Hugh Banton played the piano from an early age, and studied classical organ under Percy Saunders at Wakefield Cathedral in the 1960s. He later developed his other hobby - electronics - as an engineer at the BBC. In the 70s he played organ with rock music innovators Van der Graaf Generator and regularly built organs and electronic gadgets.
Since the 80s he has designed digital church organs, and his company 'The Organ Workshop' have installed instruments throughout the UK and the world. Alongside this he now regularly plays with the recently reformed VdGG.


Hugh’s performances below were played on organs entirely using Organ Workshop digital technology.
