Join us for a virtual benefit concert with acoustic fingerstyle guitarist Yasmin Williams. With a compositional style that’s relaxing as well as inventive, Yasmin specializes in lap tapping, a technique that involves playing the guitar with both hands over the fretboard as it rests face-up on the player’s lap.
Incorporating tapped harmonics, bowing, percussive strikes, alternative tunings, and even tap shoes into her sound, she landed on the Billboard Heatseekers chart with her debut album, 2018’s Unwind. She has also been featured on NPR and has performed at prestigious venues such as the Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center. Her second album, Urban Driftwood, will be released on January 29th, 2021.
