Since finding his place within the U.S. folk music community as an exceptional performer and teacher, Jack Williams’ memorable, energetic solo concerts have been applauded from Newport, Kerrville, Philadelphia, and SummerFolk festivals to all types of music halls across 48 states and 8 countries. His musical journey began at 4, on the ukulele, quickly learning the piano and trumpet, absorbing big band jazz, pop, and classical music on his parents’ 78 rpm records, and the raw folk and blues music in 1940s South Carolina. He discovered the guitar in 1958 and formed a decades-long series of bands. His solo music is influenced by a long early career in jazz, classical, folk, rock and roll, blues, and R&B. A professional touring artist and teacher for 55 years, Jack’s songs and stories display a clear sense of place, many of them grounded in – or inspired by – deep southern roots.
Jack appeared with Ronny Cox at Isis Music Hall two years ago and did a wonderful opening set.
