Jack Williams

South Carolinian Jack Williams, guitarist/singer/songwriter/storyteller,
is outstanding among a handful of artists who - in skill, depth and integrity –
stand head and shoulders above the many performers flooding today’s folk circuit.
Among acoustic guitarists he is near-legendary. Having avoided the compromises
of the commercial music industry during his 45 plus-year professional career, he prefers
touring “under the radar”, playing concerts, large and small, week in and week out,
from the sheer love of music and performing.

Jack is now a sought-after artist on contemporary acoustic - or "folk" - music stages.
From his acclaimed appearances at the Newport, Boston, Philadelphia, Kerrville,
(New Bedford) SummerFest, and other Folk Festivals, his musicianship, songs, stories
and commanding presence established him as an uncommonly inspiring and influential performer.
Jack Williams is an artist for all seasons...

"...one of my all-time favorite pickers."
Tom Paxton

"Jack is the best guitar player I've ever heard."
Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul & Mary)

"....pure emotive guitar-picking, weathered sliding baritone / tenor
in deftly-crafted songs.... Williams is instantly endearing."

- Stephen Ide in Dirty Linen

"...one of the strongest guitar players in contemporary folk."
- Sing Out!
