Brooks Wiliams, Jim Trick opens

8:00pm

Location: 

Club Passim

Brooks Williams hails from Statesboro, Georgia, the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell. Not one easy to pigeon-hole, Williams’ music is a roots music love-child. “Soulful Americana, full-on blues and tasty rootsy grooves. He really rocks!” writes fRoots. Fellow guitar-wizard Martin Simpson calls Brooks Williams the “Real Thing!” Williams got his start in the clubs and bars around Boston, the same music scene that years earlier sparked the careers of Bonnie Raitt and Chris Smither. There, playing five to six nights a week, he developed his signature sound. He’s a mean finger-picker and a stunning slide guitarist and is ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists. Plus, “he has a beautiful voice that you just melt into,” says AmericanaUK. In fact, in 2013 Williams was nominated “best male vocalist” by the UK’s foremost roots-music mavens, Spiral Earth.
