Brendan Kavanagh The Accordion Playing Police Man
It’s not every day you see a talented policeman like the passers-by in London saw that day. But ofcourse, this wasn’t just any “policeman”. The accordion-playing officer was in fact the piano playing maestro Brendan Kavanagh from Ireland.
Who Is Brendan Kavanagh?
Brendan Kavanagh is a piano and piano accordion player from London of Irish descent. He works as a piano teacher and performer and runs a very popular channel on Youtube with more than 1.2 million followers. Here he is again but with the roles reversed. This time Brendan plays boogie woogie to an armed police officer on a public piano.
Kavanagh, or “Dr. K”, as he calls himself, mostly performs in open venues with public pianos like London Central Station. While he specializes in Boogie Woogie, he mixes it with classical, jazz, rock’n’roll, and many different other genres. In the video below, you can see the heartwarming moment a little girl dressed in yellow shows up to dance alongside the pianist in the middle of a shopping center.
