VERA VAN HEERINGEN & BROOKS WILLIAMS – Live in Concert. Sunday 22 September – 6pm

VERA VAN HEERINGEN & BROOKS WILLIAMS – SONG ROOTS

Two Masters of Roots Songwriting In Concert

 A night of songs, stories and masterful guitar playing.

Duets as well as solos feature in this terrific variation of the “songwriter in the round” sessions made famous in Nashville in the early years of Folk/Americana.

Vera Van Heeringen, originally from The Netherlands, is rooted in transatlantic traditions, astute songwriting and firebrand instrumental virtuosity. In September 2019, Vera released her third album, Won’t Be Broken, which got rave reviews and has been described by the press as her best one yet. A compelling performer, Vera conveys an easy warmth on stage, allowing the music to speak for itself. Stripped back, potent, and full of groove.

“Vera is a master of the less-is-more lyric, conveying more in half-a-dozen words than lesser mortals do in half-a-dozen verses.” (RnR)

Here is a track from Vera:

Brooks Williams, originally from the USA, is creating new music from the confluence of country, blues and folk. New routes from old roots. His songs are rich narratives about adventurers, motorcyclists, lovers, losers and ne’er-do-wells, all set to walking bass lines, stinging lead lines and flying chords. His latest solo recording, “Diamond,” released in March 2024, showcases Williams’ solo guitar and voice in a wonderfully intimate set of songs.

Brooks Williams is “a guitarist in possession of rich vocal powers and a talent for lyrical imagery and uplifting generosity.” (RnR)

Here is a track from Brooks:
