Brooks Williams at Old Sloop Coffeehouse with opener Prateek
Old Sloop Coffeehouse will present a concert featuring Brooks Williams Friday, November 1 at 7:30 PM at the handicap-accessible First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School St. Prateek will open.
Brooks Williams hails from Statesboro, Georgia, the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell. Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, he’s a mean finger-picker and a stunning slide guitarist. Plus, “he has a beautiful voice,” says AmericanaUK, “that you just melt into.” Not one easy to pigeon-hole, Brooks’ music is the love-child of country-blues and Americana. fRoots says, “Soulful Americana, full-on blues and tasty rootsy grooves. He really rocks!”
Prateek has been described as “Not just any guy with a guitar…” by The Boston Globe and perhaps that’s the best introduction to his music besides actually listening to it.. He has been a Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Finalist and has been nominated for Singer-Songwriter of the Year at both the New England Music Awards and the Boston Music Awards,
Coffee, tea, and a variety of delicious (and very popular) home-made baked pie and cake will be sold before the concert and at intermission.
