From Bill Bourne
Bill Bourne has been involved in music and celebration since he was a small child sleeping behind the piano at country dances where his parents played in the band. His mother played guitar at dances before he was born, resting the guitar on his little body while she was still pregnant... the sound of the guitar and the dance rhythms have always been with him. His professional music career has spanned more than 3 decades. From his early days as a member of The Tannahil Weavers, Bourne has toured the world, earned two JUNO awards, and multiple Western Canada Music Awards. In that time he has toured the western world and released several recordings. He actively writes, records, and tours. These songs, taken from Bourne’s latest offering Songs From A Gypsy Caravan, showcase his unique guitar playing and vocal style, story-telling folk songwriting layered with sultry blues influences.
