Statesboro, Georgia-born and now UK resident, Brooks Williams has not played Roaring Brook in years and we are so glad to have him back! Over 25 years of performing and having recorded 22 albums, he is earning media reviews that any artist could be proud of! Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists for his masterful fingerpicking and bottleneck slide playing, he is earning great marks for his vocals and songwriting too.
"Stirring up soulful Americana, full-on blues and tasty roots grooves, he really rocks."--Roots.
The Irish News says "Melodic virtuosity on the guitar that runs like liquid from his fingers."
"He's a lovely player, a lovely singer and a great writer. The real thing.”--Martin Simpson.
Enjoy Brooks' superb original songs and instrumentals, classic blues from Bessie Smith, Blind Willie McTell and Memphis Slim. Compelling covers of work by Dave Alvin, Buddy Miller and Mose Allison. Listen for "Statesboro Blues," "Mother Earth," and "Belfast Blues."
