Richard has performed for Fiddle & Bow several times over the years and audiences have enjoyed his great guitar work and his droll sense of humor. Whether on 6 or 12-string guitar, Richard has mastered many styles based on his early music listening which ranged from the Beatles, to J.S. Bach, to John Fahey, to Andres Segovia. 

He honed his skills in the late ‘70’s while at the University of Alabama and began performing on the coffee house circuit. By the ‘80’s he had moved to Florida and abandoned corporate life to perform full-time.  He released his first album during this time, “Somewhere In Between.”

Sarah McQuaid’s voice has been likened to malt whiskey, melted chocolate and “honey poured into wine” (Minor 7th). Her new album Walking Into White (2015) is her most honest and adventurous work to date, with a depth and texture of soundscape that are reflected in her beautifully crafted live shows. A captivating performer, she seduces her audience with cheeky banter and stories from the road, as well as with stunning musicianship; in her hands, the guitar becomes much more than merely an accompanying instrument.

Born in Spain, raised in Chicago and now living in rural England, Sarah refuses to be pigeonholed, segueing easily from one of her emotive originals into a 1930s Cuban jazz number, a 16th century lute piece or an unexpected contemporary cover. Like its predecessors, her fourth solo CD has drawn international critical acclaim: The Musician (UK) called it “A work that grows with each listen,” while Germany’s Folker hailed it as “Ein mutiges Album mit einem potenziellen Pophit” (A courageous album that includes a potential pop hit). “Sending out a trembling resonance, this is a collection of songs that feel their way into your being,” wrote FolkWords (UK), where it was selected as Album of the Month and nominated for both Best Album from a Female Artist and Album of the Year.

Friday, October 14th 
Brooks Williams
 
8:00 PM @ the Muddy Creek Music Hall in Historic Bethania Mill
5455 Bethania Rd, W-S  27106 Cover: $15/$13 F&B members

Brooks Williams, from Statesboro, Georgia (the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell), creates a super-charged roots music. Key And Chords from Belgium describes Williams' music as "A beautiful fusion of blues, old country and a touch Americana." Audiences are often heard asking, how can one guitar and one voice sound like a full band?

fRoots says of Williams, he "really rocks, stirring up soulful Americana, full-on blues and tasty rootsy grooves." Like drinking whiskey from a honey jar, you get both the sweet and the bite. Resonator slide and acoustic Piedmont picking lay down the groove while Williams' laid-back low-country vocal floats over top. AmericanaUK says, “he has a beautiful voice that you just melt into.” And he’s one helluva good guitar player, ranked in the “Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists.” The San Antonio Light says that Williams is a “fret monster who has to be seen to be believed!”



His massive repertoire spans classic roots and blues, compelling covers (from the likes of Dave Alvin, Mose Allison and Kris Kristofferson), and his own songs, which are rooted in blues and old country but are thoroughly alive with clearly-drawn ironic characters and rich blues pathos.
