“If you’ve been wondering, “Where are all the good lion-wrestling, Buddhist monk, Americana singer-songwriters?” It’s time you meet Bill Bloomer. The singer, guitarist, and songwriter is keeping the troubadour tradition alive, performing on two or three continents a year. He may be playing at a festival in Terlingua one month, and then busking in France on the way to festivals in the United Kingdom and house concerts in Scandinavia. So what does he sound like? Sinewy guitar lines played on a vintage 1930 “The Gibson,” melodies that stick to your ribs, lyrics that can evoke a laugh or a tear (sometimes in the same song), and a voice like bourbon; strong, bracing, and with a sweet tinge of honey in songs telling a story like the whisper of a friend.”
You are in for a treat with this one, folks. We had to unfortunately cancel on Bill last year and the year before, but we are happy to be bringing him back. There’s more to Bill Bloomer than I could do justice on here, so give the following links a click and enjoy the many wonders of this wonderful troubadour:
