Once famously hailed as “the best ‘live’ act I have ever seen” by a reviewer in Maverick magazine, The Bills have blown away concert-goers and festival crowds around the globe.
Last time they were in the UK for a main stage appearance at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections festival, one of the best music critics in the business, the hugely-influential Rob Adams, writing in The Herald, praised them as “the biggest blast of fresh air to come out of Canada since The Band.”
Known the world over for their exquisite songcraft, superb arrangements and dynamic live performances, The Bills feature an all-star line-up of talent from Canada's west coast. Renowned for their instrumental virtuosity, tight vocal arrangements, exuberant live shows, evocative song-writing and innovative interpretations of trad tunes, they have racked up a string of Canadian music awards and built a devoted fan following that extends across North America and Europe.
Champagne corks have been popping on this side of the Atlantic since it was announced that they are returning to tour here.
Since forming in 1996, the band has thrilled audiences at many major festivals, gifted multi-instrumentalists who are masters at bridging the gulf between stage and audience. They have a brand new album out which has been winning them great exposure in the UK.
