When Karen Solicito was walking into Stop & Shop today, she heard Eastern European music. She thought the store was supporting Ukraine.
On her way out, she spotted the source: a young musician, playing in the parking lot. He had a tip jar, and a sign with his Venmo: @London-Radu.
Every little bit helps.
Thanks for posting, Dan 💕
We saw him yesterday, too. The music was beautiful. And we left him e tip
I believe this is a Scam- maybe 6 months ago it was a husband and wife with a baby- exact same music- Google it
I like these ‘purposeful’ Pics-of-the-Day. They are ‘two-fers’. Each generates…
AWARENESS of WESTPORT’s BEAUTY & DIVERSITY.
…as well as…
GOOD in the WORLD.
Keep up the excellent work, Dan!!!
Thanks, Kathleen, for pointing this out.
Here’s what I discovered.
These videos are pretty fun to watch and find out about. Apparently, this is a scam that has made its way across the country — fake string players in shopping mall or grocery store parking lots.
They play without talking while a sign almost identical to the one in the picture above begs for money. The message almost always blesses God so as to tug on your heart strings even a little more.
Unless you play a string instrument yourself, you won’t really be able to tell.
