Great Video! Blind teenager Conrad Oberg plays Woodstock anniversary concert

Conrad Oberg of Woodstock, New York, is a 15-year-old musician who is blind. Oberg was the opening act at the Woodstock anniversary concert on August 15, 2009. Oberg, who taught himself to play guitar after listening to Jimi Hendrix, opened the concert with his idol's version of the Star Spangled Banner. He is also a self-taught pianist.

This is the first time I've heard of this kid. He was born blind and taught himself to play piano and guitar. He's pretty amazing!
