On an island with no roads or motorized vehicles, people tend to leave household items in place or share them with island neighbors when it comes time to move. There’s a lot of jury-rigging, making do with 100-year-old equipment if it still works. So it was with an ancient but functional piano of that age, offered by our neighbor a quarter mile up the path.
Of course, it took a village to make the transfer. How lucky were we that our 19-year-old nephew happened to arrive this weekend with five fit friends? (less lucky for them…?) The old instrument is a solid ~7-800 pounds. This is a Sutton day that will go down in infamy, and song!
