    Yann is a song writer who is very influenced by Eddi Reader who celebrates Robert Burns by singing his poems.

    Yann wants to do the same with WB Yeats whom he regards as the greatest poet of all times.

    "Many of Yeats's poems lend themselves to song writing," he says.

    Yann plays the guitar and other instruments (mandolin, harmonica, etc) is very influenced by Scottish and Irish music (he used to live in Scotland).
