As Mrs Yarringtons Music Club moves into our 10th year we welcome one of Mrs Y's favourites to kick off 2018 with Brooks Williams. You may have caught him at Mrs Y's or last years Big Green Cardigan you will know this is not to be missed.
Now based in the UK, Brooks Williams hails from Statesboro, Georgia, the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell. Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, he’s a mean finger-picker and a stunning slide guitarist. Plus, “he has a beautiful voice,” says AmericanaUK, “that you just melt into.” Not one easy to pigeon-hole, Brooks' music is the love-child of country-blues and soulful Americana.
His massive repertoire spans classic roots and blues, Trouble In Mind, Backwater Blues and Mother Earth, as well as compelling covers from the likes of Dave Alvin, Buddy Miller and Mose Allison. His own songs are thoroughly alive with clearly-drawn ironic characters, like Frank Delandry and Evil Knievel, and rich in blues pathos.
Brooks Williams has worked stages worldwide for over twenty-five years, touring constantly in the US, UK and Europe. Audiences are often heard asking, how can one guitar and one voice sound like a full band? The San Antonio Light says that Williams is a “fret monster who has to be seen to be believed!”

"Stirring up soulful Americana, full-on blues and tasty rootsy grooves, he really rocks." (fRoots)

"Talent, taste and astonishing technique." (Blues Revue)

“We called him back for three encores!” (Blues In Britain)

"A fret monster who has to be seen to be believed!” (San Antonio Light)

“Americana at its finest!” (fRoots)

“…classy, tasteful, bright, and hugely enjoyable!" (Blues Matters)
