Nick Banks is, as he puts it, “a young, single-adult college student” with a passion for playing organs, especially pipe organs. He routinely searches for and locates pipe organs in churches, concert halls, event centers, and other venues in the vicinity of his home in Utah County and reports his findings on a blog. Most of the organs and their locations are given to him by word of mouth from friends and family. His posts reflect his total joy and excitement in finding, playing, and photographing the instruments.
Nick created the blog in August 2014 to document his excursions, so that all who wish to find a pipe organ in close proximity may do so. The blog can be found at Pedals and Pipework. Nick has reviewed over 30 pipe organs, including a few digital organs, from Logan to Springville, with organs in Spanish Fork still on his wish list. He provides the location of each instrument with photos and a stop list. A visit to his site is highly recommended; you may be pleasantly surprised by what is found there. And, by the way, make his day; leave a comment, or use the contact form to tell him about other pipe organs in the area.
