Event description
"Williams’ original songs are typically sophisticated musically, and yet sound immediately familiar – a sign of a skilled songwriter”

About this Event

Master guitarist-singer-songwriter Brooks Williams released his first album early in 1990. The Washington Post wrote a glowing review which prompted National Public Radio’s invitation for Williams to appear on All Things Considered with Noah Adams. And that’s where it all began. The tours followed and so did the albums. Counting the new one, he has done twenty-nine in all and has never looked back.

A Statesboro, Georgia native now living in England, Brooks Williams seamlessly brings together Americana and country blues in a style that is unmistakably his own. A flashy fingerpicker, soaring bottleneck slide player and a soulful singer, Brooks Williams “is at the top of his game,” says Blues In Britain, “where pure talent, hard work and relentless touring has brought him to the pinnacle of his career.”

For his 30th Anniversary Tour, Williams has recorded an album of his favourite songs from his back catalogue. Called Work My Claim, the songs reach across the span of years and are as fully relevant now as they were when they were first released. The recording features some of Brooks’ musician friends including John McCusker (Mark Knopfler, McCusker McGoldrick and Doyle, Heidi Talbot), Christine Collister (Richard Thompson, Daphne’s Flight), Jim Henry (Eliza Gilkyson, Tracy Grammer, The Boxcar Lillies), Ralf Grottian (The Bluescats), Aaron Catlow (Yola Carter, Sheelanagig, Hawes & Catlow) and Phil Richardson (Claypath).

Guitarist Martin Simpson sums it up by saying, “He’s a lovely player, a lovely singer, and a great writer. Brooks Williams is the real thing.”
