Bill Metts started playing fingerstyle guitar during the Country Blues revival of the ’60s and fell in love with the music of Taj Mahal, Mississippi John Hurt, Doc Watson and others of that ilk. Just about everything he has done since has been in that down-home finger-picking style. Metts has performed at the annual Mississippi John Hurt Blues Festival in Avalon, Mississippi, at the historic Blue Front Cafe, and at the famous Ground Zero in Clarksdale, Mississippi. Though he has dabbled in all types of music, today he prefers to play and sing original tunes or traditional Americana roots music.
Bruce Gallant is accomplished singer/songwriter. According to Gallant, “I started writing songs in my late 20’s and have never stopped. Anything of importance in my life is in my songs.
Writing and music are like breathing to me, they are what I need to get me through my life”. Bruce is the driving force behind the ACMA Singer/Songwriter Circle which takes place every Sunday in Fort Myers..
