Bill Staines and Lui Collins at the me & thee in Marblehead
Bill Staines and Lui Collins---a fantastic double bill

Bill Staines

For more than forty years, Bill has traveled back and forth across North America, singing his songs and delighting audiences at festivals, folksong societies, colleges, concerts, clubs, and coffeehouses. A New England native, Bill became involved with the Boston-Cambridge folk scene in the early 1960's and for a time, emceed the Sunday Hootenanny at the legendary Club 47 in Cambridge. Bill quickly became a popular performer in the Boston area. From the time in 1971 when a reviewer from the Boston Phoenix stated that he was "simply Boston's best performer", Bill has continually appeared on folk music radio listener polls as one of the top all time favorite folk artists. Now, well into his fifth decade as a folk performer, he has gained an international reputation as a gifted songwriter and performer.

Singing mostly his own songs, he has become one of the most popular and durable singers on the folk music scene today, performing nearly 200 concerts a year and driving over 65,000 miles annually. He weaves a blend of gentle wit and humor into his performances and one reviewer wrote, "He has a sense of timing to match the best standup comic."

Bill's music is a slice of Americana, reflecting with the same ease his feelings about the prairie people of the Midwest or the adventurers of the Yukon, the on-the-road truckers, or the everyday workers that make up this land.


Lui Collins

Folk singer/songwriter Lui Collins has been performing, writing and recording for over 40 years, earning international acclaim for her music.   Her music ranges from original and traditional folk songs to bossa nova in the original Brazilian Portuguese.   She's made 16 recordings of her own and has sung and played guitar or banjo on others' projects as well.  She's shared the stage with such folk-world notables as Tom Rush, Bonnie Raitt, Dave Van Ronk, Stan Rogers, John Gorka, and Anais Mitchell, and has recorded with Johnny Cunningham, David Darling, and Rani Arbo, among others.

Lui has been hailed by the Boston Herald as a "folksinger for our times" and by the Boston Globe as "one of New England's first and brightest stars." She was voted third most popular performer at the Champlain Valley Festival in 1992, along with Pete Seeger and French Canadian band La Bottine Souriante.  Renowned guitarist Dave van Ronk called her "one of the best guitarist-arrangers I have heard in years." And Canadian folk icon Stan Rogers quipped, "Lui sings my songs better than I do."

Besides her concerts, Collins is involved in teaching and early elementary music curriculum development. In 2003 she founded "Lui Collins' Upside-Up Music" for families with young children.
