Brooks Williams

  • Black Forest Community Club 12530 Black Forest Road Colorado Springs, CO, 80908 United States (map)

Members $5, Non Members $10

Brooks Williams, from Statesboro, Georgia (the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell), creates a super-charged roots music. Key And Chords from Belgium describes Williams' music as "A beautiful fusion of blues, old country and a touch Americana." Audiences are often heard asking, how can one guitar and one voice sound like a full band?

His massive repertoire spans classic roots and blues, compelling covers (from the likes of Dave Alvin, Mose Allison and Kris Kristofferson), and his own songs, which are rooted in blues and old country but are thoroughly alive with clearly-drawn ironic characters and rich blues pathos.
