English organist and pianist Hugh Potton was born in 1962 in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. While a student at the Royal Northern College of Music, in Manchester, he was awarded the Meadowcroft Prize for organ, and this, along with an International Scholarship from the Belgian government, enabled him to study with the Flemish organist-composer Flor Peeters. During his postgraduate study at the Royal Academy of Music in London, Potton’s teachers included organists Peter Hurford, David Sanger, and Peter Lea-Cox. Potton has broadcast for the BBC, notably a live performance of Rachmaninoff’s First Piano Concerto, and has given organ recitals at such venues as Westminster Abbey and the cathedrals of Southwark, Peterborough, and Winchester.
