    THE BOSTON BLUES PARTY Remastered Part 2 of 3

    22:46

    If you've viewed the 1st part & read the description, than you have an idea what you're looking at here. Part 2 is the live cuts from Ted Harvey & Jimmy D. Lanes gig at Johnny D's in Somerville, Ma( just north of Boston) from December 9, 2000. Part one sets you up to see just how Houserockin' Ted Harvey really is here in part 2. It's the 1st time lead guitarist Jimmy D. Lane had ever played a set using no bass player, which is known as Chicago style blues. The backround information is primarily found in parts 1 & 3, but part 2 has the meat of the live jam. The Boston Blues Party was written, produced, filmed, edited & directed by Keith McDonald & Thom McDonald, & was remastered at K-MAX Studios in association with Homegrown Video 2013.

    Playing an Eric Clapton owned 1964 Gibson

    1:32

    Hello! I am a guitarist from Mendoza, Argentina (The Andes Mountains and great Malbec red wine).

    This video is from a show in Guernsey Island (UK) with Ukulele virtuoso Taimane Gardner. I am playing a Gibson SG Melody Maker from 62' or 64' that Eric Clapton owned and played, before he sold it an an auction in the mid 90's to the owner of this venue (for Clapton's drug addiction center).

    WASP 2010 I wanna be somebody

    6:43

    Live show @ De Pul in Uden (Netherlands) on november 13th 2010. 8th Song of this shortned setlist.

    Had a great time, but cannot entirely get rid of the feeling that Blackie didn't enjoy it at all. Setlist was shortned with 4 songs (including the Hellion medley). Could it be that he was disappointed by the low attendency ( show wasn't sold out. Capacity is about 650 people)? Or was it somthing else?

    Anyway the other musicians also gave a hell of a show. It was difficult to film them, because of their constant movement :-) .

    We were glad to be there!!! The music is fantastic.

    Brooks Williams - Frank Delandry

    4:41

    Brooks Williams plays Frank Delandry (his ode to the legendary New Orleans guitarist) at TwickFolk in Twickenham London, October 2012. Filmed by Mike Watts.



    Follow Brooks on Facebook:
    More info:


    _______

    Brooks Williams, from Statesboro, Georgia USA (the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell and his song Statesboro Blues), creates a super-charged acoustic music that draws heavily on both his blues and Americana roots. The resulting sound can be described as “Blues-icana,” that confluence of crossroads where American roots music comes together.

    Keys And Chords describes Williams' music as A beautiful fusion of blues, old country and a touch Americana.” fRoots says Williams really rocks, stirring up soulful Americana, full-on blues and tasty rootsy grooves. Like drinking whiskey from a honey jar, you get both the sweet and the bite. Resonator slide and acoustic Piedmont picking lay down the groove while Williams' laid-back low-country vocal floats over top.

    Brooks Williams got his start in the clubs and bars around New York and Boston (the same music scene that years earlier sparked the careers of Bonnie Raitt and Chris Smither). There, playing 5-6 nights a week, he developed his signature roots sound. From the very beginning and still to this day, audiences are often heard asking, how can one guitar and one voice sound like a full band?

    In 2013 Williams was nominated best male vocalist by the UK’s foremost roots-music mavens, Spiral Earth. AmericanaUK says, “he has a beautiful voice that you just melt into.” He has that way of delivering a song that plays with the line the way a slide guitarist teases the notes from the strings.

    And he’s one helluva good guitar player, ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists. The San Antonio Light says that Williams is a “fret monster who has to be seen to be believed!” Whether playing his trusty National resonator slide guitar, his road-worn Collings acoustic or his tobacco-burst Washburn hollow-body, this guy knows a thing or two about the guitar. Over the years he’s picked alongside Taj Mahal, John Hammond, Paul Jones, Little Feat, Maria Muldaur, Shawn Colvin and Leo Kottke, to name but a few.

