Brooks Williams

‘A fret monster who has to be seen to be believed!’ – San Antonio Light

Lauded as one of the Top 100 acoustic guitarists of all time and one of the hits of the last two Birmingham festivals, Brooks Williams has been wowing audiences worldwide for nearly 24 years with his silky voice, hook-laden songs and rollicking acoustic guitar. Born in Statesboro, Georgia, he is now located in the rather different surroundings of Cambridge, UK, but continues to play everywhere from Istanbul to Boston, from Detroit to Nairobi, and has gigged with such big names as Taj Mahal, Billy Bragg, Paul Jones and John Hammond. His 17 CDs have seen him working with producers such as Colin Linden in Toronto and Phil Madeira in Nashville.
