Scottish musician who formed the psychedelic rock group, "The Incredible String Band," along with Mike Heron in 1965, Glasgow, Scotland. Some of the group's LP's included, "Changing Horses," 1969. The group also included Williamson's sometime girlfriend Licorice McKechnie. A singer and musician, he can play 40 instruments, including the guitar, flute and mandolin. During some years, he was an active Scientologist.

After the band split up in 1974, he began living in Los Angeles and, for a while, turned his attention to writing, co-writing an espionage novel, "The Glory Trap". By 1976 he had returned to music, forming The Merry Band with Sylvia Woods (Celtic harp), Jerry McMillan (fiddle), and Chris Caswell (flutes, and wire-strung harp). They toured extensively for three years throughout the US, Canada, and Europe, and released three albums "Journey’s Edge", "American Stonehenge", and "A Glint At The Kindling".
