Keller Williams brings ‘ADM’ grooves to Blind Pig

It might not be quite springtime yet, but nothing brings out those summer vibes quite like a little bit of jammy bluegrass. Join solo artist Keller Williams at the Blind Pig March 16 for a night of up-tempo grooves.

Keller Williams describes himself as “acoustic dance music” and somehow with his variation of genres – bluegrass, jazz, funk, folk and more – nothing seems more appropriate. Williams uses live sampling and looping, a technique that’s typically found in Electronic Dance Music, and brings it to an acoustic stage.

Williams has been putting in his touring miles since 1995, making him a favorite among fans of The String Cheese Incident and Perpetual Groove.

Williams is currently touring on his most recent full-length album, ‘Raw,’ which released Jan. 20.
