David Yard has been performing in Santa Fe for the past 20 years. His playing has been described as beautiful, lyrical, brilliant, and world class. What separates him from other guitar players is the scope of his repertoire; as an excellent sight reader he is able to play for extended periods of time without repetition. David’s repertory encompasses music from the renaissance to the contemporary; including Bach, Scarlatti, Sor, Guilliani, Tarrega and Ponce Carlavero. He also enjoys playing jazz as well as his own varied compositions.

David played at our wedding many years ago. He was the only music he had and his performance on the guitar was magical. I would never look back and want to change a thing. He truly is very gifted and wonderful. Carla Hauser, 2015
