The event creator says
M.A.M.A. the Memphis Acoustic Music Associaton presents one of their first ever performers BROOKS WILLIAMS for a return engagement at Otherlands. $15 advance tickets at Otherlands or Booksellers at Laurelwood. You can also pay at the door.

BROOKS WILLIAMS is proverbial triple-threat: monstrous guitar chops, a rich and silky voice, and hook-laden songs. He walks the line between blues and Americana, but there’s a bit of jazz and rockabilly thrown in for good measure. Imagine Doc Watson, Willie Nelson, Lonnie Johnson and Blind Boy Fuller sitting in a bar having a jam – and you’re just about there!

He is one of the most diverse and entertaining performers on the acoustic roots music scene and is ranked one of the world’s Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists. With 20 CDs to his name – and more on the way – this Statesboro Georgia native is, according to Dirty Linen, ““A consummate artist… among America's musical treasures.”

“Pan-Americana Roots 'n Blues, doused in Moonshine alt-Billy and delicious Dixie” Net Rhythms

“Absolutely beyond criticism! A slice of Americana at its finest!” fRoots

“a fret monster who has to be seen to be believed.” San Antonio Light

“Dazzling guitar work!” Acoustic Guitar

“He possesses a melodic virtuosity on the guitar that runs like liquid from his fingers...” The Irish News
