We hear songs and read stories about “This Old House,” and nostalgia grips our hearts. Many are based in true family history.
Two photos and an MP3 file will tell you a bit about the history of an old, but wonderful piano in our family.
The music was supposed to be a recording with my granddaughter, Kaelah, playing. She is the great granddaughter of Travis Finch, who chose to pass the piano on to Kaelah’s mother. This particular version of “Banjo” is by Gottschalk–a professional pianist. I asked Kaelah’s younger sister to record Kaelah’s music, but she sent this instead. To the untrained ear (mine), they sound the same.
