For over forty years, Bill Staines has traveled back and forth across North America, delighting audiences at festivals, colleges, concerts, and coffeehouses. Some of his better known songs include A Place in the Choir, River, Roseville Fair, and Sweet Wyoming Home. His songs are slices of Americana, ranging from stories of prairie people of the Midwest to the seekers of Yukon gold. Bill weaves a magical blend of wit and gentle humor into his performances and he delights in having the audience sing along.
Bill continues to drive over 65,000 miles a year, doing what he loves: meeting all kinds of folks, writing songs about them, and bringing his music to friends old and new. October winds will whisk Bill into the Phinney Neighborhood Center Saturday, October 16 for a Seattle Folklore Society concert at 7:30 p.m. Come see why Nancy Griffith said, “Bill Staines has been my hero since 1977. He carries on where Woody left off.”
Opening for Bill will be Oregon songwriters Mike & Carleen McCornack, who have been delighting audiences for nearly fifty years with an engaging musical style that blends clear, expressive, harmonious vocals with sparkling acoustic instrumental accompaniments.
