Emma Knights Productions Presents:
‘THE PIANO MEN’

7th March, 10.15am and 12.30pm in the Drawing Room
Running time 60 minutes
Why is it that when we think of the piano it is always men that are at the forefront?
Using songs of my favourite piano men, The Piano Men is an exploration into historical stories of women pianists and my own experiences as a woman in the music industry. Sing us a song, you’re the piano man… I am sure they are here somewhere – the piano women.
It all begins with my dad who is my amazing and inspiring piano teacher. He has been since I was little. Is this the connection that led me to seek out other male pianists as I grew up? Or were there other factors at play? I was in my late twenties before I discovered my first inspiring female pianist and it was by accident! Come and hear my story of the men I have aspired to be like and the women I had to search to find.
I am very excited to be bringing this show home, after a successful run in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and to be performing it in such stunning settings!
