Skinny Williams Jr. featuring Claudia Williams and Tessy Lou Williams
The last name 'Williams' carries a lot of weight in the legacy of country/folk music in the Montana music scene. Family matriarch, Claudia Williams has been performing and writing music ever since 1986 when she co-founded the band Montana Rose with Kenny Williams. Williams’ beautifully rich and honey-seasoned voice combined with her strong, folksy presence has established herself as a beloved Montana tradition. Meanwhile, her daughter Tessy Lou Williams has been carving a name out for herself in the highly competitive Texas music scene with her power house vocal and exceptional songwriting. With almost a decade under her belt in the Austin music scene and a new project as a solo artist, one thing is unmistakably clear: lovers of country music should keep their eyes on Tessy Lou Williams. Not to be overshadowed by all the talent in the Williams family Luke Williams, also known as Skinny Williams Jr., has also spent the past 10 years living/playing in Austin, TX. With most of those years were spent touring the U.S. with his former band, The Canvas People. He has recorded and played live with many different artists throughout his musical career, but has recently started working on his his first album “Redemption” which will be released 11/20/21. Luke pushes outside of the family's more country-folk stylings with his own brand of songwriting that leans more towards blues, soul, folk and rock n' roll traditions. Join us for a beautiful night of music celebrating the legacy of the Williams family and the release of Lukes first album.
