Brooks Williams is a blues singing, guitar picking, bottleneck slide playing certified road warrior who has toured continuously for over twenty-five years. His unique combination of traditional and original music inspired Dirty Linen magazine to call Brooks one of “America’s musical treasures.”

His guitar skills won him a place on the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists list. A native of Statesboro, Georgia (the same Statesboro as Willie McTell’s Statesboro Blues), Brooks has played stages throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom and Istanbul, Turkey. He has gigged with Taj Mahal, John Hammond, David Bromberg, Maria Muldaur, Chris Smither, Leo Kottke, and Rory Block.

Brooks Williams has released more than 16 albums. The Time I Spend With You, 2008’s tour-de-force, went to #3 on the FOLKDJ charts (with three top ten singles, including the Mississippi Fred McDowell standard, 61 Highway) and remained on the charts for six months.
