Robert Wolfe is recognised as one of the world’s leading interpreters of the theatre organ. Acclaimed for his sheer artistry, renowned for his musicality, he is without question one of the top British organists.
At the early age of sixteen, he became the youngest musician at that time to join the team of organists at the world famous Tower Ballroom, Blackpool. After three years, in 1981, he was invited to inaugurate the Wurlitzer show at the Thursford Collection, near Fakenham in Norfolk.
This “sight and sound spectacular” has come to be known locally, nationally and internationally as “The Thursford Experience”. From early spring to late autumn, seven days a week, Robert draws large crowds who delight in his warm personality and his unique musical combination of meticulous accuracy and interpretative sensitivity.
On a return visit to Rye to play the Historic Rye Wurlitzer Theatre Organ and on a Lowery Electronic he had the packed audience in raptures. More in the magazine supplement.
