Will Gillespie is a Singer-Songwriter, Musician and Entertainer.

Raised in the small gold mining town of South Porcupine, Northern Ontario, Will Gillespie now calls Hamilton home. He is a finger-picking travelling troubadour with an eclectic repertoire of original songs from whimsical ditties to heart-breaking ballads to foot-stomping rockers, exploring Folk, Folk-Rock, Jazz, Blues, Rock & Roll, Cabaret, Waltzes and other timeless, classic musical styles.

He was also the author, composer, director and lead performer of the award-winning musicals "Swingin' in St. John's," and "Diamond in the Rough" and the songwriter, lead guitarist and frontman for the bands the SALTCOATS, Old World Romance, Static & Snow and the Will Gillespie Band.

Now he is releasing his latest full-length album "MINE! True Stories and Legends of the Porcupine Gold Rush" that tells harrowing real-life tales of adventure and perseverance from a forgotten chapter of Canadian history through 12 new, original Folk songs in historical styles from Bluegrass to Ragtime, Music Hall, Barrelhouse Blues, Cabaret, Waltzes and more!
