GET A CHANCE TO WIN JAMIE'S YAMAHA PIANO

GET A CHANCE TO WIN JAMIE'S YAMAHA PIANO

Jamie has teamed up with Yamaha Pianos to find a new home for his beloved grand piano. Jamie will be donating his personal piano to one deserving school/charity/youth organisation/community centre/choir some-where in the UK or Republic of Ireland.

To get your hands on his famous piano, all you have to do is nominate an organisation where this priceless instrument will help to make a difference and inspire.

Jamie and his C7(one of Yamaha's most popular pianos, often found in re-cording studios and music venues across the world) have been through a lot together. Jamie has recorded albums and toured with it, climbed on it, crawled underneath it and jumped from it.

The singer-songwriter and celebrated musician said, “This piano has ac-companied me through some of the most important parts of my life in the last 10 years. I have written songs on it, I have recorded albums with it, I have toured the world with it. It may have fallen in the mud at Glastonbury festival, it may have been used as a drinks table on numerous occasions but it has also been on stage at the Royal Albert Hall and was the piano I wrote Gran Torino on. I am thrilled to be able to give it to a worthy home. This grand piano is a mighty beast of an instrument stuffed full of memories that will hopefully inspire someone else to play and create.”

The piano will be on display from 15th October at Yamaha Music London on Wardour Street and then Camden’s Roundhouse from 20th October, where fans and members of the public will get a chance to play it. The piano will also be used by young musicians from the Roundhouse’s Creative Youth charity, where they will be learning how to write music.

To enter all you have to do is submit a funny/creative/heartfelt reason why you should win the piano at jamiecullum.com. Videos can be uploaded via YouTube, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #WinJamiesYamahaPiano

Five finalists will be selected and voted for by fans - the entry with the highest votes will win Jamie’s piano.
