USCG Merchant Marine Master, Captain Billy derives his music from his salt sea life. His father was US Navy fighting for liberty thru all of WWll, his great-grandfather was Captain Charles Fangman, master of tall ships from 1860 to 1881. Billy Bones has over 26 years in the charter trade in the Pacific Northwest and the Caribbean, Bones is now almost making a living on Maui, writing and performing his unique style of maritime music.

With his anchor set for a while in Hawaii, he has the longest-running original, singer / songwriter show on Maui, performing for six years at the world famous Pioneer Inn on the waterfront in old Lahina. The PI is the oldest bar/ hotel in all of Hawaii with real harpoons hanging on the walls and a large classic painting of three naked women. Arrrr! Just the kine of place to hoist a pint and recall the wild and wonderous days of hunting the great Baleen whale.

Billy Bones has performed for U.S. Navy conventions on the mainland, at the Maui County Fair, many years at the Seattle Folklife Festival, boat shows, and in dark musty corners of waterfront bars on mini tours in four countries. SAIL magazine recognizes him as "the Northwest Poet" and has included his music in their "Essential Gear for Sailors" catalog for 7 years.

For booking information or to actually sail with him in the Caribbean or Pacific Northwest you can contact him directly at: (360) 739-1814 www.captainbillybones.com

I loved this CD. In a Gordon Lightfoot/Mac Davis style, the words were amazing a
Billy Bones combines the sashbuckeling of the pirate songs with the gentle, romance of the sailing songs. The words are great and the varity of instruments is refreshing!
