BROOKS WILLIAMS

Brooks Williams

 SUNDAY APRIL 19TH 4:00

$15 ADVANCED, $20 AT THE DOOR

“I’ve known Brooks for many years. He’s a lovely player, a lovely singer, and a great writer and a lovely man. The real thing” Martin Simpson

“Pan-Americana Roots ‘n Blues, doused in Moonshine alt-Billy and delicious Dixie” Net Rhythms

Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, Brooks Williams is one of the most versatile and entertaining performers on the acoustic roots music scene today. From Statesboro Georgia USA, he is a proverbial triple threat: a fiery guitarist, a smooth-as-silk vocalist, and stunning songwriter. In February 2014 he was nominated best male vocalist by the UK’s folk roots mavens, Spiral Earth.

Genre Defying Guitarist Singer Songwriter

Brooks Williams is a genre defying guitarist singer songwriter. It’s roots. It’s acoustic. He walks the line between blues and Americana, but there’s a bit of jazz and rockabilly thrown in for good measure. Imagine Doc Watson, Willie Nelson, Lonnie Johnson and Blind Boy Fuller sitting in a bar having a jam – and you’re just about there!

He’s he proverbial triple threat: playing a fiery guitar, commanding a rich and silky voice, and writing hook-laden songs. He is one of the most diverse and entertaining performers on the acoustic roots music scene and is ranked one of the world’s Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists.

The San Antonio Light says that Williams is a “fret monster who has to be seen to be believed!” For 25 years he has been wowing audiences worldwide, every night delivering the deepest and most intense interpretations of everything from early blues to inventive covers to his own recent original compositions. Dirty Linen calls him one of “America’s musical treasures.”

Grammy award winning record producer Jim Rooney and Nashville Hall of Fame songwriter Pat Alger will share a musical evening along with multi instrumentalist and songwriter Chris Brashear, long a member of Robin & Linda Williams “Fine Group,” Sunday, May 31, 8pm, at the Tunbridge Town Hall.

 Jim and Pat cemented their friendship and working relationship in Nashville. Jim was one of the first producers in Nashville to record Pat’s songs, starting with Nanci Griffith’s “Once In A Very Blue Moon.” That was followed by “Goin’ Gone,” which brought Pat to the attention of Kathy Mattea, who had her first #1 record with “Goin’ Gone.” Jim and Allen Reynolds had just signed up Pat to their new publishing company, Forerunner Music, and this was the start of an incredible string of #1’s, including “She Came From Ft. Worth” (Kathy Mattea), “Small Town Saturday Night” (Hal Ketchum), “The Thunder Rolls”, “Unanswered Prayers”, “That Summer”, & “What She’s Doing Now” (Garth Brooks) and “Like We Never Had A Broken Heart.” (Trisha Yearwood).

 In the course of the evening Jim, Pat and Chris will trade songs and stories which will cover their musical journeys. Jim and Pat played for many years as part of the Woodstock Mountains Revue. Jim has produced three albums on Pat and one on Chris, in addition to countless albums by the likes of Nanci Griffith, John Prine, Iris DeMent, Hal Ketchum, andTom Paxton It promises to be a memorable, not-to-be-missed event.
