Bill Knight, Poet, Singer-Songwriter, Storyteller, Weaver of Tall Tales and Short Truths layers his authentic contemporary Cape-Folk music with poetic lyrics of depth and intensity. His “Kaapse Mengsel”, written in a characteristic Bredie of English and Kombuistaal (the dialect of the Western Cape) provides a personal but universal insight into the not so ordinary lives of everyday people, drawing strongly on Myth, Mystery, Legend and Folk- Lore.
Bill freely admits to being a “KhakieBoer”- half Brit, half Boer- with all the tensions that such a blend suggests, but his Fireside Ballads and Torch-songs are more universal than any divisions that might exist.
Bill is currently working on his 9th Album, in collaboration with fellow Scarecrow, Chris Davidson.
