Brooks Williams and Siobhán Quinn & Michael Bowers
CD Release - "Dreamers, Lovers & Outlaws"

Brooks Williams’ music rocks like the blues and swings like jazz inspiring Dirty Linen magazine to call Williams one of "America's musical treasures." His musical vision encompasses blues fingerpicking, swingin’ slide, and rootsy flatpicking, and manifests itself in a hybrid of funky chords, walking bass lines, and fiery leads inspiring the comment, “Now there’s a musician who loves his work!” A guitarist, songwriter and interpreter, Williams, who now makes his home in the Northampton area of Western MA, regularly leads guitar, performance and songwriting workshops at The Swannanoa Gathering, Cedar Run Song Workshops, Newport Guitar Festival to name but a few, and runs a series of summer day camps teaching beginning blues and roots guitar to kids.

Joining Brooks, with whom she has frequently toured, Siobhán Quinn belts and soothes her way through an explosive performance, combining a strong blend of contemporary as well as traditional folk and acoustic rhythm & blues. In 2004, Siobhán partnered with Michael Bowers, now her husband, and moved to Alexandria, VA from whence they tour, write, and record together, not to mention garnering awards from WAMA to Kerrville. Siobhán’s teaching residencies for school children combine traditional music, folklore, history, geography, theatrical character development and storytelling all of which inform their own music. Take home their latest CD, Dreamers, Lovers and Outlaws which spans the range from hopeful desires for peace to hard hitting blues to find out...
