Guitar skills showcased at Wav Friday

Tim Williams' career began in the coffee houses of southern California in the mid-1960s

Tim Williams’ career began in the coffee houses of southern California in the mid-1960s and continues today around the world from his home base on the Canadian Prairies.

Tim has played festivals, folk clubs, concert halls and roadhouses from Rabat, Morocco, to Melbourne, Australia, and from Dawson City, Yukon Territory to Zihuatanejo, Mexico, all to huge acclaim.

His guitar skills are frequently compared to Ry Cooder and David Lindley (and like them, Tim plays a wealth of other string instruments). His songwriting has won praise from the likes of Tom Russel and Willie Nelson.

A string of Maple Blues Award nominations (Toronto Blues Society), two Juno award nominations (Canada’s Grammy equivalent), five Betty Mitchell Awards for composition/musical direction in theatre, and roughly a dozen awards from Real Blues magazine (as artist, guitarist, producer) attest to the high calibre of his work.

Tim Williams performs this Friday at the Cumberland Hotel in a MusicFest fundraiser.

Tickets at the hotel cost $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

Phone 250-336-8844 for more information.
