Yasmin Williams (US) at Musikhuset København

Unorthodox style and rich harmonies from young guitar talent

With her unorthodox style and rich, harmonious guitar arrangements, the young guitar talent Yasmin Williams breaks with the American folk tradition, conjuring new stories and possibilities from the instrument.

Note: This concert takes place in Musikhuset København

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. She grew up in northern Virginia where various genres of music from smooth jazz to hip-hop flowed from the radio. She was introduced to the guitar after playing the video game Guitar Hero 2 and taught herself how to play the guitar by ear. After a few years of playing the electric guitar, she taught herself how to play the bass guitar, 12 string guitar, and classical guitar before eventually deciding to switch her focus to the acoustic guitar because of the instrument’s versatility. While in high school, she released her first EP Serendipity in 2012, which she recorded and mixed herself. 

With the guitar often on her lap, Williams creates extremely rich and harmonious guitar arrangements and breaks with the American folk tradition, conjuring new stories and possibilities from the instrument. Yasmin Williams released her second solo album “Urban Driftwood” last year, which has received critical acclaim from numerous major publications including The New York Times, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, The Washington Post, NPR Music and more, and which has made The New York Times calling her “one of the country’s most imaginative young solo guitarists”. We can’t wait to present Yasmin Williams in Musikhuset this September.
