About Bill Oliver

On Bill Oliver's album, Better Things to Do , Bill writes: "These songs represent a lot of miles, concerts, and campfires. They're dedicated to the Rachel Carsons and John Muirs of our time who are fighting to preserve the diversity and integrity of our unique little planet from the bombs, bulldozers, and boardrooms of blind progress."

Bill also authored another John Muir song, Me and Stickeen , about Muir's adventure with a dog on a glacier, and in 2005, Hooray for Hetch Hetchy, a recollection of Hetch Hetchy as it was in John Muir's day, and a prognosis for how it could be so again.

Bill Oliver and his friends are available for rollicking eco-concerts to school and community groups anywhere.
