Homeless Does Not Mean Talentless

Dylan Henry recorded a homeless man playing “Come Sail Away” on a piano in Sarasota, Florida. The slightly out of tune piano was on public display as a project of the Sarasota Keys Piano Project from the Arts and Cultural Alliance. It was decorated by artist Viktorija Bulava.

You have to wonder how long it's been since he's had a chance to play. Henry met the man again the next day, and found out his name is Donald Gould. In an interview Gould, we find out he played a clarinet in the Marine Corps, then learned many other instruments in college. He worked in the building trades, and has been unemployed since the crash of 2008.

Since this video was recorded last week, Gould has had a Facebook page set up for him. -via Boing Boing
