YASMIN WILLIAMS-NPR Featured Finger-Style Guitarist

Posted by UnisonArtsCenter

Yasmin Williams is an acoustic fingerstyle guitarist with an unorthodox, modern style of playing. She utilizes various techniques including alternate tunings, percussive hits, and lap tapping in her music to great effect. Among many accolades, she was a finalist in the Rolling Stones Young Gun guitar competition and was the Grand prize winner of New York University's Ultra Violet Live talent show. She was recently featured on NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday show. “Perhaps not since the arrival of Michael Hedges has there been such a bold acoustic innovator. Remember her name: Yasmin Williams has arrived.” - Pete Brown, Vintage Guitar Magazine
