TINKLING the ivories is becoming a firm favourite in Rotherham especially now.

That’s because the Urban Pianos project came in from the cold to take shelter at the weekend as part of the Busking Day of the Rotherham Open Arts Festival Fringe.

The reclaimed and customised pianos have found homes in the Passion Cafe, Sophisticakes Tea Shop, the RAIN Building, The Antiques Centre, Imperial Buildings , Whistle Stop Sweet Shop and the Old Market Gallery.

And on Saturday composer Joshua Goodman, was encouraging local people to give it a go.

Joshua has created a simple melody that can be played by one person or two less confident people together, so people of all abilities can join in.

And pretty soon his latest melody was being belted out with varying degrees of competence.

Joshua said: “There was a fantastic level of interest and I was amazed how creative Rotherham people were with the piano.”
