Bill Cope
(San Jose, CA)
(Multi-Instrumentalist, Vocals, Sound)

Bill Cope is a multi-instrumentalist who began playing music at the age of six, and has performed on 73 instruments to date (it’s not as hard as it sounds, but he feels really lucky to be built this way!). He’s made many trips to the Balkans and Turkey, and studied and performed with many wonderful musicians, there as well as in the states. He has also played international folk dance music for many years.

He is currently Director of the San Francisco Kolo Festival. During the pandemic, he has aided and abetted live music (truly live as well as pre-recorded) at many, many events. Also during the pandemic he has been leading online zoom-shops in Balkan and Turkish music, weekly. Please see for more info!
