“The audience loved every minute and afterwards begged them to return to the stage…. ” – Big Wheel Blues Club, Isle Of Man

“One of the best nights ever. Great songs, great fun and wonderful musicianship. Do not hesitate. Go and see Brooks and Aaron while you can. You will have the best time.” – Grateful Fred’s, The Atkinson, Southport

“An outstanding performance of sublime quality, entertaining and beautifully paced. Two musicians at the top of their game.” – RAFA Club, Cleethorpes

Brooks Williams & Aaron Catlow create joyous and virtuosic music that not only tugs at the heart-strings but also gets you up on your feet. AmericanaUK writes, “how such a complete and sensational sound can come from just two voices and instruments is awe-inspiring.”

A year on from their debut tour, the two have been wowing audiences at venues and festivals like St David’s Hall, Lichfield Guildhall, Folk In A Field Festival, Cumberland Arms, Ely Festival, The Folk House and The Atkinson, to name but a few.

With three albums under their belt, Ghost Owl in 2021 (nominated “Instrumental Album Of The Year” by Fatea), Ready For The Times in 2022 (“a cracker,” says Living Tradition) and Greens and Blues in 2023, Brooks Williams and Aaron Catlow are moving deeper into their sound. There is literally no one else on the scene playing this kind of music. You see fiddle and guitar and you think you know what to expect. But with Williams and Catlow, you get something completely different. They are a one-off. After virtually every gig they get asked to return for a future engagement.

Aaron Catlow is half of the Bristol-based duo Hawes And Catlow, with guitarist-singer Kit Hawes. He is also the fiddler in UK festival favourite Sheelanagig. Catlow’s other credits including playing with Grammy Award-nominated Yola, Mad Dog Mcrea and Afro Celt Sound System.

Cambridge UK-based, Georgia US-born, Brooks Williams has a long-standing solo career in both North America and the UK and is also known for his collaborations with the likes of Dan Walsh, Sloan Wainwright, Hans Theessink, Boo Hewerdine, Guy Davis and Rab Noakes, among others. He is named one of WUMB-FM Boston’s Top 100 All-Time Artists. Fatea refers to him as “one of those select few ‘how on earth does he do it?!’ artists.”

Not only are Brooks Williams and Aaron Catlow masters of their respective instruments, but the music they create, says Folk Radio UK, is “a thing of beauty!”
