We were excited to have the talented Yvette Young all the way from California perform a set and answer questions for our guitar group recently. Yvette has made a name for herself as a unique songwriter and respected guitarist. She has toured all over the world and is endorsed by Strandberg Guitarworks and EMG Pickups. Here are some words she had to say about the importance of guitar in her life;

I took up guitar to do something for myself. I guess a lot of people don’t know but I actually taught myself guitar in a hospital. I was really sick and I was stuck there for like a year and I wanted a way to vent my emotions. I was really depressed at the time so a lot of my lyrics were real bleak but I firmly maintain that if I didn’t have guitar or song writing as an out let I would probably not be here today”I took up guitar to do something for myself.

The next final project including performance and visual arts viewing is on 13th December at St Andrews in the square. We encourage all to come and see the fabulous achievements of the previous 10 weeks.
