Bill started singing folk songs at Rothley Folk Club in Leicestershire, England, where he first met Al Stacey (Swigger) who now runs the Thirsty Dog Folk Club. In 1995 Bill emigrated to New Zealand where he was pleased to find a flourishing folk scene in Auckland and to meet some of the best people a stranger in a strange land could hope for.

It was in the Auckland folk clubs that he performed his first guest spots, and in the early 2000s he teamed up with Suzanne Timms and Peter Scott as Rolling Thunder, named after a book about Karekare. They sang mostly British traditional, so not very thunderous! After some four years the group dissolved and Bill reverted to solo performing, adding a number of Rolling Thunder’s songs to his already extensive repertoire.

Bill has been involved in several Folk Club projects over the years, two of which have particularly stood out for him. “North to South” was a musical show put together as a Tony Smyth initiated idea by a group of Titirangi Folk Club members, and performed at both the Auckland and Wellington Folk Festivals. Last year’s Alistair Hullet tribute at the Auckland Folk Festival also involved several Titirangi Folk Club members. It was a joy for Bill to be involved in both of these projects.

Bill is a regular at all of the folk clubs in the Auckland region, where he is a popular, respected and entertaining performer. A Bill Morrison guest spot is always sure to please.
