Expatriate South Carolina singer-songwriter Jack Williams (now living near Fayetteville, Arkansas) tours the national folk music circuit constantly, but if you’ve missed him thus far or if it has been too long since he has been to your neck of the woods, this week offers an opportunity to see and hear Jack, along with his friend and fellow musician Ronny Cox, in a live concert online.
Part of the Blue Ridge Cabin Concerts series in Blue Ridge, GA, the show will stream live on on February 13, 8PM EST, at
The show will also be rebroadcast on February 14th at 3PM EST, and archived on their concert event page, so if you’re reading this after the live stream is over there’s still a way to hear the show.
Not familiar with Jack Williams? He’s a fifty-year veteran of the music industry who found the folk music community in the mid-1990s and has become a familiar sight at festivals such as Kerrville in the years since. Williams was the accompanist of choice for Mickey Newbury during the last years of that venerable songwriter’s life, and he has released a string of excellent albums on the Folk Era/Wind River record label.

Ronny Cox is a name that’s probably still more familiar to fans of the classic film “Deliverance” than it is to music fans, though Cox has written and played music for many years in addition to his acting roles. Cox and Williams have many connections, including Cox’s use of Williams’ group of touring musicians for recent recording sessions and his own tours.
