Bill Eadson Singer - Songwriter - Storyteller Bill has been writing songs for most of his life, but only recently have these musical tales been aired to a wider public. Former singer/guitarist with folk/rock combo Trimaran, Bill was the originator and co-writer of the audio visual folk musical “Wot the Folk” which told the musical stories of some well-known (and some lesser-known) characters and events that have become the musical history of these islands. In his own songwriting, Bill draws inspiration from folk, rock, reggae, jazz and latin influences. His musical stories relate the extraordinary lives of real people, in an accessible and kaleidoscopic collection of memorable songs. Sometimes performing with The Outland Revenue but equally at home playing solo, Bill’s music will take you on an unforgettable journey.
