Jamie Cullum meets Chas and Dave!
Added 2014-01-05 11:37:06

In the second episode of his series on BBC Radio 4 - Piano Pilgrimage - jazz pianist Jamie Cullum uncovers the central role pianos have played in our communities in the past, and demonstrates the instrument's continued importance in many people's lives today.

The pilgrimage eventually takes Jamie and his rescued old piano to a London pub to meet Chas and Dave. The three of them discuss the instrument's contribution to pub culture, before Jamie joins the Rockney duo for a crowd-pleasing sing-a-long around the piano.

The episode goes out at 10.30 next Saturday morning and will be available from the BBC iPlayer here. More...
