CLICK HERE TO BOOK TICKETS

Brooks Williams & Aaron Catlow create joyous and virtuosic music that not only tugs at the heart-strings but also gets you up on your feet.  AmericanaUK writes, “how such a complete and sensational sound can come from just two voices and instruments is awe-inspiring.”

A year on from their debut tour, the two have literally been wowing audiences at venues and festivals like St David’s Hall, Lichfield Guildhall, Folk In A Field Festival, Ely Festival, The Folk House and The Atkinson, to name but a few.

Inspired by the response to their shows, Brooks and Aaron have been back in the studio. Alongside Jon Short on double bass, they have created Greens And Blues, a vibrant collection of songs, some penned by Williams and others by Gillian Welch, Shirley Collins, Molly Tuttle and Rab Noakes among others. The playing on the album has a spontaneity that reflects the hours and hours they have spent onstage in front of audiences. It is a potent combination.

Cambridge UK-based, Georgia US-born, Brooks Williams has a long-standing solo career in both North America and the UK and is also known for his adventurous collaborations with the likes of Dan Walsh, Sloan Wainwright, Boo Hewerdine and Rab Noakes, among others. He is named one of WUMB-FM Boston’s Top 100 All-Time Artists. Fatea refers to him as “one of those select few ‘how on earth does he do it?!’ artists.”

Aaron Catlow is a master violinist and half of the Bristol-based duo Hawes And Catlow, with guitarist-singer Kit Hawes. He is also the fiddler in UK festival favourite Sheelanagig. Catlow’s other credits including playing with Grammy Award-nominated Yola, Mad Dog Mcrea and Afro Celt Sound System.
