Bill Thurman: Home
Welcome to Bill Thurman's Music Website! I was born in Nashville, TN and mainly grew up in Memphis where I went to high school and the U. of Memphis. I sell my CDs - Fiddlin My Life Away, The Celtic Collection, Pullin' A Few Strings, (which features the small harp AND violin) Fiddlin' For Fun, The Original Music, La Rotta (the single) and more by way of CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon.com, Rhapsody, Spotify and more online sites. I also sell the CDs the old fashioned way. Just contact me HERE and tell me your information and which ones you want and I will send them to you if you want to send me a bank check or money order.

A Great Compliment
July 25, 2014
I recently received one of the Greatest compliments from my fiddle student Matt who had to suddenly relocate to another part of the country for professional business. He told someone, " I learned more from him in 3 or 4 lessons than I learned from those other guys in 3 or 4 years."
Thank you, Matt! Big Time
