ABOUT THE ARTIST & SHOW:

Tonight's show is a Double-Bill of Folk 'n Blues featuring Chuck Williams & Bill Metts. You should expect to hear stories and songs while you share a few laughs as you experience these artists perform solo sets with a chance of collaboration!

Chuck Williams has been appearing all along the east coast from Maine to Florida with a couple of trips through the heartland. Raised in Toledo Ohio, Chuck lived most of his adult life in Massachusetts, and now divides his time between living on Buzzards Bay shoreline and Ft. Myers. Chuck has been performing continuously in coffeehouses, performing arts centers and festivals, sowing seeds of his songs along the way.

If you like a great folk song, don't miss Chuck's newest CD, "Stories I've Told." It is easy to understand why Chuck was chosen as a finalist in the 2019 South Florida Folk Festival with songs like ''Backyard Oak Tree", "Pawn Shop" and the most popular track, "Riders of the Rails".


Bill Metts started playing fingerstyle guitar during the Country Blues revival of the 60s and fell in love with the music of Taj Mahal, Mississippi John Hurt, Doc Watson and others of that ilk. Just about everything that he has done since then has been in that "down-home" finger-picking style.

He has performed at the annual Mississippi John Hurt Blues Festival in Avalon Ms., at the historic Blue Front Cafe and at the famous Ground Zero in Clarksdale Mississippi. Though he has dabbled in all types of music, today he prefers to play and sing original tunes or traditional Americana roots music.

Bill will be playing mostly original tunes with a few old time, feel good, toe-tapping covers thrown in for good measure. Though he usually plays solo there is a good chance that a friend or two will show up to join him on stage.
