Glasgow Piano City

Summer Lids Open Day at Mackintosh Queens Cross during the West End Festival. Interviews with some participants and music from Graeme, Alan, Fiona, Naho and Tom tell the story of the day and articulate what this event is all about. Free access to a grand piano in a grand place with no pressure of performance or need to 'entertain' anyone. Just 15mins of musical and personal connection an an experience to inspire and fuel many musical journeys. Many thanks to Charlie Stuart ( freshcharlie.com ) for making this short film ~ to Stuart Robertson for his still photography and to all the participants on the day.
