When we published our What’s Going on in Los Angeles this Week, we left out a fairly new artist to the music scene, Japanese guitar prodigy, Yuto Miyazawa, playing at the Knitting Factory on Thursday.
Though only 9 years old, Yuto has an impressive list of accomplishments in the music business already. In 2008, Miyazawa was named “The Youngest Professional Guitarist” by the Guinness Book of World Records, he has played with the likes of Les Paul and G.E. Smith, and has performed at Madison Square Garden and the Gathering of the Vibes this summer.
For the money, this may be the best bet for the weekend, so if you’re able to catch him live, you better before the cost starts to rise and he’s playing larger venues. If you cannot get to the Knitting Factory this week, check out the videos including his performance on the Ellen Degeneres show, playing Ozzy Ozbourne’s Crazy Train or any of Yuto Miyazawa’s videos on YouTube.
