Phillious Williams was born in the 17th century at the time of the bubonic plague. A chronic bigamist and drunk, his life was mostly filled with misery and pain. Through the course of his pained and weary life, he became a razor-sharp, bitter but also charming and witty storyteller. Drowning in a shipwreck at the end of his 29 short
years, all evidence of his life was thought lost until found in the wrecks of the ‘Sabare Clar’ at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, was his memoirs and stories... Here we put them to song…
Phillious Williams, a man in whom the word ‘persiflage’ finds the perfect home.
