Brooks Williams & Hans Theessink

Steady Rollin' Blues 2018

Brooks Williams and Hans Theessink, two giants of the blues, came together for a tour in the UK in May 2018. The two met for the first time in Dallas, Texas back in the 1990s when performing at the iconic Uncle Calvin's Anniversary Concerts. They share a love for the old songs; for Mississippi John Hurt, Doc Watson, Leadbelly and Blind Willie McTell; for Piedmont fingerpicking and bottleneck slide. Both Hans and Brooks have recorded numerous albums and their tour schedule would make a run-of-the-mill road dog feel faint.
