Brooks Williams with special guest Jack Blackman
- Wadsworth Commuity Centre - Doors 6:45
On Friday June 14th, we welcome Brooks Williams, American acoustic guitarist and singer-songwriter, whose style combines roots, jazz, blues, classical, and folk.
Brooks hails from Statesboro, Georgia, the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell. Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, he is a talented finger-picker and a stunning slide guitarist. Plus, “he has a beautiful voice,” says Americana UK, “that you just melt into.” Not one easy to pigeon-hole, Brooks' music is at the crossroads of country-blues and soulful Americana.
His massive repertoire spans classic roots and blues, with compelling covers from the likes of Bessie Smith, and Memphis Slim. Williams’ original songs are typically sophisticated musically, and yet sound immediately familiar - a sign of a skilled songwriter and are rich in blues poignancy.
Brooks Williams has worked stages worldwide for close to thirty years, touring constantly in the US, Canada, UK and Europe and toured with many musicians over the years including Boo Hewerdine and Steve Tilston. This is the chance to see Brooks in an intimate gig at Wadsworth.
Guest support on the night is Jack Blackman who is no stranger to blues and folk. Jack is fast developing into one the most accomplished and exciting young performers on the roots scene today. He has performed his songs all across the country and as far as the Mississippi Delta. Jack has received accolades from Martin Simpson who described him as “a brilliant young gitarist.”
