JEFFERSONVILLE - The Friends of Maris Hearn present the 13th annual Maris Hearn Life Celebration Concert, featuring beloved folkie Bill Staines! The concert is in honor of Maris Hearn, 6/13/37-3/8/07, long time WJFF Radio Host of the Gumbo Shop.
Singing mostly his own songs, Bill Staines has become one of the most popular singers on the folk music scene today, performing nearly 200 concerts a year and driving over 65,000 miles annually. He 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.”
Bill has 26 albums, numerous hits & TV & Radio appearances (including Prairie Home Companion) in his 41-year career, and his songs have been recorded by Peter Paul & Mary, The Clancy Brothers, and Nanci Griffith. Staines has been hailed as the heir-apparent to Woody Guthrie.
On stage, Staines is an intimate, compelling performer, encouraging audiences to sing along.
His humorous tales of life on the road
provide endless entertaining stories and songs. You can visit his website at: https://www.acousticmusic.com/staines/
