About the event
Best known for his role as lead guitarist for local Allman Brothers tribute band Skydog, we’re super excited to welcome Brian “Willie” Williams for his Isley debut!
First take some strong vocals and poignant, honest storytelling. Add a healthy dose of blues and bluegrass influenced guitar, then finish it off with top notch showmanship and you'll start to get an idea of what Brian is all about. With influences that range from Otis Redding to the Grateful Dead, Brian’s music is as familiar as it is fresh. An accomplished multi-instrumentalist, Brian is a fixture of the Richmond, VA music scene and has participated in countless projects. From Bluegrass mandolin to New Orleans funk, Brian finds a way to weave it all together into a style that is truly his own. Current projects include: Bluegrass duets with Eight More Miles; lead guitar with Allman Brothers Tribute band Skydog; Solo Acoustic performances, and various session jobs around the region. His solo setlist features a repertoire of nearly 200 songs! Come give him a listen!
