Presented By Indy Folk Series
Indianapolis, IN, Marion County
Audience favorite Bill Staines returns to the Indy Folk Series, with lyrics that evoke a sense of place, and stories about characters you wish you knew.
Bill Staines has played numerous times at the Indy Folk Series, and is among our most requested performers. For more than forty years, he has traveled back and forth across North America, singing his songs and delighting audiences at festivals, folksong societies, colleges, concerts, clubs, and coffeehouses. His 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.
Staines 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."
