A special show for New York bluesman GUY DAVIS and Statesboro, Georgia born roots and americana singer-songwriter BROOKS WILLIAMS, ranked one for the top Acoustic Guitarists of all time.

Two beautiful guitarists displaying a level of skill and humanity that makes audiences smile wherever they perform

Guy Davis

Whether Guy Davis is appearing on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” or nationally syndicated radio programs such as Garrison Keillor’s, “A Prairie Home Campanion”, “Mountain Stage” or David Dye’s,“World Café”., in front of 15,000 people on the Main Stage of a major festival, or teaching an intimate gathering of students at a Music Camp, Guy feels the instinctive desire to give each listener his ‘all’.

Brooks Williams

Ranked one of the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, singer-songwriter Brooks Williams writes groove-laden songs and delivers them with an easy-going vocal style and monstrous guitar chops Walking the line between blues and Americana, Williams has worked stages worldwide for over 25 years, amassing a staggering back-catalogue of songs, recordings and tales. With nearly 20 CDs to his name – and more on the way – this Statesboro Georgia native is, according to americanaUK, “impossible not to like.”?

Jim Condie

Although he first picked up a guitar at the age of 14, Glasgow musician Jim Condie thought his big break had come when, in 1981, two weeks after his 30th birthday, he got a gig backing Lena Zavaroni. Flushed with success, Jim immediately stepped into a duo with Edinburgh legend Tam White, who Alexis Korner rated as “the greatest undiscovered Blues talent of our time”. Between them, they built up a ten-piece Rhythm ‘n’ Blues band, The Dexters, which, with its blend of raw-edged Blues and sophisticated Ray Charles inspired jazz/ R’n’B, took Scotland and the North by storm. . In their time, they recorded two albums and made countless BBC radio and TV broadcasts.
