2016-07-23 00:30:00 2016-07-23 02:30:00 America/Edmonton The Pickin' Post: Jack Williams Concert Fayetteville Public Library and Pickin’ Post radio show host and former GoodFolk House proprietor Mike Shirkey will host a series of folk concerts at the library this summer and fall beginning Friday, July 22nd at 7:30pm with accoustic guitarist and singer/songwriter Jack Williams. The music of Jack Williams, rooted in his native South Carolina, was shaped by a 54-year career of playing folk, rock, jazz, RB, 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.”   Tickets for this after hours event are $15 and available for purchase at the event.  Doors open at 6:30pm and music is set to begin at 7:30pm. no location Fayetteville Public Library
