I hope that one of the numbers in his repertoire is "Don't Rain on my Parade"!

Cheers!

Interesting that he has a message on his piano saying, "This Machine Kills Facists". Wonder what that means in this context??

I love Colin! I have spoken to him more than once, I follow him on Instagram, and even offered to help with pianos somehow.

His "Opera on the Square" has been really cool. He has singers (in Washington Square) stand on his piano and sing while he plays the reduction. Very cool stuff all around. I am glad you posted this Keith.

That is a reference to Woody Guthrie.

That is a reference to Woody Guthrie.

Who wrote "Sinking of the Reuben James" and "Round and Round Hitler's Grave" and painted that slogan on his guitar during WWII.

Back to the main topic, I'd like to catch one of Colin's performances. Kudos to him for putting in the effort to move a grand piano through traffic to perform.

'Music is the healing force of the Universe' (albert ayler)

the piano's caption refers to 'Fascists' not 'facists'(sic), originating with the 'fasces', bundles of branches carried by the lictors who accompanied Roman magistrates. the original caption on Woody Guthrie's guitar is well known to many 'folkies' and miscellaneous pro-humanist or anti-establishment hominids ; the artist's personal acquaintance with the Guthries would not be requisite for his homage and continuation of the tradition.
