Play Me, I'm Yours: Bristol Street Pianos 2017

Thu, 17/08/2017 - Sun, 10/09/2017

Play Me I’m Yours, an artwork by Bristol artist Luke Jerram, is a musical art trail of individually-decorated street pianos installed in public spaces across a city for everyone to play and enjoy. Reaching over 10 million people worldwide, more than 1700 pianos have been set up in over 55 cities across the globe, from Hong Kong to New York, bearing the simple instruction Play Me I’m Yours. The project has spawned marriage proposals, inspired musical compositions, helped discover new stars and been played by celebrities including Jamie Cullum, Jools Holland, Alicia Keys and Cindy Lauper.

To mark the 10th anniversary of the project, Play Me, I’m Yours is coming to Bristol from 17 August to 7 September 2017.  18 street pianos, transformed by Bristol artists, will be installed across the city for the public to play and enjoy.
