David Allen Welsh..


David Allen Welsh is 50 years old and has been on the streets and shelters since he was 6 years old. He is 50 years old now and bought a second-hand piano from a thrift shop and plays for the people of Vancouver...He has never had a lesson and doesn't read any music..he just likes to play whats in his head..AMAZING! 



Maynard sits and listens in Second Hand Solutions, the second-hand shop where Welsh plays. 

Welsh has never had a lesson, and doesn't read music. "I don't know how to play music, but I like what I hear in my head," he told KATU

In this video, Welsh plays a composition called "Aerial Aquatas," which he refers to as "my 'Amazing Grace.' "
