More music in the park July 28

Recording artist Jack Williams to perform July 7

Jack Williams – who produced and was the lead guitar player for the late, great and exceptional Mickey Newbury – will be at the Ellendale Opera House Thursday, July 7.

The music of Jack Williams is rooted in his native South Carolina, and shaped by a 54-year career of playing folk, rock, jazz, R&B, 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," who writes vivid songs with a strong sense of place.

He is 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."
