We start our 2019 season at The Swallow Theatre with Rouse, Ye Women! a new folk ballad about Glasgow-born Mary Macarthur and the women chainmakers. Women chainmakers in the Black Country in the 1900s started work at the forge as children and spent their entire lives making chains.

Brooks Williams’ music is the love-child of country-blues and Americana. Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, Brooks is a mean finger-picker and a stunning slide guitarist. Plus, “he has a beautiful voice,” says AmericanaUK, “that you just melt into.” Just when you think he can’t sing a blues-ier note, he sings it.