    With twenty-two albums to his name, including Brooks' Blues (2017), My Turn Now (2016) and Shreveport Sessions (2014), Williams has recorded for labels as diverse as Signature Sounds, Green Linnet Records, Reveal Records, Solid Air Records, as well as his own Red Guitar Blue Music. He’s learned the studio trade first-hand working with roots music producers like Colin Linden (Blackie And The Rodeo Kings, Bruce Cockburn) in Toronto and Phil Madeira (Buddy and Julie Miller, Emmylou Harris) in Nashville. His music has featured on the BBC (UK), RTE (Ireland), CBC (Canada) and NPR (USA) and has charted on the FOLKDJ stations. He can also be heard on Satellite and Internet radio throughout the world. WUMB-FM radio in Boston (USA) voted him one of their Top 100 Artists.

    Brooks Williams tours relentlessly in the US, UK & Europe. Recent appearances include Celtic Connections (Scotland), Meneer Frits (Netherlands), Cambridge Folk Festival (England), Falcon Ridge Festival (USA), Cathedral Quarter Festival (N. Ireland), and Winnipeg Folk Festival (Canada). All in all, thousands of gigs over thousands of miles!

    Brooks Williams - Water Song

    3:25

    Brooks Williams performs his arrangement of Water Song, which was written by Jorma Kaukonen and recorded on the Hot Tuna album Burgers. Brooks' arrangement is available on the 2018 re-issue of his critically acclaimed Signature Sounds release, Little Lion (originally released in 2000). Video by Andy Craig. Recorded by Mark Freegard at Kyoti Recording Studio in Glasgow, Scotland. For more information about Brooks Williams, visit .
    ___

    At the crossroads of blues and American roots music you’ll find Brooks Williams. “Setting new standards and a fresh direction for the blues,” says Blues In Britain, and creating a “beautiful fusion” (Keys And Chords). Just when you think he can’t sing a blues-ier note, he sings it. Just when you think he can’t strum a deeper groove, he strums it.

    Brooks Williams was born in Statesboro, Georgia, USA (the town made famous by the classic song Statesboro Blues), and did his apprenticeship in the small bars and coffeehouses of New York and Boston, following in the footsteps of Chris Smither, Rory Block, Shawn Colvin, Maria Muldaur, David Bromberg and Leo Kottke, all whom he gigged with from time-to-time when he was starting out.

    The result of those early years is an unflagging career that goes from strength to strength. “Lucky Star,” Williams’ 28th solo recording, is already turning heads and making itself known on playlists throughout the world. The Second Line groove that runs throughout every track would make the late Allen Toussaint proud.

    Williams performs hundreds of solo and band shows throughout Europe, North America and the UK each year and regularly collaborates with an impressive list of fellow musicians, including Hans Theessink, Guy Davis, Sally Barker, Boo Hewerdine, Paul Jones, and Rab Noakes.

    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.” That voice earned Brooks a nomination for Best Male Vocalist by Spiral Earth, one of the UK’s most respected roots music publications.

    He’s no slouch as a songwriter, and has an impeccable ear for a good cover. Williams’ original songs are typically sophisticated musically, and yet sound immediately familiar – a sign of a skilled songwriter”, writes Down At The Crossroads. His massive repertoire spans classic roots and blues. Check out his version of Dave Alvin’s “King Of California” and follow it with Williams’ instant classic, “Gambling Man.”

    Brooks Williams has played all the major stages, like The Birchmere in Virginia, The Guthrie Center in Massachusetts, The Tolbooth in Scotland, The Liverpool Philharmonic Hall in England, Meneer Frits in The Netherlands, Harvest Blues in Ireland, The Avalon Theater in Maryland, JazzLand in Austria, The Stables in England, and Blues Au Chateau in France. And he gets invited back.

    He’s played the Fairport Cropredy Festival, Newport Folk Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival, Costa del Folk, Shrewsbury Festival, Celtic Connections and the Glastonbury Festival.

