POLLOKSHIELDS church marks the 100th anniversary of its Harrison and Harrison organ this year.

The southside church will celebrate the centenary with a recital on June 7 and another in September, in tribute to the organ’s inaugural concert on September 27, 1913.

Current organist Liam Devlin commented: “It is a tribute, not only to the members of the church then but to all generations since, that the organ is still in such a glorious condition and celebrating its 100th birthday in style.

“It’s a joy and a privilege to play it - it sounds wonderful and dramatic.”

Church minister reverend David Black added: “The sound fills the building beautifully and makes you think of how many times it has been played through Sunday services, weddings, funerals and special occasions.”

The concert starts at 7pm, and tickets cost £10, including a glass of wine.
