Brooks Williams and Dan Walsh
11th May 2023 - 8pm
Admired by both listeners and fellow musicians alike, Brooks Williams and Dan Walsh combine talents for an extraordinary collaboration of British and Americana roots music.
Each is a leading light on their respective instruments and they both bring buckets of charisma and talent to the stage. Add to that poignant songs and lively humour and the result is a truly remarkable duet.
Brooks Williams plays guitar with ‘melodic virtuosity’ (IRISH NEWS), effortlessly combining old-time fingerpicking, country flat picking and bluesy backbeats. He’s rated one of the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists and is ‘quite simply one of the most unassuming, natural performers on the circuit’ (FATEA).
BBC Folk Awards ‘Best Musician’ nominee Dan Walsh plays British, Irish and American folk music. His ‘virtuoso playing’ (MORNING STAR) features a unique and dazzling take on clawhammer style banjo helping to challenge all preconceptions about the instrument. ‘Absolutely terrific’ (Mark Radcliffe, BBC RADIO 2).
