About Joseph Harris

Reference Links

"Joseph Harris One final figure deserves attention – for being another true professional with a nation-wide reputation. Joseph Harris was not a native of Birmingham; born in Bristol, he gained a B.A. from Oxford in 1773 at the time he was organist at Ludlow. As a virtuoso keyboardist he gained prominence in concerts around the region, appearing in Birmingham several times during the 1770s and early 1780s before gaining the post of organist at St. Martin’s in 1787. Among his pupils was Anne Boulton, daughter of the Birmingham industrialist and Lunar Society member Matthew Boulton."
