Bill Musser

Bill Musser grew up on a farm near Spring Grove, MN, and was raised by parents and grandparents who still spoke Norwegian, though the families had been in the United States for 3 generations. His mother loved music, listening to the hits from the 30s and 40s and playing them on the piano. She instilled that same “ear playing” ability in Bill, who, after spending many happy hours dancing to old-time music at the Highlandville Schoolhouse in his later teen years, said “yes” to Beth Rotto’s invitation to start a band, Foot-Notes. Bill is now in his 28th year with the band.
