Brooks Williams & Vera van Heeringen


Brooks Williams & Vera van Heeringen present ‘Song Roots’, a night of songs, stories, vocal harmonies, guitar and mandolin. Audiences will be treated to duets as well as solos by two masters of roots music songwriting.

Vera van Heeringen, originally from The Netherlands, is a highly acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. She was part of the brilliantly comedic New Rope String Band for 5 years. In recent years Vera has been performing with her own trio. Her emotionally astute songwriting is underpinned with an understated rich instrumental craft on guitar.

Brooks Williams, originally from the USA, is a guitarist-singer-songwriter creating acoustic music from the confluence of country, blues and folk. A leading light in acoustic music, he has recorded over 30 albums in his extensive career. A voice like chocolate, a jaw-dropping guitar sound and an impressive collection of songs, Brooks is wholly original.
