Bill McKinnon

Bill in one of his best known poses !!

Following his trial run last year Bill will be hosting a traditional "Hangover Workshop" on Saturday morning. (Air Banjo anyone?)

Many of you will already know Bill of course, he was here last year and as I remember stayed to the bitter end, or was it the end of the bitter?

You may also have had dealings with him at the Oxford Branch of The Music Room. Here's what they have to say about him:

The Oxford Music Room

"Bill has brought to the Music Room nearly 30 years experience and enjoyment of traditional music, playing semi-pro for many years before "taking the plunge" professionally some years ago.
One of the many bands Bill has worked with, "Life Of Reilly", of which he was the front man, was a highlight, with television appearances and live radio broadcasts. Bill has also performed solo on BBC local radio.
Currently playing with ceilidh band "McKinnon's Malt" among others, Bill still finds time to visit local folk clubs and run a "session" in his spare time. Bill plays 5 string banjo, tenor banjo, guitar and mandolin. He is also a narrowboat and real ale enthusiast.

Pop over to their site it's well worth it.

I'm pleased to have Bill on board for Miskin again. Bill is always ready to get a session going and is usually the last to leave.


In his other guise Bill is an integral part of The Tarrantella Ceilidh Band, he will not be getting much rest this weekend.