    He’s recorded for labels as diverse as Signature Sounds, Green Linnet Records, Reveal Records, Solid Air Records, as well as his own Red Guitar Blue Music. He’s learned the studio trade first-hand working with roots music producers like Colin Linden (Blackie And The Rodeo Kings, Bruce Cockburn) in Toronto and Phil Madeira (Buddy and Julie Miller, Emmylou Harris) in Nashville.

    His instructional guitar workshops frequently sell out, and his teaching is in demand at music camps and colleges around the world. His music has featured on the BBC (UK), RTE (Ireland), CBC (Canada), NPR (USA) and Sirius XM (USA), and he’s charted on the FOLKDJ chart, EuroAmericana chart and Blues Lists around the world. WUMB-FM in Boston (USA) voted him one of their Top 100 Artists.

    Praised by Blues Matters, fRoots, Rolling Stone, the Boston Globe and Mojo, Williams is at the top of his game. His tour schedule has never been busier. He writes and records at an astonishing pace. He loves it, and that love exudes from every note.

    He’s no slouch as a songwriter, and has an impeccable ear for a good cover. Williams’ original songs are typically sophisticated musically, and yet sound immediately familiar – a sign of a skilled songwriter”, writes Down At The Crossroads. His massive repertoire spans classic roots and blues. Check out his version of Dave Alvin’s “King Of California” and follow it with Williams’ instant classic, “Gambling Man.”

    Brooks Williams has played all the major stages, like The Birchmere in Virginia, The Guthrie Center in Massachusetts, The Tolbooth in Scotland, The Liverpool Philharmonic Hall in England, Meneer Frits in The Netherlands, Harvest Blues in Ireland, The Avalon Theater in Maryland, JazzLand in Austria, The Stables in England, and Blues Au Chateau in France. And he gets invited back.

    He’s played the Fairport Cropredy Festival, Newport Folk Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival, Costa del Folk, Shrewsbury Festival, Celtic Connections and the Glastonbury Festival.

    He’s recorded for labels as diverse as Signature Sounds, Green Linnet Records, Reveal Records, Solid Air Records, as well as his own Red Guitar Blue Music. He’s learned the studio trade first-hand working with roots music producers like Colin Linden (Blackie And The Rodeo Kings, Bruce Cockburn) in Toronto and Phil Madeira (Buddy and Julie Miller, Emmylou Harris) in Nashville.

    His instructional guitar workshops frequently sell out, and his teaching is in demand at music camps and colleges around the world. His music has featured on the BBC (UK), RTE (Ireland), CBC (Canada), NPR (USA) and Sirius XM (USA), and he’s charted on the FOLKDJ chart, EuroAmericana chart and Blues Lists around the world. WUMB-FM in Boston (USA) voted him one of their Top 100 Artists.

    Praised by Blues Matters, fRoots, Rolling Stone, the Boston Globe and Mojo, Williams is at the top of his game. His tour schedule has never been busier. He writes and records at an astonishing pace. He loves it, and that love exudes from every note.

    Brooks Williams - Save the Bones for Henry Jones

    ___

    At the crossroads of blues and American roots music you’ll find Brooks Williams. “Setting new standards and a fresh direction for the blues,” says Blues In Britain, and creating a “beautiful fusion” (Keys And Chords). Just when you think he can’t sing a blues-ier note, he sings it. Just when you think he can’t strum a deeper groove, he strums it.

    Brooks Williams was born in Statesboro, Georgia, USA (the town made famous by the classic song Statesboro Blues), and did his apprenticeship in the small bars and coffeehouses of New York and Boston, following in the footsteps of Chris Smither, Rory Block, Shawn Colvin, Maria Muldaur, David Bromberg and Leo Kottke, all whom he gigged with from time-to-time when he was starting out.

    The result of those early years is an unflagging career that goes from strength to strength. “Lucky Star,” Williams’ 28th solo recording, is already turning heads and making itself known on playlists throughout the world. The Second Line groove that runs throughout every track would make the late Allen Toussaint proud.

