Bill Roberson, aka “Billy Button,” is one of those well-kept secret treasures. People of the Central Sierra have enjoyed Bill’s warm and sweet family programs since his move to the mountains in 1986. Since his childhood Bill has played and sang for his supper. One of ten children, he figured out that being able to sing and play music would come in handy.
And it has! Bill has a playlist that goes almost to the moon and back again. And these are all songs that you and I get to sing with him. “If you want a good life, you’d best sing every day,” says Bill.
His music appears on BZ’s first recording with Cynthia Restivo. Then in 2012 he and Cynthia released “Blackberry Love,” another collection of songs and stories. Plus, Bill has at least two CDs that he has produced. First and foremost a loving dad and family man, Bill’s gift is to bring loving magic to families everywhere through song.
