BOULDER, Colo. — Boulder High senior Jack Gaffney painted his first piano a couple of years ago, spattering a 1956 spinet piano that he found on Craigslist with multiple colors beforehand, painting the keys.
A musician, he used the lightweight piano — tuned and refurbished by his piano technician, Ryan Elison — to perform on Pearl Street Mall over the past three summers.
“I love performing on Pearl Street Mall,” he said. “It might be my favorite place to play.”
