2016 - 2017 Concert Series
January 29, 2017: Bill Staines
Bill Staines A Bill Staines concert is delightfully familiar territory for longtime WHFMS concertgoers. Bill performed during our first season (3/11/73) and has returned every year since. Over those four decades he also became nothing short of a folk music legend, writing a plethora of contemporary American classics that have been covered by the likes of Peter Paul & Mary, Makem & Clancy, Jerry Jeff Walker, Nanci Griffith and others. He is our beloved New England Cowboy, a national treasure, a beautifully subtle left-handed guitarist, a singer and storyteller whose music tells the story of America from explorers in the Yukon to on-the-road truckers, young couples in love, and animals who harmonize. He's guaranteed to warm hearts of any age and to get you singing along. Be there, bring friends, family and grandkids -- and especially your singing voice. "There is no better writer of instantly memorable choruses." - The Boston Globe. "One of the best songwriters in folk music today." - Associated Press For more info visit: Bill Staines' website
