Fans of "other-worldly" acoustic guitar play will want to keep your eyes and ears peeled for the new & innovative, Los Angeles bred YMT GUITAR TRIO.


The YMT Guitar Trio is a collaboration of guitarists Jeff Young, Scott Morris and Steven Thachuk. Each member brings years of diverse musical experience to the group. Performing music as varied as their individual backgrounds, their repertoire includes original works as well as Brazilian, Miles Davis, Michael Jackson, Radiohead, Zappa & Led Zeppelin - to name a few. Their debut concert tour takes them to venues and festivals throughout Europe and the United States beginning July 2009.
