Andrew James Johnson, 42, has set up a piano on the banks of the lake to play his new single, entitled ‘La Lunga Notte’.

He recently performed at the Meraki Festival on Sunday, August 12 with the St Albans Symphony Orchestra, and has appeared on Classic FM.

Andrew, who lives near the King Harry Pub, said: “Today we’re doing my new single that I released last week. The piano is borrowed from Ye Olde Fighting Cocks.

“I am syncing the track with the piano so just trying to capture the beauty of the park and nature with the lake and the trees, and it’s just a perfect spot.”

Andrew said: “I’m going to put it on YouTube. I’m releasing a single every month at the moment.”
