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.
