Kicking off the 2013 to 2014 Arts Station concert series is perennial favourite Tim Williams!

Imagine, if you can, a front porch where Robert Johnson, Hank Williams, Hula Hattie, Flaco Jimenez and Bob Marley meet often and discover just how much they have in common. Tim’s music would fit right in. Williams is a blues-based singer / songwriter / multi – instrumentalist. He is a 40 year veteran of the ‘Roots’ music scene in North America, roots which stretch back to the coffee-house scene of his native California in the 1960’s. Tim’s live solo shows are a trip down the river of North American music. Blues, ragtime, old-time country with dashes of Mexican and Hawaiian influence, performed on a variety of string instruments. Settling in Canada in the 1970s, Tim is a studio musician, producer, and a performer in constant demand, having played in concert halls and clubs across the country, from Halifax to Vancouver Island and everywhere in-between.
