Great voice and songs

Saw him in New Hampshire in 1979! Great voice and songs both!

Delightful program

Bill Staines is one of my old time favorites! Thank you Mark Judkins Helpsmeet for this delightful program.

What a warm soulful voice

Bill Stains' speaking voice is as warm and soothing as his singing voice. I'm pretty sure I saw him at the Commons Coffee House at Cornell U. in the late 70s, then for sure in New Hampshire at about 1984. I was working at Otter Lake Conservation School and would sing the boys to sleep with "River".

Home state music!

Fun to listen to one of NH's own folk musicians.
