Street Music

During the pandemic I spent a lot of time looking at YouTube and came across a variety of street musicians. Piano Boogie Woogie, in particular.

Here are 2 boogie woogie videos of Henri Herbert, a maestro of the keyboard, in a UK railway station and a French railway station.

The 3rd is of Jörg Hegemann + Stefan Ulbricht in a German bar. Toe tapping entertainment.

So many other examples of really excellent street musicians on YouTube.


this is glorious stuff…
@graham can you link this through to "music to lighten the mood… " please

ah… found a topic from some time ago…

Hi Bonzocat… it’s a long-standing musical thread, that’s all… it’s somewhere I (and anyone) can find a great collection of all sorts…

@Stella @Bonzocat I changed the Category of “Music to lighten the mood” to Culture as well (from Small Talk) and the two are now linked…

The initiative to put pianos in public spaces was an inspired one! Years back I would crawl off the first Eurostar in London to get to work for the week, and every now and then there was a piano player up early and playing. It made my day.

Here are my favourite street performers. I don’t think you could find them anywhere but France!

I wouldn’t be surprised if pianists get repetitive strain injuries…

That reminded me….a while back I watched the C4 series ‘The Piano’. Mika and Lang Lang, both of whom I think are great, selected street (station) piano players for a concert.

All were impressive but this little girl completely floored everyone.

And this is the concert at Royal Festival Hall

I think the full series is still available.


Down New Orlean’s way…

From New Orleans to Anglet, Biarritz, France….pity about the weather…
