On Wednesday, September 13, at 7:30pm (7pm doors), Rainshadow Concerts presents songwriter Jack Williams.
“…. his artistry… is nothing short of amazing. Dazzling picking, expressive voice, unique and interesting songs. He is a showman in the best sense of the word and just wowed our audience. I think they would have followed him anywhere.” – Rich Warren, WFMT “Midnight Special”, Chicago IL
“Jack Williams is truly one of the most remarkable guitar players I have had the pleasure to present (and that’s saying something!) and a fine singer-songwriter to boot.” – Everett Moran, Rainshadow Recording
The music of Jack Williams, rooted in his native South Carolina, was shaped by a 54-year career of playing folk, rock, jazz, R&B, classical and the popular music of the 30s, 40s and 50s. He is counted among the most dynamic performers on today’s “folk” circuit – “…one of the most enlightened and entertaining performers I’ve ever encountered”, said Dave Humphreys of Two-Way Street Coffeehouse in Downer’s Grove, IL. Jack is considered a “musician’s musician”, an uncommonly unique guitarist, a writer of vivid songs with a strong sense of place, and a storyteller in an old Southern tradition who further illustrates each tale with his guitar. Vic Heyman, in SING OUT!, wrote, “He is one of the strongest guitar players in contemporary folk.”
