Jack WIlliams on Open Tunings, WRUR

Songwriter Jack Williams stopped by the station today for some live music, and interesting conversation. I found out he is good friends with Dayna Kurtz, whose song Venezuala (on her album: Another Black Feather) has been a favorite of mine since first hearing it. His own music is mostly original with strong guitar accompaniment. His most recent studio release is a tribute to musicians/songs which are some of his strongest influences. A couple songs that I love are on the recording; Bye, Bye Blackbird, and Young at Heart, as well as King Harvest from The Band.
Jack plays the Lake Effects concert series tonight, September 16, 2009.
Very eclectic taste and sense of quality. He can be seen playing one of his originals in our studio session by following this link:
