SPIKE TAYLOR "THE HARMONIST" HOSTS IF YOU GOT EARS MARCH 2017
Spike Taylor is a local artist and piano tuner. His projects can be found at theharmonist.ca
For the month of March, 2017, he will host If You Got Ears and feature unusual piano music from around the world, spanning the age of record. He will share stories of the piano technician trade and of the instrument itself. Each week will build toward Piano Day – a new global initiative celebrated on the 88th day of the year to draw attention to the pianos in our midst and the people who love them. CKUT and The Harmonist are co-presenting a Piano Day event at Sala Rossa on March 29 featuring the music of Montreal poet/hero Leonard Cohen in a benefit fundraiser for a new used piano for the street youth outreach centre Dans-La-Rue.
