Folk legends Rab Noakes and Brooks Williams cometogether for a Scotland-USA transatlantic collaboration, fuelled by a shared passion for acoustic roots rock, hook-laden songwriter pop, and folky Americana.
Born in Statesboro, Georgia, Brooks Williams got his start in the small bars and coffeehouses of New York and Boston. That was 28 albums ago and his recent appearances include The Tolbooth in Stirling, Music Room, Fairport's Cropredy Festival, Costa del Folk, and Shrewsbury Folk Festival.
A rootsy songwriter, Williams is ranked in the top 100 acoustic guitarists and his voice is one ‘you just melt into’ (Americana UK). He’s collaborated with the likes of Hans Theessink, Boo Hewerdine, Sally Barker, Chris Difford, Dave Kelly & Paul Jones.
Rab Noakes is a force to be reckoned with in the world of music. A songwriter performer from Fife, after more than 50 years and 20 albums, the latest of these Welcome to Anniversaryville was released in the summer of 2018.
Rab’s songs reflect his lifelong interest in ‘popular songs’ and ‘roots songs’, combining melodic hooks and Americana-styled narratives. His interpretations are inspired and feature songs from sources as diverse as Elizabeth Cotten and Beck.
