Willie Nile

The Buddy Holly Educational Foundation are proud to have presented the “It’s Too Late” two year loan guitar to Willie Nile, a talented and dynamic performer and songwriter

Maria Elena Holly personally invited Willie to join the foundation. Willie is one of the great American Troubadours, from the old school of acclaimed singer/songwriters. He is a wonderful artist who follows in the footsteps and traditions of legendary storytellers such as Jimmy Rogers, Pete Seeger, and Bob Dylan, but like Dylan, Willie went electric a long time ago and also acknowledges and has a real respect and love for the great original music and artists from the Rock & Roll era, especially Buddy Holly.
