After last year’s majestic performance, we are delighted that Bill has agreed to play at the festival again. He’s a musician who keeps getting better and better – and since leaving The Coral in 2008, he has truly blossomed. West Kirby County Primary, his third solo record, is his finest work to date. A thrilling maturation of his song writing prowess, it’s a record which veers from hazy, sunset ballads to speaker-blowing hugeness, and live that all comes to life. Whether he’s beckoning you in with his quiet introspection or blasting your ears off with the rock songs, at every step he’s confirming the fact that he’s one of the finest songwriters.
