Bill Staines with opening act Tom Rawson
For over thirty 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 18 for a SFS concert at 7:30 p.m. Come see why Nancy Griffith says, "Bill Staines has been my hero since 1977. He carries on where Woody left off."
Opening the show will be Tom Rawson, from Orcas Island, one of the Pacific Northwest's most talented and engaging folksingers. In the style of Pete Seeger, Tom is a master sing-along leader with songs that display great heart, humor, and wit. Come on down and join Bill and Tom for an evening of user-friendly songs and acoustic folk philosophy that will leave you smiling.
