Brian had a style of his own, producing magical arrangements that no-one has yet quite matched.
A new tribute website has been produced for the late Brian Sharp by Cled Griffin who presented him at Britain’s first Home Electronic Organ Festival, which took place at Pontin’s Barton Hall, Torquay in 1980. The website includes videos of Brian, interviews, tribute radio broadcasts and memories on the guestbook by players who knew him personally. The website guestbook is still open for tributes from all other players and producers who worked with him.
On this website other players and producers are given the opportunity to pay a tribute in their own words to a master player who will be long remembered, with his music living on through his many recordings he made over the years.
