A one-woman show…
The Piano Men is a show that takes a look at the inequalities between men and women in the music industry through some of my, Emma Knights’, favourite piano men songs. I will be sharing stories from my experiences incorporated with stories dating right back to Bach’s day. Sing us a song, you’re the piano man… I am sure they are here somewhere – the piano women.
It all begins with my dad who is my amazing and inspiring piano teacher. He has been since I was little. Is this the connection that led me to seek out other male pianists as I grew up? Or were there other factors at play? I was in my late twenties before I discovered my first inspiring female pianist and it was by accident! Come and hear my story of the men I have aspired to be like and the women I had to search to find. You will leave pondering the reasons for inequality and hopefully with some ideas to make changes for a better future.
I am debuting this one-woman show, my first ever solo show with me on vocals and keys, at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2018. The Piano Men includes songs from my favourite piano men; Ben Folds, Tim Minchin, Billy Joel and Elton John. It will also be the debut performance of my original song “Pianist Envy” which is bound to be a hit!
