Sunny Bill

Next in our brief series, in every sense, of old faces who are new to here we present Maryland's own - and also Knaresborough's own - Bill Callahan. Take it away, Bill!

"Too Many Birds" - Bill Callahan

"Bowery" - Bill Callahan

The list of other famous sons of Knaresborough consists only of Rene from 'Allo 'Allo and a bloke who briefly played keyboards for Simply Red. Neither of those could be considered conducive to a good moaning so let's stick with Bill.


  1. Had to look up the Knaresborough connection
    Surprised that he hasn't graced your pages before

  2. Just picked up Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest in a Dingwall charity shop for 25p!

    1. I may have misunderstood your comment, but its upsetting to learn that Scottish agricultural workers are having to go on the game and tout for trade in charity shops in order to make ends meet

  3. Sir
    Am I alone in thinking that this song has been heavily influenced by the Goodies "Father Christmas Do Not Touch"
