Bill Staines
A repeat appearance, by popular demand!

Bill Staines was our first house concert performer, in March of 2019. Over 50 guests attended that concert, and we had to turn folks away for lack of sufficient seating in our living room. He'll be joining us again. Reserve early to guarantee seating this time!

Composer David Amram once described Bill Staines as "a modern day Stephen Foster. His music will be around a hundred years from now."

Staines has over two dozen published recordings, and has written over three hundred songs, many of which have been recorded by the likes of Peter, Paul, and Mary, Tommy Makem and the Clancy brothers, Nanci Griffith, Glen Yarborough, and Jerry Jeff Walker. His music is sung at campfires and folk music gatherings, in homes and churches, all around the country. He’s a New Englander who dreams of open plains and vast, Western skies, and damn his soul, he writes better cowboy songs than anybody in the Southwest. —The Houston Post

"I am well aware of how easy it could be to get involved with simple semantics by saying that all music is music of the people, and therefore folk music, but many of the songs being written today are, rather than songs of the people, songs of the individual performer. They do not have the depth or the universality to make their way in the world much beyond the writer."
-Bill Staines, The Tour

Two Crows for Comfort

Filled with rich harmonies, genuine, heart warming (and breaking) lyrics, Manitoba Country Music Association's 2019 Roots Artist of the Year, Two Crows for Comfort spins stories into songs and songs into stories. Accompanied by their two pups, Frankie and Elliot, the wandering duo hit the road in support of their latest album "Show Me Light". "Their show stands out as one of the most loved concerts I have ever had - people are still talking about them! Erin and Cory are super sweet and personable, have beautiful harmonies and are great storytellers. As human beings, they are lovely, and as musicians they are magic." (Julie Epp, Concerts for Claude)

The Riverside

The Riverside is a band of friends from California and Texas, founded by husband and wife duo, Jacob and Lorien Jeanson.

Circled around one microphone, the band relies on one another to find balance in their music. This traditional type of performance, coupled with vocal harmony and their folk-rooted stringed instruments, the band paints landscapes and tells their stories.

Through traveling the country together and speaking honestly about many highs and lows, The Riverside strives to be a family that grows together, and a band that helps listeners carry on down this life's winding river.

Rebecca Folsom

Rebecca Folsom is an award-winning singer/songwriter with a four octave range, a courageous heart and a deep commitment to transformation. Rebecca Folsom's music is about liberation. Her songs crack open hearts, inspire hope, and leave listeners with a deeper perspective. Rebecca's world-class voice traverses a near-four-octave range. KUNC radio describes it as "knock-you-to-your-knees." The Daily Camera describes her music as "shining with lush harmonies," and Westword Magazine says, "Her songs hit like little earthquakes!"

While her range is impressive, it's the expression in her voice that rivets your attention and stays with you long after the show ends. Rebecca's voice pours from an inner source of honest emotion, flowing from lilting tenderness to fully liberated, unbridled release. Her poetic songs open your heart, setting free a vulnerability you didn't realize was locked away and inviting you to embrace life with all of its joy, sorrow, passion, and love.
