Past Event Sound Series: Yasmin Williams

Yasmin Williams sits on a red chair in front of a blue background with her guitar on her lap. She is wearing a flowery shirt and pants.

We welcome the prodigiously gifted guitarist and songwriter, Yasmin Williams, to our intimate theater. Williams, who began playing guitar in eighth grade after she beat the video game Guitar Hero 2 on expert level, has quickly crafted a singular and unique sound through her innovative approach to fingerstyle and dulcimer traditions. Her 2021 release Urban Driftwood has received wide critical praise, including this mention in a recent Rolling Stone review: “When 24-year-old instrumentalist Yasmin Williams plays guitar, she conjures new possibilities and stories from the instrument.” And according to fellow recording artist and songwriter Valerie June, “As a multi-instrumentalist, her music fearlessly leads listeners through soundscapes and dimensions that reharmonize, recenter, and ground us during these challenging times.”

  • Yasmin Williams performance begins at 8 p.m.
  • Doors open at 7 p.m.
