The Pop-up Piano

Being something of a boffin as well as a musician, Leigh Delamere has designed and built his own pop-up-upright piano.  Often imitated, but never matched, this construction has withstood the close scrutiny of many bitter rival pianists, and utilises the latest digital modelling technology combined with classic ham-fisted British amateur DIY plywood work.

After years of touring with the Gordanos, as well as with Rogue Theatre and the Ragged Trousered Philanthropists, this much-loved piece of rock’n’roll furniture certainly looks the part – adding to the sense of occasion even before a note is played.
