I am delighted to welcome Huw Williams to the agency. I have known him since his Huw and Tony days, and long admired his songwriting. Everyone knows him for Rosemary's Sister but he has a tremendous fund of intelligent songs from We stayed Awake to I can Jump Puddles. Huw and Tony toured relentlessly and when they retired from the road they left a huge hole behind them.

Now, at last, Huw is available for solo gigs with his guitar, his bucket full of songs, and his trademark drollery.

 

Biography

Huw Williams began his professional career as a singer songwriter. He toured and recorded as part of the duo Huw and Tony Williams, whose songs were covered by many other artists in the USA and Europe, including Fairport Convention whose version of Summer Before the War and Simon Nicol’s Rosemary’s Sister brought him to a much wider audience. He has also worked as a broadcaster producing and presenting programs for BBC in the UK.

You can book Huw’s one man show- Birth of an Accidental Musician featuring foot tapping melodies, deeply moving songs and hilarious humour. Join Huw as he tells you the story of how a woman working in the dole office accidentally changed his life, how he wrote a song about a train that he still doesn’t understand and why £2,000 mysteriously turned up in his bank account.


‘Well-crafted and finely-honed songs, each one an absolute belter. Many songwriters could take a lesson from his brilliant chord progressions and his thoughtful and entertaining lyrics, but his magic touch just about seals it and cajoles the listening public to come back for more – and more and more.’ - Folk Wales
