Cobscook Bay Music's first concert featured Jack Williams back in 2009. Jack returns to Lubec for the fourth time to celebrate CB Music's 10th anniversary with a performance at Crow Town Gallery on June 29th. Jack will also perform at a house concert on June 28, and present a workshop benefit for the Lubec Area Musician's Philanthropic Society on June 30. Information and tickets for all these events can be found at CB Music's web site at https://cobscookbaymusic.com The music of Jack Williams, rooted in his native South Carolina, was shaped by a 59-year career of playing folk, rock, jazz, R&B, classical and the popular music of the 30s, 40s and 50s. He is counted among the most dynamic performers on today's "folk" circuit - "...one of the most enlightened and entertaining performers I've ever encountered", said Dave Humphreys of Two-Way Street Coffeehouse in Downer's Grove, IL. Jack is considered a "musician's musician," an uncommonly unique guitarist, a writer of vivid songs with a strong sense of place, and a storyteller in an old Southern tradition who further illustrates each tale with his guitar. Rich Warren of WFMT "Chicago's The Midnight Special" said, "His artistry is nothing short of amazing." Vic Heyman, in SING OUT!, wrote, "He is one of the strongest guitar players in contemporary folk.”
