Hello and Welcome!

Wildcat Bill

Hi There! Welcome to Madisonmusicblog! I am a singer songwriter interpreter of Americana Folk and Country music. I have many stories you can read – as you can see! I hope you find them enjoyable! But here is my story!

I began playing guitar in 1958 at the age of 14.

My musical career spans more than 50 years; from performing in the Folk Music venues of Boston, New York City and Montreal during the 1960’s, to playing the ski resorts and honky tonks of Northern New England from the 1970’s to the 1990’s.

In 1973, I released my first album called Sunday Mornin’ Hayride”. That album has been re-released by Riverman Records and Yoga Records and was voted in the top ten retro re-issues for 2009 by the Acid Archives.

In 1974, I formed Them Fargo Brothers which became New England’s Premier Country Rock Band, and I toured with the band until 1990. Here’s Them Fargo Brothers on Spotify:
