Brooks Williams will be performing at the Original Congregational Church in Wrentham at 7:30 PM, Saturday, Oct. 21. Brooks is an American acoustic guitarist and singer/songwriter. His style combines roots, jazz, blues, blues, classical, and folk.
He hails from Statesboro, Georgia, the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell. Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, he’s a mean finger-picker and a stunning slide guitarist. Plus, he has a beautiful voice. Brook’s music is the love-child of country-blues and soulful Americana. Audiences are often heard asking, how can one guitar and one voice sound like a full band? Williams has to be seen and heard to be believed.
His massive repertoire spans classic roots and blues, as well as compelling covers from the likes of Dave Alvin, Buddy Miller and Mose Allison. His own songs are thoroughly alive with clearly-drawn ironic characters, like Evil Knievel.
Brooks Williams has worked stages worldwide for over twenty-five years, touring constantly in the U.S., U.K., and Europe. His performance here will follow a very full schedule in the U.K. and Portugal.
