Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, Williams is a mean finger-picker and a stunning slide guitarist. Plus, “he has a beautiful voice,” says AmericanaUK, “that you just melt into.”
Not one easy to pigeon-hole, Williams’ music is the love-child of country-blues and soulful Americana.
His massive repertoire spans classic roots and blues,” Trouble In Mind”, “Backwater Blues” and “Mother Earth”, as well as compelling covers from the likes of Dave Alvin, Bessie Smith and Mose Allison. His own songs are thoroughly alive with clearly-drawn ironic characters, like Frank Delandry and Evel Knievel, and rich in blues pathos.
Brooks Williams has worked stages worldwide for over twenty-five years, touring constantly in the US, UK and Europe…don’t miss this chance to see such an immense talent in a great venue like the Stoltz!
