Guitarist, Song Wrangler, Roots Music Connoisseur
“Surely one of the finest acoustic musicians in the UK, not only a virtuoso guitarist and master of folk roots stylings but possessing a voice like chocolate.” (Kontra Gigs)
Statesboro, Georgia-born, Cambridge, England-based guitarist singer and songwriter Brooks Williams is admired by both listeners and fellow musicians alike. With over 33 recordings, plus countless concert and festival appearances, he has been a leading light on the roots acoustic music scene for over three decades.
He moves effortlessly between country, blues and folk. WUMB-FM Boston names Williams one of their Top 100 All-Time Artists and he's listed in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists.
RnR writes, Williams is a "guitarist in possession of rich vocal powers and a talent for lyrical imagery, his songs are imbued with uplifting generosity" (Read Full RnR Interview, Road Dog).
Brooks' duos - one with the amazing fiddler Aaron Catlow and the other with ace clawhammer banjoist Dan Walsh - are crowd favourites as well. Read all about Brooks & Aaron and Brooks & Dan.
Brooks Williams, writes Fatea, is “quite simply one of the most unassuming, natural performers on the circuit, and his easy, relaxed manner conceals the greatest level of true expertise.”
