     I recently wrote this poem I'd like to share
It's called, ' Grandma's Piano'



It's a problem that's faced by many families, I've seen this dilemma countless times over my years in the trade. Maybe this is a solution for some.

Jules Holland
                   





I had an early start tuning the piano for Jules, before the sound checks and bands started. It was a great day and Jules's show was very good with lots of Boogie Woogie and he seemed to enjoy himself as much as the crowd.
 I used to be involved in preparation work on pianos for the Jools Holland TV show, when I was working in London. I've attended the filming of the show and met Jools and admire his playing and the good work he does to promote new musical talent.

  Sir Elton John at the Eden sessions.

Elton John's concert at The Eden project

I've just had an exiting couple of days tuning over at the Eden Project for Sir Elton John. Having worked for him many years ago on TFI Friday it was great to once more be involved in concert work at the highest level. Whether he's your cup of tea or not you have to admire his almost 50 year career and the fact that at 68 years old he can still play a 2 and a half hour set with hardly a pause to catch his breath.    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqgbHnFNHUM


No packed house and rapturous applause for my performance, just a few sound and light men with better things to do. Oh well..
