Bill is a poet/composer who has been involved under various guises on the folk scene for forty five years. The Sheepskin Knows Band was his first foray followed by Bobcats and Black Sheep.
He joined Madcap fifteen years ago as percussionist and is a founder member of Maggoty. Bill currently plays with Mike in the duo Corvus where he has been allowed to extend the parameters of words and music. One fd his poems has even been banned by the BBC. Well, by just one programme on one radio station: Radio Shropshire.
Bill is also a resident and committee member of Northwich Folk Club where he is always looking to engage young people with folk music.
