In the first half she gives a potted history of the organ, demonstrates basic organs including the harmonium and melodica and sings/plays songs to demonstrate. The second half is given over to domestic electronic organs from the stylophone to the Casiotone MT range with demonstrations and a finale revising all the instruments in a Crumble Song instrumental.
This event is particularly suitable for festivals and comedy style lecture events.
The show involves a fold-up harmonium and a large collection of portable instruments so an additional assistant is needed to help set up, stage manage and take the equipment to the event.

B) Two 25 minute sets with a 15-20 minute interval
