Bill and Brad are also members of a traditional music collective known as Tethera.  The five members of this group bring their voices, over a dozen instruments (some archaic and unusual) and their unique musical experiences to the interpretation and performance of traditional music from the British Isles, Europe and North America.  They appear as a "big band", or in different configurations of duo, trio or quartet.

Bill is an active session player in Ontario, New York State, Newfoundland, and anywhere else he travels.  He is a member of The Great Lakes Ceili Band and The Hamilton Contra Band, playing for dancers in Ontario and New England. 

Bill is a chorister in Hamilton Sings! Community Choir and is often asked to lead a song at his local session at the Corktown Tavern

For many years until their retirement Bill was the lead musician for the Oakville Ale & Sword Long Sword dancers.



Brad keeps busy on both sides of the pond.  He is the Artistic Director Of the Mill Race Folk Society, organizing pub sessions, concerts and special events, and for its entire 26 year run, the annual Mill Race Festival of Traditional Folk Music.  Brad received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal for his service to his community and traditional music.

Brad spends part of each year in Stroud, Gloucestershire, UK where he is an active session player and Morris musician.  He also organizes the annual Stroud Folk Weekend, a wonderful grass roots event that happens in the streets and pubs of his adopted home. And somehow he also finds time to perform and record with the folk trio Cotillion.
