Aclassically trained vocalist, Bill’s voice can span four octaves as a high Cbaritone. While the Baron von Trapp role in the Sound of Music is his favorite,Bill performs songs from Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables and Fiddler onthe Roof. His forte, however, is as a Big Band crooner-- “I was definitelyinfluenced by the Vegas scene.” Join Bill’s fiercely loyal following for an evening that includes thesounds of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and the whole big band era.
Baile Daire (BAL-iah DAR-rah), a Raleigh, NC based bandpresenting a mixture of Irish and other folk music on acoustic instruments,prides itself on its versatility. They are equally at home ripping through aset of Irish jigs or reels as they are rendering the simple beauty of a slowair or lament. They perform both legacy and contemporary ballads from the Irishtradition as well as comical pub songs that are best accompanied by a swingingpint of Guinness. In concert, they demonstrate their love for Celtic music, butdo so from an American perspective.
