Rock it man! Street pianist, 12, surprises a crowd of shoppers in Liverpool as he performs a series of ringing dance anthems from the 1990s
- Harrison Crane, 12, played a musical medley for Liverpool ONE shoppers
- Songs included Children, Blue (Da Ba Dee), Sandstorm and Seven Nation Army
- The boy musician has played the piano more than 10 times since 2018 in Liverpool ONE
- He even played keys in a young local band and for airport travelers
A talented boy pianist enchanted a crowd of shoppers in Liverpool while performing a series of folk songs from the nineties.
Images recently shared on social media show that 12-year-old Harrison Crane jumps on a red Liverpool ONE piano while the locals walk by and watch their own business.
He kicks off his musical medley with the dance track Children by Robert Miles from 1996, as a result of which half a dozen shoppers stop and listen.
Young Harrison then slides into the song Blue (Da Ba Dee) from Eiffel 65 in 1998, before switching to the 1999 Sandstorm by Finnish DJ Darude.
By then, the Harrison audience has grown, because some just watch while others tap their feet and some even start filming on their phones.
The boy then bursts into the Seven Nation Army of The White Stripes in 2003, before returning to Children for a grand finale.
Hammering the last notes of Elton John style, the general public of Liverpool ONE shoppers applauds and bursts in applause.

The boy pianist was just one of many local musicians who had the chance to busk last summer at Liverpool ONE’s Tickle The Ivories festival.
As he played the final notes, the general public of Liverpool ONE welcomed shoppers and burst into applause. Harrison, from Aughton, Lancashire, shyly thanked the improvised audience as he shuffled to his parents Jonathan (40) and Eleanor (39).
However, Harrison’s performance last September was not his first, who played in the mall twelve times since 2018.
Six months ago his father Jonathan uploaded a video to his YouTube account in which Harrison launched a similar medley for passers-by.
Lats-month a video was uploaded showing Harrison playing keyboards with a young band in a cover of The Killers’ Mr Brightside.
And in 2017, Harrison went to a public piano at Manchester Airport, where he surprised travelers with his rendition of I Giorni by Ludovico Einaudi.
