traveling duke

Duke Special is an amazing artist. I first encountered him when I went to Ireland for an internship a few years ago. I met this really cool guy and he took me to a park where Duke was playing on a small piano on wheels. He started playing just with his piano and people started to gather as the word spread around his hometown of Belfast, Ireland. He then got up and took his piano to his next stop in the middle of a street, he moved four or five times playing a different song at each spot and gaining followers as he moved. He interacted with fans as he moved from spot to spot and we followed him all the way until he ended up at a local music hall where he completed his set on a larger grande piano. I’ll never forget his voice and his originality. Take a listen to this guy–“Freewheel” by Duke Special. c.
