Walking the line between blues and Americana, Williams has worked stages worldwide for over 25 years, amassing a staggering back-catalogue of songs, recordings and tales. With nearly 20 CDs to his name and more on the way this Statesboro Georgia native is, according to americanaUK, "impossible not to like." "I've known Brooks for many years.

Lydia and Phil In Concert
Lydia Fortune and Phil Nigro opened a sold-out show for Dr. Maya Angelou on May 9th at the Hanover Theatre in Worcester, MA. Dr. Angelou's gracious acknowledgment of their performance brought them a second round of applause as she took the stage. The duo presented two tunes during a 6-minute set which included their composition "If I Had My Way". They have recently been named finalists by the Great American Songwriters Contest for the song in a competition that featured songwriters from across the U.S.A. and 45 other countries. The song placed in the top 100. Singer/songwriting team, Lydia Fortune and Phil Nigro, began crafting songs together in May of 2010. Lydia's voice and Phil's guitar are so wonderfully aligned you would think they have been performing together for decades. Both artists have been performing separately in the Regional Massachusetts area for over 40 years. They each began singing various forms of folk music in the 1970s and have developed eclectic repertories across a broad spectrum of musical styles that include folk, country and Delta blues, Americana, jazz and contemporary tunes. It was the mutual love of music that made this collaboration possible. This year, they released a new cd 'If I Had My Way', and continue to frequent regional and local open mic venues.

Sarah Bauhan In Concert
Music is an intimate art form for Sarah Bauhan, who brings together family and long-time friends to share in performances and recordings, and pens waltzes, laments, reels and the like in honor of people who are dear to her. That's no surprise, as the traditional music she plays on whistle and flute shares her Celtic and New England roots. Born and raised in the Monadnock Region of New Hampshire and with strong ties to her mother's native Scotland, Sarah picked up the tin whistle at the age of 12. Within two years she was performing at contra dances with Dudley Laufman's Canterbury Country Dance Orchestra. In addition to Laufman, who is credited with a contra dance revival in southwest New Hampshire, Sarah was influenced by her godfather, Newt Tolman, a flute player and writer, and by Bob McQuillen, a piano player and composer who in 2002 was named a National Heritage Fellow. In 1987, while performing at Pete Seeger's Clearwater Festival in New York, Sarah fell in love with, and soon came to own, a wood concert flute made in 1912 by the Wm. S. Haynes Flute Company of Boston. She added to that instrument a collection of fine wood and silver whistles made by Chris Abell of Asheville, N.C., adding both depth and scope to her repertoire of music. Sarah has released four solo albums, including three on her own label, Whistler's Music: the 1991 "Chasing the New Moon," the 1999 "Broad Waters," and the 2007 "Lathrop's Waltz." "The Untamed Grasses" came out in 1993 on the Alcazar label, and was re-released in 2008 on the Alula label. In addition to recording, Sarah performs at festivals, concerts, and dances, and has taught whistle and flute to children and adults at dance camps, in schools, and in workshops. Her performance options range from a simple duo with a guitarist or pianist to a multi-piece band with fiddle, guitar, bass, and piano and vocals.

Kate MacLeod In Concert
Kate MacLeod's highly acclaimed songs often precede her as other artists sing her songs on stages across the country. Hear this songstress who creates songs that compel music publications such as Sing Out Magazine to claim that Kate MacLeod "channels the spirit of the great Carter Family classics." Twenty-somethings are singing her songs and audiences are beginning to catch on to the versatility of her repertoire. She has opened for artists such as Rosanne Cash, Dan Fogelberg and Greg Brown, but performs winning concerts of her own across the country. Her songwriting style and live performances display an unbreakable link between traditional music and cutting-edge contemporary songwriting. Kate composes music for and about all of us. By request, and as a habit, she has written music based on historic events and personalities, songs based on books and songs commissioned for cultural projects. Whether in a song or on her violin, she captures the essence of our history, our landscapes and our lives in the varied music that she creates. This is no more obvious than in current projects she is developing. Her newest recording project is a collection of songs inspired by books and covers a span of 30 years of songwriting. It was recorded in concert at a bookstore in Salt Lake City. This recording, Kate MacLeod - At Ken Sanders Rare Books, honors both the heart of the community she has lived in for many years and the intermingling of art mediums. For her upcoming recording project, Kate is refining original violin pieces inspired by nature, place and landscape. News of this project will be posted on this website as it develops.
