Friday, March 2 

The Ozark Rivers Chapter of the National Audubon Society is pleased to
announce that Recording Artist, Brooks Willams has graciously agreed to
return to Rolla to benefit Ozark Rivers Audubon and Tanager Trails Ozark
Nature Reserve for the second time. Williams dazzled his Rolla audience in

vocals and technically stunning guitar playing. This year’s performance will
feature new material as well as some old favorites.

The concert will be held Friday, March 2, at the Cedar Street Center for the
Arts (Ozark ActorsTheater), 701 Cedar Street in Rolla.   A "Meet the Artist"
reception will begin at 6:30 p.m. Hors d'oeuvres, wine and soft drinks are
included in the ticket price. The concert will follow at 8:00 p.m.  Tickets
are $20 ($25 at the door) and are available at both Town and Country Bank
locations in Rolla. 

Some praise for the music of Brooks Williams:
“…Blues & Ballads… this, his 15th solo release is another work of sizzling
guitar mastery…” (Valley Advocate)
“A fret monster who has to be seen to be believed!” (San Antonio Light)
“...deft, tasteful guitar chops.” (Rolling Stone)
“...enchanting, folksy charm, bluesy bite and pop-rock élan...the best Paul
Simon songs not written by Paul Simon.”   (San Diego Union-Tribune)
“Intelligent, soulful songwriting and dazzling guitarwork.” (Acoustic
Guitar)
“Williams has an impressive vocal instrument, one that effortlessly glides
across melodies imbuing them with subtle emotion, and aching melancholy as
his lighthearted guitar adds layers of nuance. He’s an obvious fret board
wiz, but the picking always compliments the song’s lyrics and emotions.”
(Harp)
“Stop, look, and above all listen as Brooks Williams whomps his way through
percussive, string-bending blues. Then wait for him to switch from slide to
quieter explorations of longing and night fears, indecision and stormy
weather.”  (Village Voice)
