Brilliant day today walking the Wayside Arts Trail around Burnley, taking in two of the pianos as part of the ‘Play me I’m yours’ project in Burnley and Blackburn – www.bbstreetpianos.com. One of the pianos is sited by the amazing Singing Ringing Tree which makes haunting music as the wind blows through it. There was also a bird’s nest wedged at the top of the tree (well, that’s where birds do nest after all).
After our walk, we travelled to a third piano at Thomson Park. This was a bit of a pilgrimage, as until about three weeks ago this piano was in our living room. For a few years, it had been relegated to a kind of badly-designed piece of storage furniture. So when I heard about this project, I decided to give it a new (albeit temporary) home.
