Acoustic Roots - Brooks Williams on Saturday 2nd June 2018

We are delighted to welcome Brooks back to Acoustic Roots for his second solo appearance with us.

If country blues and Americana had a love-child it would be Brooks Williams, A mean finger-picker, a stunning slide guitarist and a singer with a voice, according to AmericanaUK -
“that you just melt into.”

fRoots says, “he really rocks!” Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists by Rolling Stone magazine, with twenty-two albums to his name and a vigorous touring schedule in the US, the UK and Europe, Brooks Williams is one of acoustic roots music’s guiding lights. Our regulars know how good he is from his previous visits with State Of The Union (Boo Hewerdine), Lightning Express and solo.

This evening is the finale of a busy day for Acoustic Roots as we have Chickenbone John with us in the daytime teaching 20 delegates how to build their own cigar box guitar (see separate event). Brooks will be doing a slide guitar workshop for this small group, and Chickenbone John will be opening the evening proceedings.
