Billy Cardine's innovative work with the slide guitar(s) has lead him as both a performer and educator around the world, as well as to some of our country's most revered venues, such as Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, and the Ryman Auditorium and major festivals, such as Bonnaroo, Merlefest and Rockygrass. As an active member of the bluegrass community, Billy's dobro playing was recently featured on Jerry Douglas' latest production, Southern Filibuster, honoring one of the forefathers of the instrument. His distinct voice on all things slide has lead him to collaborations with Led Zeppelin's own, John Paul Jones and world renowned, Edgar Meyer in his Porous Borders of Music brainchild. Billy's band, The Biscuit Burners, won national and international awards and recognition. His curiosity and drive led him to Kolkatta, India where he began studying under his now guru, India's acclaimed Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya. Back in the states, Billy's unique stylings and expertise attracted innovative analog music mogul, Moog Music. During 2010, he helped design their first electric slide guitar which he debuted at MoogFest that same year. Well known for his memorable compositions as well as his playing, his music has been featured on The History Channel's "Our Generation", BBC World's "Destination Music", and PBS' "RoadTrip Nation". Billy is always true to his personal quest to eliminate technical boundaries and connect to an honest expression of himself.
