Conrad Oberg: 12-year-old musician


I was searching that Vince Taylor video Moz has been playing before the shows and found this video in the process. The story of Conrad Oberg is amazing and as you can see from the video, he is incredibly talented:

here's what it says about him on youtube:

Conrad Oberg, self taught visually impaired musician, performs "Whole Lotta Shakin" at "Ground Zero Blues Club" owned by Morgan Freeman and his business partner Bill Luckett. Performance was filmed in April, 2006 at Juke Joint Festival in Clarksdale, Mississippi. Band's YouTube account maintained by Conrad's Dad, rhythmless guitarist, and world's most underpaid roadie, Michael Oberg.

At age two, Conrad taught himself to play the piano, and again taught himself the guitar at age ten. Conrad has been performing solo live performances since he was four years-old, and has been fortunate enough to meet and/or perform with some of the greats of the entertainment industry.
