Willy Finlayson was born near Edinburgh. A talented footballer, at age 17 he tried out twice for Falkirk in Scotland, and had a month’s trial with Newcastle United. He started performing at age of 13 – singing with musicians much older than himself in the Scottish band The Dukes. In the late 60's he went to London with his band, The Writing On The Wall.

In the 70’s sang and played with Bees Make Honey and Meal Ticket, and in the early 80’s he recorded with Manfred Mann’s Earthband on the Chance album.

Willy has toured all over Europe, South America and Scandinavia.

"Finlayson plays guitar and sings like God" said former Mean Fiddler promoter Pete Feenstra.
