On our handful of great western Canadian shows to close out 2014, The Bills have had the very fine fortune to play with two great bassists – one of them the foundation of the band through JUNO-nominated recordings and thousands of miles of touring: Glen Manders, the other a rising young dude in the Canadian music scene, Nick Mentenko. Thanks Glen and Nick for so ably filling in for Scott, who’s off in Germany launching a new show.
But Scott will be back next Spring, when the band is set to dive into tracking for their next album. Until then, watch for the individual Bills in their various incarnations and pursuits. One of which is happily hunched over their home recording units, composing and arranging for the next beautiful batch of Bills tunes!
Watch for a chance to support the band’s upcoming recording by being among the first to pre-purchase the album. More info to come! Until then, happy days to all.
Yes yes yes! Folks, BillFest 2014 was a ball in Ottawa. Stewart Park and Home County Fair were Ontario peaks, too. Then to get a whole week on Saltspring Island as a band with about a dozen of the most amazing instructor colleagues on the planet, a true dream team of musical magic, along with 200 keen fiddle campers of all ages, well, heaven did truly descend to earth over the past two weeks! Thank you and happy baby birthing Zavellennahh!
And now what? The party just keeps on rolling! Come join us for a couple of Vancouver Island dates, back in the homeland, at the end of August, and then, why not track us down on what has become our annual September California jaunt. See the Shows page for info. We can’t wait to see you out there. Good times!
Come one come all, July 17th, to the fabulous Irving Greenberg Theatre (GCTC), Ottawa – 1233 Wellington West. An amazing line up of four celebrated west coast Canadian bands! Yes Please! Scroll down for more info below.
Thank you United Kingdom! The Bills are back. And it was a helluva good time!
Van mishaps, crazy hotels, great gigs and excellent people everywhere (many of whom we unfortunately couldn’t understand, we’re embarrassed to say!). Can’t wait to make it happen again. Check the Facebook page to get a little more insight into our madness.
Looking forward to our summer adventures back in Canada. Keep in touch everyone, and look out for The Bills in your ‘hood!
Yes, The Bills are coming back to the UK. Fifteen shows over a fantastic seventeen days, May 23 – June 7, far and wide, north and south (quite a bit of north!) hope to see you if you’re anywhere near. Check out the shows page to track our winding route. We promise acoustic pleasure, mushy peas and pints will be the order of the day!
Winter in the Midwestern US really is cold! But the people are oh so warm, and the crowds showed us a very very good time. A couple of shows with the fabulous Ruth Moody, and a swing up into St. Boniface were other highlights. The freeways in Minnesota left something to be desired, but the scenery and skating rinks were world class.
Look out in May for two weeks of roots folk ambassadorship around England and Scotland. The Bills return to the UK for a blast of festivals and concerts that are sure to help Spring turn to Summer in fine and funky folk fashion.
See the Shows page and see you soon!
