London’s The Piano Works to host live music gigs online


When you can’t go see live music performers, they come to you. At least that’s what London’s The Piano Works is doing with their latest online gigs as they work hard to keep the community afloat during the pandemic.

This Friday and Saturday evening (27 & 28 March), those of us stuck at home are able to turn the music up and escape with 4 hours of non-stop live music streaming into the living room – or bedroom if the housemates aren’t keen on all the noise.

Tune in via the Piano Works Farringdon Facebook page from 8pm to midnight to enjoy non-stop live music. Dance like nobody’s watching and request your favourite songs via Facebook for the band to perform! Yeah, that’s right. They’re even taking requests.

And 100% of all donations will go to the musicians – one of the many groups of people really suffering right now.

Alan Lorrimer, founder of The Piano Works says: “We are closing our doors but are still committed to supporting our musicians through these tough times and providing our guests with the Piano Works experience they know and love.

“We also feel a great responsibility, as part of London’s live music community and history, to make every effort to continue supporting our amazing performers. The music industry in London is not only important to our society but also the source of employment for tens of thousands of artist-performers, staff, and suppliers.

“London has survived much worse threats – our community spirit, resilience and sense of humour have always turned adversity into triumph.”
