[VIDEO] Check Out This Classically Trained Street Pianist in Union Square

23-year-old Washington Heights resident Kevin Shoemaker is a classically trained pianist and composer who often busks in public for some extra cash and fun. Though when Shoemaker busks, he needs to bring his 500-pound piano with him.

In this video captured by YouTube uploader Piano Around the World, watch as Shoemaker plays some George Gerswin in Union Square.

I met Kevin on the street in NYC and I asked him to play a song for me. This is one of Gershwins 3 Preludes for solo piano.
