Warner Williams’s debut at Republic There’s a new (famous!) face taking over Republic’s beloved Blue’s Monday! Starting Jan 5, Warner Williams, a Piedmont-style blues legend, will be playing alongside his musical partner, Jay Summerour. His new role is especially meaningful because Williams is a Takoma Park native.
