Bill Sheffield was guitar legend Roy Buchanons vocalist, touring with Roy
throughout the United States and featuring on Roys Polydor album "In the
Beginning". His experience of working for blues greats such as Big Mama
Thornton, Fabulous Thunderbirds, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters (Godfather to
Bills daughter!), Bonnie Raitt and Stevie Ray Vaughan (it¹s a little known
fact that SRV actually opened for Bill Sheffield once!) and his laid back
yet energy laden stage style has made him many friends in Europe where he is
always made very welcome.

Expect everything from Hank Williams through Robert Johnson, Blind Willie McTell, Broonzy,
even REM, all mixed in with his  brilliant self-written songs about his own quirky and humourous
observations on life!  Accompanied on acoustic Bass by Dave Saunders from
award winning and festival headlining blues band The Producers this is a
heaven-made pairing of musicians!
