|Greg Mullinax proudly answers questions about his 1893|
Wm. Knabe concert grand piano
Whether it's ragtime or Mozart, the sound radiating from this 100+ year old piano simply cannot be duplicated by a newer model. Not to mention, the appearance and styling are unrivaled as well. Truly a one of a kind found right here in Bates County.
Just yesterday, Peggy Buhr and others from the Bates County Museum paid a visit to Mullinax Funeral home to see and hear the 1893 Wm. Knabe & Co grand piano on display.
The stately concert piano was discovered recently in Bates County- the previous owner wished it to be restored to its former glory. Greg Mullinax has done just that, making it a permanent fixture at the funeral home. And yes, it is 100% functional and can be used as part of services held in the chapel.
In fact, during the visit yesterday, Mullinax treated those present with "Hallelujah" and Pachelbel's Canon in D on the solid Mahogany keepsake.
In talking to Greg Mullinax today, he said the public is invited to stop by (time permitting of course) for a 'mini concert'... and if you're able, feel free to tickle the ivories yourself.
