The Long Island Museum, WUSB-FM Radio and the Greater Port Jefferson-Northern Brookhaven Arts Council present an evening with Brook Williams.
Enjoy a visit from this amazing bluesman who has been described as “a fret monster who has to be seen to be believed.” His musical vision spans continents and genres, blues, jazz, slide, finger-style, with funky chords, walking bass lines and fiery riffs.
Originally from Statesboro Georgia, Williams emerged from the Boston blues scene to eventually record twenty-two albums, developing a devoted following in both the US and in the UK (where he now lives) and Europe.
His two most recent albums (released in 2016) showcase his own songwriting (in MY TURN NOW) with BROOKS’ BLUES being his version of some blues classics played on acoustic, resonator and cigar box guitar. (www.brookswilliams.com)
Bob Westcott will open this show. Bob has been perfecting his elegant finger-style guitar work for well over 30 years, from his early years in Greenwich Village, to time spent in England, Canada and various parts of the United States before settling in eastern Long Island. (www.bobwestcott.com)