    Williams performs hundreds of solo and band shows throughout Europe, North America and the UK each year and regularly collaborates with an impressive list of fellow musicians, including Hans Theessink, Guy Davis, Sally Barker, Boo Hewerdine, Paul Jones, and Rab Noakes.

    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.” That voice earned Brooks a nomination for Best Male Vocalist by Spiral Earth, one of the UK’s most respected roots music publications.

    Macmull Custom Guitars review and adulation with Gearmanndude & Sharon at GuitCon

    13:18

    Incredible works of art and function from Macmull Custom Guitars. Handmade in Jerulsalem by a wonderful group of pickers, these guitars may look basic to the eye, but in the hands, they are like hot sex, meets velvet love. Beyond masterbuilt quality...and the tone is supreme. Needless to say, I dig them! I also loved Sharon, who is just an incredible picker and super kind and humble fella. Very fortunate to meet these guys.

    Enormous thanks go to the following, without whom, there would be no GuitCon:

























    And of course, Henning Pauly, Kianna, Marko, Harry, Vladamir, Michele, Tordis, Ove, and just EVERYONE involved.

    please Subscribe if ya feel frisky...

    Brooks Williams, from Statesboro, Georgia USA (the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell and his song Statesboro Blues), creates a super-charged acoustic music that draws heavily on both his blues and Americana roots. The resulting sound can be described as “Blues-icana,” that confluence of crossroads where American roots music comes together.

    Keys And Chords describes Williams' music as A beautiful fusion of blues, old country and a touch Americana.” fRoots says Williams really rocks, stirring up soulful Americana, full-on blues and tasty rootsy grooves. Like drinking whiskey from a honey jar, you get both the sweet and the bite. Resonator slide and acoustic Piedmont picking lay down the groove while Williams' laid-back low-country vocal floats over top.

    Brooks Williams got his start in the clubs and bars around New York and Boston (the same music scene that years earlier sparked the careers of Bonnie Raitt and Chris Smither). There, playing 5-6 nights a week, he developed his signature roots sound. From the very beginning and still to this day, audiences are often heard asking, how can one guitar and one voice sound like a full band?

    In 2013 Williams was nominated best male vocalist by the UK’s foremost roots-music mavens, Spiral Earth. AmericanaUK says, “he has a beautiful voice that you just melt into.” He has that way of delivering a song that plays with the line the way a slide guitarist teases the notes from the strings.

    And he’s one helluva good guitar player, ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists. The San Antonio Light says that Williams is a “fret monster who has to be seen to be believed!” Whether playing his trusty National resonator slide guitar, his road-worn Collings acoustic or his tobacco-burst Washburn hollow-body, this guy knows a thing or two about the guitar. Over the years he’s picked alongside Taj Mahal, John Hammond, Paul Jones, Little Feat, Maria Muldaur, Shawn Colvin and Leo Kottke, to name but a few.

    With twenty-two albums to his name, including Brooks' Blues (2017), My Turn Now (2016) and Shreveport Sessions (2014), Williams has recorded for labels as diverse as Signature Sounds, Green Linnet Records, Reveal Records, Solid Air Records, as well as his own Red Guitar Blue Music. He’s learned the studio trade first-hand working with roots music producers like Colin Linden (Blackie And The Rodeo Kings, Bruce Cockburn) in Toronto and Phil Madeira (Buddy and Julie Miller, Emmylou Harris) in Nashville. His music has featured on the BBC (UK), RTE (Ireland), CBC (Canada) and NPR (USA) and has charted on the FOLKDJ stations. He can also be heard on Satellite and Internet radio throughout the world. WUMB-FM radio in Boston (USA) voted him one of their Top 100 Artists.

    Brooks Williams tours relentlessly in the US, UK & Europe. Recent appearances include Celtic Connections (Scotland), Meneer Frits (Netherlands), Cambridge Folk Festival (England), Falcon Ridge Festival (USA), Cathedral Quarter Festival (N. Ireland), and Winnipeg Folk Festival (Canada). All in all, thousands of gigs over thousands of miles!
