Bill Bynum & Co. at Green Wood Coffee House
With songs both traditional and original, and a sound that's at once as comfortable as old jeans and as fresh as a new blade of grass, Bill Bynum & Co. is a band that’s easy to love and hard to quit. The band’s core of rhythm guitar, fiddle, Dobro, bass, and harmony vocals can lean into country, veer toward bluegrass, or take listeners on a unique journey through Bill’s original songs.
Although a Detroit native, Bill's musical roots are in the South. His parents migrated from Black Oak, Arkansas to work in Detroit's steel industry in the 1940s, bringing with them their love for bluegrass and country music. Bill grew up listening to artists such as Johnny Cash and Buck Owens on Detroit's country radio station, "The Big D." Detroit rock inspired Bill's early musical career. But in 1999, Bill turned on the radio and heard, "Yours Forever Blue" by Steve Earle and the Del McCoury Band. From that moment on he found himself with a nonstop desire to hear and play that kind of song. Soon he was writing them, too. Bill is a first-prize winner in the Metro Detroit Songwriting Showcase, with his song‚ "Lovin' You." He has collaborated with bluegrass legend Pete Goble, an International Bluegrass Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award winner. Bill lives for the joy of entertaining his audience. A true showman! Bill's band includes Scott Kendall on bass, Bill Arnold on Dobro, and Hessie Mae Hasheian on fiddle. Sure to be a fun night!
