Multi-award winning Blues singer/songwriter, Cal Williams Jr, combines the gentle fingerpicking of British Folk with the raw intensity of Delta Slide Blues to create a sound that is both intricate and powerful. Blues Blast Magazine, USA, said “Cal Williams Jr’s guitar work is impeccable under his gorgeous voice. A marvellous quilt of tones and textures from this masterful player” and Rhythms magazine said that “Cal’s gentle high tenor voice, delicate fingerpicking and snaky bottleneck fretwork evoke the sound of Mississippi John Hurt in his exceptional guitar playing”. Cal was recently awarded the ARBA Best Blues Soloist Award and was voted in the Top 3 Best Blues Guitarists for the Derringers Music Awards.
