When leaving work today I saw the Piano Across America guy playing in Union Square. Here’s how he describes himself on his blog:
My name is Dotan Negrin and I’m Traveling Across America, Playing my Upright Piano on the Streets of America’s Finest Cities. I hope to Inspire and bring people together through the power of Music. Here is how my story begins.
I think I came across his blog through someone at work, and I wish I had known about it sooner so I could have convinced friends from around the country to find him when he was in their city.
I just missed him when I was in Madison, WI recently and I’m glad I got to see him play (with a dog and a little girl) today and donate a few dollars. I really suggest reading through some of his previous blog entries and hunting him down if you live in NYC (he seems to go to Union and Washington Squares pretty often).
