What's the difference between a child prodigy turned internationally acclaimed virtuoso, and a busker at L'Enfant Metro Station? Apparently nothing on one morning in January. Check out this news article to read the story.

The 'Saw Lady', who is a NYC subway musician, has an interesting retort to that article from her unique point of view of busking:

Personally I think the whole "experiment" was a publicity stunt - hey, it got everybody talking about Bell, even people who don't follow classical music, like me :)
but I like buskers. I always stop and applaud.
