The Art Of Reinvention


Liona Boyd is mining new artistic territory – as a children’s book author!

There is also an audiobook read by her that includes 11 short guitar pieces.

And when she last joined us at ideacity, she played and spoke about the evolution of her plucking style – a change, she explained, forced upon her because of a diagnosis of musician’s focal dystonia.
