Dewey Knight, a lifelong Oxonian, recently led a tour full of World Championship Old-Time Piano Playing fans around the city of Oxford.
The group toured everything from The Square to Saint Peter’s Cemetery. William Faulkner’s historic home, Rowan Oak was the stopping place of the bus tour. The piano fans then took a walking excursion of Faulkner’s house which includes an old chickering piano from Boston.
Sadly, the piano was out of tune and musicians weren’t able to play.
The fun continued this afternoon with a music workshop at three and a New Rag and Piano Duet contest at 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. Tonight, pianists will take turns playing at Locals, Frank & Marlee’s and the Shelter at 8:00 p.m.
