Playing tracks by
Brooks Williams was one of the first guitarists to be on our programme when we started out eight years ago. His dazzling guitar work, singing and songwriting continue to draw in the crowds. Now even with lockdown his home sessions manage to convey the warmth and high performance standards of seeing him live. Brooks tells us all about this and plays some songs specially recorded for this feature.
Brooks is a great advocate of Atkin Guitars and in the second half we talk to Alistair himself. He recounts how his luthiery has grown in the last 25 years from a one man operation to the nationally and internationally known brand. Alistair gives us an insight into how he gets his guitars to have that special vintage sound which makes them so desirable.
To finish the show Hector Gilchrist presents the latest 'The Song and the Story' and this time its one of our favorites, 'The Selkie'.
Presented and produced by Bev Harris.
