Bill is taking an extended break from touring and recording at the moment, due to being very busy enjoying motherhood at home in Sunderland. Dominic is now a year old (born December 2003), and Bill and Chris are expecting a second baby in July 2005. Bill may take on some gigs from 2006 onwards but until then will not be touring.

In January 2005, Bill is recording some vocals for Karen Tweed's forthcoming solo album - more details here when we have them.

Bill was involved in a couple of tours and other projects in 2004. In May, a short tour in Japan (Tokyo and Nagoya) was very successful, performing as a double bill with David Munnelly and Gavin Ralston. In July, Bill performed at Rudolstadt Folk Festival in Germany, and Bill is featured on the festival's live CD Rudolstadt 2004 (HD20046) singing Brian Bedford's song "What am I Bid?"
