'Piano Man' John Forde played a concert recently in Naas' old Dara Cinema in aid of the town's Main Street Food Bank.

John is a well-known face on the Naas music scene, as he used to own the now-closed record store Top Twenty.

With his 'Piano Man' show, he brings to the stage all of the great piano classics, including Rocket Man, My Life, Crocodile Rock, Goodnight Saigon, Candle in The Wind, and, of course, The Piano Man.

The food bank is an initiative of the Church on Main Street, which occupies the old Dara building. 

It began as a pilot project in December 2012, and since September 2013, the drop-in centre has operated every week in Naas.

According to organisers, an average of 93 individuals and families access the service for help every week.
