Canadian Juno Award winner Bill Bourne has received international acclaim for his recordings and live performances. A veteran of the international blues & roots music scene, life on the road is reflected in Bill’s music – powerful rhythms and soulful songs, steeped in blues, world beat, cajun, celtic, folk, latin, funk, poetry and more. Bill Bourne was raised in a musical family in rural Alberta. 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.

Bill Bourne began his professional music career in 1975. In 1982 his first album was released by Radio Canada International. He has toured and recorded solo, and with Scotland’s Tannahil Weavers, Bourne & Macleod, Shannon Johnson, Hans Stamer & Andreas Schuled, Tri-Continental, Eivor Palsdottir (Faroe Islands), Bop Ensemble, The Free Radio Band and free improvisation group Trancescapes.
