Brooks Williams with opener TBA
Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, Brooks Williams is a mean finger-picker and a stunning slide guitarist.
Brooks Williams hails from Statesboro, Georgia, the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell. Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, he’s a mean finger-picker and a stunning slide guitarist. Plus, “he has a beautiful voice,” says AmericanaUK, “that you just melt into.” Not one easy to pigeon-hole, Brooks’ music is the love-child of country-blues and Americana. fRoots says, “Soulful Americana, full-on blues and tasty rootsy grooves. He really rocks!”
Advance tickets are $10. Visit the website at oldsloopcoffeehouse.org, John Tarr Store in Rockport, or The Bookstore of Gloucester. The suggested contribution at the door is $12 for adults, $5 for those age 18 and under, and $24 for families.

There is paid parking on School Street, Main Street, Broadway, and other downtown streets. There are kiosks on School Street and Main Street, and word is kiosks will soon replace the meters on Broadway Rates and time limits vary. The kiosks accept credit cards and quarters, and the meters accept only quarters. The paid spaces are almost always occupied in the summer when the weather is good.
There is free parking on the streets just out of the downtown area on School Street, Main Street, High Street, and others. Many of these spaces are a short walk from the church. These spaces are also in high demand during tourist season.
There is parking for Rockport residents on T Wharf and in the lot near Town Hall just off Broadway, both of which are a short walk from the church. Do not park in resident-only areas unless your car bears a Rockport parking sticker. The Rockport police are zealous about defending resident-only parking.
Rockport offers a Park ‘n Ride service during the busiest times of the year. The Park ‘n Ride lot is adjacent to the transfer station on upper Main Street, about a mile from the downtown. Parking is free, and the Cape Ann Transportation Authority offers an inexpensive shuttle service between the Park ‘n Ride lot and the downtown.
