This soulful evening of acoustic blues will feature the expressive vocals and impeccable guitar stylings of
Tim Williams with special guests singer/songwriters Gail and Karl.

Tim’s wins at the 30th Annual International Blues Challenge (in Memphis 2014) as Best Solo or Duo, and Best Guitarist (solo or duo), are just the latest accolades in a career entering its fifth decade. Tim's blend of passionate, gritty vocals and awe-inspiring chops on a number of instruments (including finger-style and slide guitar, mandolin and Hawaiian guitar among others), along with his wry sense of humor and deep knowledge of blues and roots music, continues to win fans everywhere he plays.

Williams' career began in the coffee houses of Southern California in the mid-1960s and continues today around the world from his home base in Calgary. Tim has played festivals, folk clubs, concert halls and roadhouses from Rabat, Morocco, to Melbourne, Australia, and from Dawson City, Yukon Territory to Zihuatanejo, Mexico, all to huge acclaim. His guitar skills are frequently compared to Ry Cooder and David Lindley and his song writing has won praise from the likes of Tom Russell and Willie Nelson.

Local musicians Gail & Karl Hourigan, who will open the show, are the core writing team at the heart of The Malarkeys, a popular Celtic folk rock band from Kelowna. Stepping out as the duo “Gail and Karl” gives them a chance to highlight more of their original songs, dive into old and new songs by other artists and explore different genres.
Get your groove on and join us for an evening of live music.
