OXFORD – This Saturday, beginning at 8 p.m., 6 On The Square (6OTS) is proud to welcome back Roots n’ Blues premier guitarist and singer-songwriter Brooks Williams.
For more than 25 years Brooks, self-proclaimed ‘certified road-warrior’ has been wowing audiences from Belfast to Boston with his powerful acoustic and resonator slide guitars. Ranked one of the “Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists,” Williams writes groove-laden songs and delivers them with an easy-going vocal style.
Born in Statesboro, Georgia, Williams’ southern roots took hold of his music when he moved to Boston, Massachusetts, in his late teens. It was there, in the little clubs and raucous bars of New York and New England, that he developed his sound. Brooks delivers the deepest and most intense interpretations of everything from early blues songs to his recent original compositions. He’s a musician of staggering depth and breadth, and monstrous guitar chops.
