When you put an old piano in a public place like a railway station and invite anyone to have a go, who'd have thought ....

I've just done a little more research into this, see if there's one near you and if not, request one :)

Yes Yes! It looks like the one at St Pancreas station.
Here's another clip this time its one of the worlds finest pianist Valentina Lasitsa apparently on the same piano, Please enjoy, this girl is simply breathtakingly good in concert. (with a finely tuned piano of course!)
If I ever go to St Panaceas I'm gonna have a try at playing "I'm a little teapot" - and with two fingers!

Then listen to her play this Chopin composition, in my opinion one of the most beautiful piano pieces ever.

I remember clicking a spellchecker suggestion but didn't bother to double check - that's my excuse anyway and I'm sticking to it. :?

Thanks for posting this - I did a bit of digging and the guy in the video is called Henri john pierre Herbert and plays with a band called the Jim Jones Revue. I hadn't heard of them before, but boy am I glad I have now!

To me they have a bit of a feel of early Boomtown Rats about them.

And there are some clips on Youtube if you look as well.

Cheers

John

I'm waiting now for Mixcraft Booths to start popping up all over the world .. Just bring a mic or instrument, plug in and lay down a track. You could start a new project or add a track to an existing project ;)
