When you’re walking around Lansing and East Lansing this summer, one of the new attractions you’ll be seeing will be pianos. Not indoors, in entertainment venues where you might expect them, but outdoors, and they won’t be ordinary pianos, either. Each will have been decorated by a local artist. It’s all part of a new project from the Capital Area Blues Society called Keys in the Cities.
Current State speaks with Smitty Smith of the Capital Area Blues Society. You might also know Smitty as the organizer of the Pump House concerts and the annual Pumpstock music festival in East Lansing.
