Brooks Williams

with Joy Clark

Guitarist, song wrangler, roots music connoisseur.

Cambridge, England-based and Statesboro, Georgia US-born guitarist, singer and songwriter Brooks Williams is admired by listeners and fellow musicians alike. With over 33 recordings, plus countless concert and festival appearances, Brooks has been a leading light on the roots acoustic music scene for over three decades. His guitar skills are evident as he adroitly slides in and out of folk, blues, and country, and he is listed in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists. He wraps that guitar playing around songs with rich narratives and sings them with a voice you “melt into.” He cut his teeth supporting artists like Shawn Colvin, Leo Kottke, and Taj Mahal and regularly performs with a host of fellow musicians, including fiddler Aaron Catlow and banjoist Dan Walsh. Brooks Williams is “quite simply one of the most unassuming, natural performers on the circuit, and his easy, relaxed manner conceals the greatest level of true expertise” (FAETA).

“One of the most consistently excellent musicians in roots music…his songwriting…stands comparison with virtually any of his peers.”
