GEORGE SEIVEWRIGHT
(1932-2006)

His professional music career began as a 14 year-old playing at concert parties in Aberdeen and he became the first person in the city to play the Hammond organ when he brought one to the north-east in 1955.
He established a name for himself and his band in the north-east of Scotland and staged lunchtime performances at the old Odeon cinema in Aberdeen.

George was also renowned for his skills on the dance floor and was part of the Seivwright school of dance alongside his older sister Gladys and brother Brian, that helped generations of north-east dancers through their exams. He was musical director for all of the school's shows and was also known as a dancer in his own right, even performing for the Queen at Balmoral.

George was 74 when he died on the 4th of January 2006.
