OUR ARTIST FOR OCTOBER
Our next concert will be held on Tuesday October 16th at St.Peter’s Hall and features
the very popular artist Brett Wales.
Brett was born on the 23rd of August 1978 in Nottingham and raised by his grandparents
Marianne and Alwyn. He still lives and works from the very same house to this day.
His grandfather owned an Elka 707 Organ and the house was always full of music, so
it is little wonder that at a very young age Brett displayed a keen interest in music,
singing all the popular songs of the day.
Alwyn returned home from work one day to discover his young grandson playing the
organ with his left hand and keeping time to the rhythm unit. Alwyn asked if he
could do the same with his right hand. The response was astounding - unruffled by
the request, he did as asked, but with both hands at once. Brett was only three
at the time and Alwyn realised his grandson might be talented. Marianne and Alwyn
continued to encourage Brett to play as a hobby. Brett’s ability to listen to songs
and then sing them with uncanny accuracy was to manifest itself yet again. He began
playing by ear the music he heard, not just the melody, but accompaniment as well.
Alwyn built him a Wersi Helios Organ from a kit and he was also taken on visits
to the Wersi Organ Company in Germany where he heard and met the great Franz Lambert
and the master himself, Klaus Wunderlich. These artists made a huge impression on
Brett and have influenced his style of playing ever since.
Today Brett is constantly in demand, playing to packed out venues all over the country.
With bookings ongoing, we are happily assured of good music for the foreseeable future.
We can promise you another wonderful evening of musical entertainment with Brett
Wales, so why not come along and support live music in Woodhall Spa. We always give
a very warm welcome to our visitors - you will not be disappointed. Admission for

starts at 7.30 pm in St. Peter’s Hall, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa, LN10 6ST. Further
