West Central porch pianist video goes viral

Posted By on Tue, Dec 10, 2013 at 10:48 AM

Local filmmaker and musician Ryan Tucker was driving along Boone in August 2011 when he spotted a woman playing a dilapidated piano on a run-down porch. In his description: “I asked if it was okay to record her and she didn’t even acknowledge me.”

The video made it to the front page of Reddit this week, spurring speculation about who she is and what kind of musical training she may or may not have. Plenty of commenters have cynically assumed drug use, but so far no one seems to have any real information.

Does anyone know more about the actual story? People on Reddit identified the house, 1517 W. Boone, and property photos from the Spokane County Assessor do show a piano on the porch.
