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