(Marion, OH) – Have you ever been listening to a song that you haven’t heard in a while and it takes you back to a life experience … first love, first kiss, first broken heart, a vacation or your wedding day? If so, you’re in for a treat during the 2019 Marion Popcorn Festival free performance on Thursday, September 5, 2019, 2:00 p.m., at the historic Palace Theatre with The Bill Foley Trio.
Bill Foley was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. As a teenager, he started playing the drums in the South High School Marching Band; he would spend hours practicing on a drum set in the basement of his home playing along to oldies records. While in a high school play he discovered the acoustic guitar which because his instrument of choice. Bill plays by ear and is completely self-taught. Bill’s parents thought he needed a “regular job.” For a few years, he worked as a paramedic for the Columbus Division of Fire and EMS. This gave him time to gain experience performing on his days off. After a few years, Bill quit his job as a paramedic and became a full time musician, which he continues today. Bill travels nationally, with even a few international trips. Locally, he performs almost nightly. The Bill Foley Trio performs the best music of the 50s, 60s and 70s, including early rock and roll favorites, one hit wonders, classic folk and all of the best from the singers/songwriters of those eras.
This event is sponsored by AAA, Aqua Ohio Water Company and Union Bank.
