Picture of the Week ~ Durham Street Piano

 Tom Merrigan - Durham Street Piano 102

This week’s photo was taken at the 2nd Annual “Marry Durham” celebration held this past Saturday on Rigsbee Avenue in downtown Durham. The event is a celebration of the communities’ commitment to the Bull City and featured a parade, live music, and great food from several local food trucks. Pictured above is Tom Merrigan the “Durham Street Piano” player entertaining the crowd gathered in front of Fullsteam Brewery with one of his fun boogie-woogie tunes.  Tom was joined by a few of  my friends from the Bulltown Strutters Kevin (on snare) and Todd (Sousaphone).

Check out the video below to learn more about Tom and his story behind making the Durham Street Piano Project a reality.
