JACK WILLIAMS on Friday, August 31, 2018 Music legends Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul, & Mary) and Tom Paxton lauded Williams as ‘the best guitar player I’ve ever heard’ and ‘one of my (Paxton) all-time favorite pickers.’ It is no cliché’ to say that his music defies genre labeling, as his style has evolved from a lifetime of musical involvement ranging from beatnik trumpeter and folk revivalist banjo player to country, rock and R & B electric and steel-guitar player and chamber music composer.Williams spends the majority of his time touring the US, playing major music festivals and venues, which have included The Newport Folk Festival and Chicago’s Folkstage, hosted by Rich Warren of NPR’s nationally syndicated show, ‘The Midnight Special.’

The shows are being produced by Musical Theater Charities of Woodstock and will feature acclaimed Chicago-based musical theater historian Charles Troy. Mr. Troy's multimedia shows have been embraced by audiences nationwide since 2006. His shows combine scans of rare photos, original graphics, edited audio tracks and video clips, live performers, and a scripted narrative.
There will be a 1:30 pm matinee performance and a 7:00 pm evening performance for each show, each with a 90-minute running time.
Tickets are $10/each for the matinee shows and $15/each for the evening shows. Tickets can be purchased at the Woodstock Opera House Box Office, by phone (815-338-5300), or online (woodstockoperahouse.com).
