A musical favourite will be returning to a monthly gig in Rothbury next week.

Brooks Williams will be performing at Rothbury roots’ monthly slot at the Queen’s Head Hotel on Thursday, August 25.

Ranked as one of the top 100 acoustic guitarists and as a singer-songwriter, he writes groove-laden songs and delivers them with an easy-going vocal style and silky smooth guitar.

Walking the line between blues and Americana, Brooks lives in Cambridge but tours on both sides of the pond every year.

With nearly 20 CDs to his name – and more on the way – this Statesboro Georgia native is, according to AmericanaUK, ‘impossible not to like’ and his return to Rothbury Roots is a testament to that.

Rothbury Roots host Andy Craig will be supporting Brooks.

Doors open at 7.30pm, with music from 8pm. Admission is £10, tickets from the Queen’s Head Hotel.
