Join Me at Club Passim to Hear Christopher Williams - Wednesday, January 21 at 7:00 PM
I invite all who are able to join me this Wednesday evening at 7:00 at Club Passim in Harvard Square to hear my friend, acclaimed musician Christopher Williams. He will be recording a live album at this performace and the one the following evening.
If you are not yet familiar with Mr. Williams' music, here is a thumbnail sketch:
Christopher Williams is a songwriter and an entertainer, engaging audiences with what the Boston Phoenix calls “lush guitar work, sweet soaring vocals,” and sometimes the added percussive vulnerability of a single djembe hand drum. During the last several years, Williams has opened for, and in some cases accompanied on djembe and vocals, such renowned performers as David Wilcox, the waifs, Peter Himmelman, Patty Larkin, the subdudes, and Arlo Guthrie, in a wide array of venues ranging from Boston’s Sanders Theatre to Nashville’s Bluebird Café to San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall. He’s also brought his music to the main stage at many of the nation’s finest folk festivals, including New York’s Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, Texas’ Kerrville Folk Festival, and Oklahoma’s Woody Guthrie Festival.
In moving to Nashville, Williams gives up a respectable Boston career, including his penchant for repeatedly selling out three-show nights at Cambridge’s famed Club Passim and garnering three Boston Music Award nominations. But, Williams remains confident in trusting the twists and turns his life’s journey brings.
