Friday Nite Live: Ryu Yokoo

Stop by The Carrot on Friday, October 11th at 7:30 pm for Friday Nite Live!

$5 cover charge.

Artist: Ryu Yokoo

Ryu Yokoo was born in Osaka City, Japan and started playing guitar as a young child. Soon he and his friends were singing songs of the Beatles and other groups, before even understanding the English lyrics.

While still living in Japan, Ryu graduated from university with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education, majoring in English Language and Literature. He made several trips to Canada before settling permanently in 2000. He first lived in Ottawa, Ontario and Dartmouth, Nova Scotia before eventually moving to Edmonton.

Ryu’s love of music continued, and he was soon enrolled in MacEwan University’s Music Program, graduating with honours from the performance major. Over the next few years he worked at various local music schools before establishing his own studio, teaching guitar, bass, ukulele and harmonica. Check out the event here!
