Awesome, bet if I was there I would have noticed it was good but would have just stopped at that thought and walked by as well.

Vancouver Transit allows buskers in certain areas, particularly at the end of the Seabus walkway. Most of them are average, some are downright amateur, but occasionally you get one that obviously has talent. You can't help but notice those ones.

Same here. I don't think I've ever heard a guy as talented as this guy play the violin. But, I do see from time to time a guy playing the violin at the Bryant Park station in Manhattan. Actually, I've seen two different guys, one old and one young. The old guy sucks. The younger guy (mid 30s) seems pretty good. I take note of what he's playing while he's in earshot but I've never stopped to listen. Maybe next time I will.

That was a great read, thank you for sharing. I'm definitely one to rush often when alone, in the city and with an objective. I've stayed a few times to listen to people play, but I wonder how many talented people I've ignored.

Update: I was at work reading this article, now that I can hear the vids I know I would have walked by, I can't even tell he's playing masterpieces lol... Guess I don't know my violin. Adorno would probably go on a murderous rampage if he saw this.
