"I am your local piano, just waiting to be played. Come tickle my ivories, while away the minutes waiting for a train, be my friend" ... Standing in the railway station with it's brightly covered exterior the Herne Hill Piano catches the eye of all who pass by.
All see the piano a few stop and sit, a few take a moment and play. Those people change the tone of the space, quite literally, and that's why the piano is there.
People of all ages stop to play music .... young and old.
We met a few people playing the piano while passing and stopped to listen and chat. You can watch and listen to what we recorded and listen on for more on the story of the people's piano in Herne Hill if you like.
