Jack Williams

(Arkansas)


April 3, 2022

We are thrilled to have Jack Williams back at Arhaven House Concerts.  Jack performed here during our second season and was scheduled to come back in November 2020 to help us celebrate our 10th season of hosting house concerts.  Of course, that concert was cancelled as a result of the pandemic.  Jack has been performing for over 60 years and he is counted among the most dynamic performers on today's "folk" circuit.  His music is rooted in his native South Carolina and blends folk, rock, jazz, R&B, classical and the popular music of the 30s, 40s and 50s.  Jack is considered a “musician’s musician”, an uncommonly unique guitarist, a writer of vivid songs with a strong sense of place, and a storyteller in an old Southern tradition.  His musicianship, songs, stories and energetic performances have established him as an uncommonly inspiring and influential artist.  Jack is a sought-after artist on all contemporary acoustic music stages, from coffeehouses and festivals to music halls and city arts and cultural centers.  He is a crowd favorite at festivals such as the Newport, Boston, Philadelphia, and Kerrville folk festivals.  Jack has ten CDs of original music on the Wind River (Folk Era) label and his songs have been recorded by the likes of Tom Jones, David Clayton-Thomas, Chuck Pyle, Cindy Mangsen, Ronny Cox and Lowen & Navarro.
