Thread Name: Bill Staines is heading our way (Saltspring)
Subject: Bill Staines is heading our way.....
It's that time of year again when Paul (Musicman) sponsors a visit from singer/songwriter Bill Staines! This year, Bill will be delighting Saltspring Islanders with his talent and wealth of song on October 19th.   

Paul strongly identifies with Bill, and is dedicated to building "Bridges" between people through music and song.

As most of you know, many people of beautiful BC have been traumatized by the ravages of fire. Most carried fire insurance, many could simply not afford to. These families are having to start all over again. There is also a province wide effort to raise funds to rebuild the historic wooden Kettle Valley Railway Tressles that were distroyed by fire this past week.

Paul and I would like to take the opportunity at Bill's concert to raffle off CD's from our friends and neighbours in an effort to build a bridge of support for these many people in need. If indeed any of you would like to donate a CD to this cause please PM myself or Musicman. Of course we will promote your talents and spirit of good will! AND you will get a chance to "share the stage" with Bill. Paul and Bill have already donated their CD's to the cause and we're hoping that some of you might like to, as well.

Thanks for listening...more concert details to come!
