In the coming days I will be adding some great pictures and video Bill took while in Geilo.

Until then...Skohl!


2010 Full Moon Concert:  Geilo, Norway

Bill designed the concert stage pictured below for the first time and amazed everyone when he put a

Norwegian Ice Bird on top! 

Also new this year was the Norwegian Ram Horn he replicated which made such a

beautiful sound he had to make several!

2008 Full Moon Concert:  Geilo, Norway



2007 Full Moon Concert:  Geilo, Norway


Bill spent 10 days in Norway on top of a mountain in Geilo creating everything from logos to igloos to instruments; but the ice guitar was by far his favorite project.  The ice used for the event was farmed from a lake on top of the mountain and transported by snowmobiles. 

In addition to making several other instruments for musicians around the world he also created an ice throne for the Princess of Norway from 600 year old glacier ice!
