Brixham Theatre29th September 2016 02:42AMThe great sounds continue with the return of Brooks Williams, alongside Mr New York blues, Guy Davis, on Saturday 12 November, with their 2016 tour 'Inside the Delta'.
Blues legend Guy Davis and Georgia-born roots and Americana singer songwriter Brooks Williams, one of the top acoustic guitarists of all time, explore the routes of the blues.
Guy’s parallel careers– as a musician, an author, a music teacher and a film, television and Broadway actor mark him out as a Renaissance man, yet the blues remain his first and greatest love.
Growing up in a family of artists (his parents were Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis), he fell under the spell of Blind Willie McTell and Fats Waller at an early age. When Guy plays the blues, he doesn’t want you to notice how much art is involved.
‘Kokomo Kidd’, his latest album. finds the blues ambassador visiting fresh territory. His deft acoustic playing and well crafted lyrics are present as always but perhaps offers more light and shade.
Brooks Williams, well known to Brixham audiences, is a man on a mission. He not only tours like a hellhound’s on his trail, but creates a super-charged music that is electrifying and fighting-fit. His influences fly so fast and furious they blur, yet his sound… well, no one does it like Brooks!
He stands on tradition but he doesn’t stand still. He brings together electric, acoustic, slide guitar, singing and songs in a way that is blues to its core but also dips a little deeper into the well.
Brooks writes songs that are a collision of roots and evolution. Nowhere is this more evident than on his new recording, ‘My Turn Now’. Words like ‘timeless’, ‘astutely observed’, and ‘archetypal’ just about cover it.
But at its core it is all about contrast. Like drinking whiskey from a honey jar, you get both the sweet and the bite.
These two superb guitarists and singers will be displaying a level of skill and humanity that makes audiences smile wherever they perform. It’s going to be the biggest gig of the year and quite a night!
Tickets are £15 in advance (£17 on the door if available) and can be obtained from the Theatre Box Office 01803 882717 or at www.brixhamtheatre.org.uk.
