Bill was raised in a musical family in rural Alberta, Canada. When he was 2 years old, he was known to sleep behind the piano at country dances. His parents played dance music in community halls in beautiful farming country. The love of nature and of music and of people gathering for celebration has been with him for his whole life.
A multiple Canadian Juno Award winner, Bill has received international acclaim for his recordings and live performances. A mainstay on the international roots scene, life on the road is reflected in Bill's music - a combination of World Beat, Blues, Cajun, Celtic, Folk, Flamenco, Funk, Poetry and more.
Bill Bourne's latest album, Boon Tang, was released February 27, 2007 on Cordova Bay Records. .
