Why Anna is not car free: Reason #1
This photo sucks. Anyone want to give me a new camera for Christmas??
The instruments that I played that night are as follows:
1 Accordion (approx. 20 lbs)
1 Digital Piano (approx. 40 lbs)
1 Set of Finger Cymbals
Various equipment including but not limited to: piano stand, music stand, pedals, wires of all shapes and sizes. Also included in the photo (which is a far cry from all the instruments that are used) are bass amp, bass, computer, computer keyboard, another stand, omnichord, autoharp…oy!
Now I know you’re all going to pipe up and say “get a Madsen!” or “get a Big Dummy, ya big dummy!”, but there is no way in hell that I would risk my precious musical intstruments by having them exposed to the elements and my clutzy tendencies. I’ve already broken my keyboard once, and it was just sitting innocently on it’s stand (a combination of pure ingenuity and a fair bit of magic got my baby working again).
So, while I love the idea of being car free and love riding my bike…I love playing wonderfully functional and in tune musical instruments more.
