Glad Cafe Lockdown Piano
The Glad Cafe is a cafe/bar/restaurant/arts hub/music venue in the Southside of Glasgow. We opened the place almost 10 years ago now and I like to think that we’re one of the most respected music venues of our size (120 cap) in the country.
The Glad Cafe’s piano was donated to us before we even had a premises by the excellent pianist Ben Sinkie. It was the piano he learnt on; an old Spencer upright school piano from the Murdoch, McKillop & Co. Ltd. shop in Glasgow.
The piano hasn’t been tuned during lockdown but I’ve been enjoying the chance of having a little play on it while our premises have been empty and took the chance to sample it using Pianobook’s MVP template.
Hope you enjoy playing this one.

A piano with a character
Really nice characteristic piano, loud but soft at the same time. Only thing that bothers me is that higher keys play too quiet, that’s why only 4/5.
It sounds carefully recorded and the transitions appear smooth. Playing it really takes me to that place, the Lockdown Cafe in Glasgow.
Thanks for sharing!
