'Mrs Findlay's Broadwood Square Piano'

The Lyric Feature on RTE Lyric FM - 7pm, Friday March 10th 2017


Bought in 1977 on a whim for fifty pounds in Ballycastle, Mrs. Findlay’s Broadwood Square Piano, a bockedy old instrument, unearths a story of forbidden romance in Glasgow, a legal battle over a dowry and the reunification of two families.

As its strings and pedals are restored by Michael Hannon so too is the history of a family and airing of a sonata that had lain dormant for years.

An Ocarina production for RTÉ Lyric FM, funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland from the Television Licence Fee.

Presenter/Producer: Angie Mezzetti

Sound Production: Patrick Wall


When Mrs. Findlay’s Broadwood Square Piano was restored by Mike Hannon so too were the intriguing stories of the people it met along the way as Angie Mezzetti discovers.
