Local guy Will (all the way from Littleport near Ely) is an up-and-coming acoustic folk-country singer/songwriter whose music is heavily influenced by the 1950s & 60s. Will’s songs are about current issues but are set in the Old West & all revolve around a band of outlaws. Will will be making his first appearance at Ely Folk Festival at the Local Bands Showcase in marquee 2 on Friday night.

Combining the Old West with Will Shakespeare and acoustic guitars, Just William has been described as ‘a young brave with a six-string’. William’s musical style is acoustic/folk/rock/country, influenced by 50s and 60s artists like Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, as well as The La’s and Elliott Smith.
