Bill Sutton

Bed & Breakfast
Musical Guest of Honor

Bed & Breakfast is the eclectic duo of Bill and Brenda Sutton. These friendly, charming, entertainers-for-hire specialize in Irish pub songs and unusual modern folk/acoustic music from songwriters like Christine Lavin, Jim Stafford, Steve Goodman, and Harry Chapin. The couple also performs a number of original songs.

Bill is accomplished on guitar, mandolin, flute, penny whistle, and he's working on the violin and uilleann pipes. Brenda also plays guitar and whistles, but her forte is on the Irish frame drum called a bodhrán. Both Bill and Brenda are talented singer/songwriters with numerous credits and awards. They were inducted into the Filk Hall of Fame in 2001. Bill won Pegasus Awards for Best Performer in 1986 and Best Techie Song for his uproarious country space song Stray Dog Man in 1989, as well as nominations in several other categories. Brenda garnered her share of Pegasus Awards as well, winning Best Song for Strangers No More in 2001 and Best Spine-chilling Song in 2002 for In a Gown Too Blue. She also plays with the award-winning Three Weird Sisters.
