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 his entire life.

Bill 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 Tannahill Weavers, Bourne & MacLeod, Shannon Johnson, Hans Stamer & Andreas Schuld, Tri-Continental, Eivor Palsdottir (Faroe Islands), Bob Ensemble and The Free Radio Band. Bill loves to collaborate with other musicians!

He has attained award status in Canada for his many collaborations with other artists as well as for his own solo projects.
