It all started with a piano roll....
Each box was titled with an old tune from yesteryear. When I opened the box there sat a neatly rolled tube of music that looks as though it hasn't been disturbed for years. When I pulled the roll out of the box, I could read the lyrics which were printed along the side of the punched paper. At first they didn't make sense, but then I realized I needed to read it from down to up rather than up to down.
I had half the piano roll unrolled in the shop as I continued to scroll up to read the intriguing lyrics of a song I had never heard of before. 'Gone is the romance that was.....' Why wouldn't I want to read more? Sold on the idea, I bought 5 of these precious pieces of history.
And the mockingbirds are singing as........' Don't you wonder what the mockingbirds were singing about? Aren't you intrigued to know how the story ends? We started our market remodel with a piano roll as our inspiration for Feather Your Nest and it turned out so sweetly, but it won't end there. What would you do with an old piano roll?
