Guitarist in concert at The Space

Guitarist Michael Young will be in concert at 7 p.m. Friday, March 7, at The Space in New Richmond.

Young is a Minneapolis fingerstyle guitarist who plays both the six- and 12-string guitar with driving rhythm and groove

He is in his mid 20s, but don't let that fool you, according to music reviewers. There is an old soul behind his innovative and technically proficient fretwork, and Young carries his bouncy and energetic groove from powerful and compelling compositions to soulful ballads.

Moving from daunting and alarming to lighthearted and idiosyncratic instrumentals, Young takes advantage of the guitar's possibilities by combining standard and alternate tunings with a mix of slide guitar into his playing.

He has impressed audiences all over the country including appearances at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the legendary CBGB 313 Gallery in New York City, and the illustrious Knitting Factory also in New York City.

While primarily an instrumentalist, Michael also incorporates his warm singing voice into his sets.
