Event Navigation

Bill Staines is one of the most popular and durable singers on the folk music scene today. He travels throughout the country performing nearly 200 concerts a year and driving over 65,000 miles annually so we are lucky to have him join us in his own “backyard”. Singing mostly his own songs, he weaves a blend of gentle wit and humor into his performances. In addition to his warm voice and spirited guitar playing, he is a gifted storyteller and an award-winning yodeler.

Bill’s music is a slice of Americana, providing a window into the lives of prairie people of the Midwest, the adventurers of the Yukon, the on-the-road truckers, or the everyday workers that make up this land.

To date, Bill has recorded 26 albums. His songs have been recorded by many artists including Peter, Paul, and Mary, Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy, The Highwaymen, Mason Williams, Grandpa Jones, Jerry Jeff Walker, Nanci Griffith, Glen Yarborough and others. Bill’s songs have appeared in grade school music books, church hymnals, and scouting campfire songbooks. He is one of only a few songwriters to have eight songs published in the classic song collection, Rise up Singing.

“Folk music is rich in the human spirit and experience. I’ve always wanted to bring something of value to people through my songs.” With these thoughts, Bill continues to drive the highways and back roads of the country year after year, bringing his music to listeners, young and old.
