Bill Adair is a highly respected singer/songwriter and guitarist from Glasgow whose music has been influenced by themes that have been constant in his life. Work, family, love, life, death, loss and redemption are all found in his songs. Whether it is a song about the tragic aftermath of a mining disaster, or a scathing comment about a young woman's unfair dismissal from her job as a Church of Scotland minister, Bill's original songs draw on a lifetime of experience and the cross currents of folk, blues and celtic music.
Equally at home singing a traditional Scottish ballad, playing blues from the Mississippi Delta or singing one of his own songs, Bill's material and performances draws on influences from traditional Piedmont and Delta Blues, and from contemporary writers and players like Ralph McTell, Stefan Grossman and Eric Bibb.
Bill is in constant demand as a solo singer at festivals and folk clubs all over the UK and has also gained a reputation as an interpreter of the poems and songs of Robert Burns and performs at Burns Suppers throughout Scotland.
