Sylvin Pineau plays the piano beautifully. Hearing his music, someone
could never imagine that he ever suffered a terrible brain injury.
flying through a windshield back in the late eighties, Pineau has been
left permanently disabled by his accident. After losing his job with CN
Rail following the incident, Pineau moved to Belleville with his wife
and young daughter. A few years after the move, his daughter passed away
from a brain tumor, and his wife left him.
these blows that life has dealt him, Pineau carries on. A talented
pianist since his youth, he occupies his time by playing piano across
Belleville in numerous venues, often providing musical accompaniment to
food programs being run out of church basements.
His price? A free meal.
