About Bill Staines
Bill Staines is an influential veteran folkie from Lexington, Mass., who often sings about living easy in the outdoors. On any given Staines song, you'll find themes of rocky mountains, rushing rivers and wide open spaces of the American west. His gentle, soulful voice is as smooth as buttermilk and comforting on the ears, like wrapping yourself up in an old familiar quilt knitted by your grandmother. Many of his songs have been covered by Fairport Convention, as well as Nanci Griffith and Jerry Jeff Walker, to name a few.
