SPRING LAKE, Mich.--Enjoy live music by folk fingerstyle guitarist David Youngman at Spring Lake District Library Sunday, Feb. 16 as part of the  library’s free Music by the Fireplace concert series.

Youngman will be performing  from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Youngman uses unconventional techniques on the guitar such as drumming on the body of the guitar, two- hand tapping on the neck, and extensive use of harmonics to create the illusion of a full band coming out of one guitar. He incorporates elements of jazz, bluegrass, pop, celtic, funk, and classical genres in his blend of traditional and contemporary music.

Youngman was the winner of the 2013 Fretboard Festival Performance Contest and runner up at the 2013 Canadian Guitar Festival, where he competed with world renowned guitarists.  He is a guitar instructor at Spring Arbor University. Youngman has recorded two solo guitar albums and recently released a jazz folk album with saxophonist Derek Brown. To sample Youngman’s music visit his website at www.davidyoungmanmusic.com
