Bill Bourne - Short Bio
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.
Bourne began his professional music career in 1975. In 1982 his
