Guitarist, Song Wrangler, Roots Music Connoisseur

"A lovely player, a lovely singer and a great writer. Brooks Williams is the real thing." (Martin Simpson)

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).

In addition to his legendary solo acoustic concerts, Brooks' duo with fiery fiddler Aaron Catlow is a crowd favourite as well. They have toured every year since 2021 and have recorded three CDs in that time, Greens And Blues, Ready For The Times and Ghost Owl. Read all about Brooks & Aaron.

Williams also collaborated with the late-great Rab Noakes on his Should We Tell Him: Songs By Don Everly recording. What turned out to be Noakes' last recording is a corker! And, says Folk Radio UK, "is a genuine labour of love that should be embraced by fans of Noakes, Williams and The Everlys alike." Read all about Brooks, Rab & Don Everly.

Over the years other collaborations include Boo Hewerdine, Jim Henry, Dan Walsh, Sloan Wainwright, Hans Theessink, Sally Barker & Guy Davis.

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.”
