IT IS more than 20 years since Andrew Nix created his own little bit of history by becoming the first organist to play in front of a public audience at the Rex in Elland.
Next Sunday (May 17), he brings those skills back to the Rex to play the latest in its monthly series of concerts.
Andrew, who was born in Selby, is another musician who began organ lessons as a boy. He started lessons aged 10 and was soon winning competitions at local and national talent competitions.
By the time he was in his late teens, Andrew became a professional musician and spent four years as organist and musical director for Butlins Holiday Worlds.
These days, he is resident organist at the York Museum of Mechanical Music, and is a popular guest player at the Rex. Hear him in a two hour concert in Elland on May 17 at 2.30pm. Tickets are £4 including a film novelty.
