Yasmin Williams at The Drake



The Drake (44 North Pleasant Street)

$20 Adv / $25 Door
Doors open at 7 pm

A typical Yasmin Williams show finds her seated onstage with her unique harp guitar stretched flat across her lap tapping the fretboard with her left hand while her right plucks a kalimba resting on the guitar’s body. Her feet keep the rhythm in tap shoes. Her virtuoso level playing is impressive but she is not showing off. The music feels intuitive and exploratory, generating melodies that are beautiful and friendly yet wonderfully strange. She seems to have a deep curiosity about the unheard sounds that might still be hiding inside her acoustic guitar.
