August 7th - Brooks Williams at The Roadhouse Concerts at Savannah's

The Roadhouse Concerts at Savannah's at the Lake Welcome Center presents:

Brooks Williams


Brooks Williams is a blues singing, guitar picking, bottleneck slide playing certified road warrior who has toured continuously for over twenty-one years. His unique combination of traditional and original music inspired Dirty Linen magazine to call Brooks Williams one of "America's musical treasures." His guitar skills won him a place on the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists list, in company with the likes of Michael Hedges, Chet Atkins, Leo Kottke, Doc Watson, and David Bromberg, to name a few.

A native of Statesboro, Georgia (the same Statesboro as Willie McTell’s Statesboro Blues), Brooks has played stages throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom and, most recently, Istanbul, Turkey. He has gigged with Taj Mahal, John Hammond, David Bromberg, Maria Muldaur, Chris Smither, Leo Kottke, and Rory Block, and performed the Trowbridge Festival, the Guitar Stars Festival, the Marlborough Jazz Festival, the Champlain Valley Festival, and New Bedford’s Summerfest. Brooks Williams has released more than 16 albums on labels like Signature Sounds, Green Linnet Records, Red Guitar Blue Music, and Solid Air Records. The Time I Spend With You, 2008’s tour-de-force, went to #3 on the FOLKDJ charts (with three top ten singles, including the Mississippi Fred McDowell standard, 61 Highway) and remained on the charts for six months.

Other ground breaking titles in Williams' extensive discography include the best-selling roots/blues Knife Edge (1996), produced by Colin Linden, the award-winning instrumental Guitar Player (2005), which made the 100 Greatest Acoustic Guitar Albums list, and his acoustic gem Blues and Ballads (2006). Brooks Williams has been praised by the likes of The Boston Globe, Acoustic Guitar, Blues In Britain, and Guitar Player. He has appeared on World Café, The BBC, and All Things Considered, and his recordings are favorites on roots and blues radio programs, as well as XM Satellite Radio. His innovative guitar sound-bytes can be heard in between segments on National Public Radio and on Public Television.

As one of the world’s premier acoustic guitarists and singers, Brooks Williams continues to tour worldwide, every night delivering the deepest and most intense interpretations of everything from early blues songs to his recent original compositions. He is quite simply one of the most entertaining and engaging performers on the circuit today. From coast-to-coast, country-to-country, Williams and his guitars roll and tumble like nobody’s business.
