About Bill Harley

"Bill Harley has the uncanny ability to reaffirm life for listeners, be they five or fifty. Humor, mepathy, intelligence and reality all radiate from his work and from him." - Penguin Books

A Grammy award winning artist, Bill uses song and story to paint a vibrant and hilarious picture of growing up, schooling and family life. His work spans the generation gap, reminds us of our common humanity and challenges us to be our very best selves. A prolific author and recording artist, Bill is also a regular commentator for NPR's "All Things Considered" and featured on PBS. He joined the National Storytelling Network's Circle of Excellence in 2001 and tours nationwide as an author and performing artist.

Trying to describe Bill is often as funny as attending one of his concerts. One person will call him a singer/songwriter, another a storyteller. People know Bill from his books, his theatrical plays, his concerts, his workshops - or maybe even as a keynote speaker at a conference. With twenty-five recordings of songs and stories and six children's books to his credit, Bill's humorous yet meaningful work chronicles the lives of children at school and at home.

Bill tours nationally as a solo artist as well as with his band, the "Troublemakers"or with his pianist/co-conspirator, Keith Munslow. Armed with his guitar, songs, stories and slightly off center mind, Bill is the kind of performer you just have to see in person!
