Singer/Songwriter Jack Williams will perform at Music on Malphrus in Bluffton on Friday, November 3rd at 7 pm. General Admission is $20. Doors open at 6 pm.
Since finding his place within the U.S. folk music community as an inspirational performer and teacher, Jack Williams’ memorable, energetic solo concerts have been applauded from Newport, Kerrville, Philadelphia and other folk festivals to all types of concert halls, coffeehouses and house concerts across the US and in 8 countries. His musical journey began at 4, on the ukulele, then he quickly learned the piano and trumpet, absorbed 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 – often performing in the Lowcountry, where he lived for many years. 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 59 years, Jack’s songs and stories display a clear sense of place, many of them grounded in – or inspired by – deep southern roots.
Jack has 11 CDs and a DVD on Wind River Records. www.JackWilliamsMusic.com. A song of his was featured in the March print edition of Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and a 3-song video performance can be seen in the on-line edition, at http://acousticguitar.com/acoustic-guitar-sessions-presents-jack-williams/
