Like a fiery blaze of orange, Bill MacKay is burning bright. Hot off the release of his second solo album, Fountain FireBill's on tour, traversing the Midwest, armed only with his picker's prowess and deep harmonic inspiration. And that's more than enough! As Dusted put it, "MacKay makes his instrument express joy and wonder and agony like a voice, only more so." Bill digs deep within himself on Fountain Fire: showcasing a precise evolution of songwriting, arrangements, even singing--in an arc that comprises a full album of the good stuff!

This kinda playing only gets better live! Fortunately for you, Bill's got more dates forthcoming on the West Coast next month. Beyond that, his well-worn atlas is sure to get a bit more frayed; meantime, don't miss the dates below!
