Bill Thurman: Home

Welcome to Bill Thurman's Music Website!                                           My original home was in Nashville, TN and later I mainly grew up in Memphis where I went to high school and the U. of Memphis. I have been a professional musician now for 50 years. I played my first professional gig, a recording session, with Noel Gilbert and other Memphis string players when I was 16 and still in high school. The session was in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.                                             Here I sell CDs, downloads, streaming sales and more by way of CD Baby, iTunes,, Rhapsody, Spotify and more online sites. You may also contact me at the site here or by using:                                                           This email I see practically 24/7  

I am still young and alive through the power and beauty of music!



I TEACH THE FIDDLE - Violin - Viola, Piano And Guitar throughout ARKANSAS. I play blues, swing, pop songs, ethnic songs, Irish and all sorts of old fiddle tunes, some Renaissance music, light classical music for weddings, and compose and produce music. I teach fiddle workshops and classical string workshops as well. If you would like to hear some samples of my tunes and songs, just scroll down further and you will see the link to ITunes and CD Baby.  Some Kinda Blue and more CDs are available at

March 22nd Anniversary - March 22, 2017

On this date a year ago the surgical team from Smilow Cancer Hospital performed major surgery on me, removed a sarcoma tumor and saved my life. Quite a few people had a hand in saving my life. I feel like this is a new birthday. A re-birth day!

New CD coming soon! - March 4, 2017

My latest album on CD and at CD Baby will be ready at the very end of March or the first several days of April. Its title: Nothin But Fiddle And A Sarcoma Survivor. It will (as the title implies) have nothing but solo fiddle/violin on 16 tracks. A nice collection of fiddle tunes and old songs. I recorded all of them while still undergoing chemotherapy in Little Rock, AR. You may inquire here about the timing. Stay tuned!

I'm Past Chemo Now - February 27, 2017

I had my last chemo treatment just several days ago. Chemotherapy can have horrible feeling side effects on some individuals. Frankly I'm glad it's over for a while. I hope that I won't have to go through it again in the future. I've got plenty of new music in my head and it will be coming round more and more this Spring and Summer. Stay tuned!
