Thread Name: Bill Staines House Concert Review
Subject: RE: Bill Staines House Concert Review
Bill is a treasure! We've hosted him twice in our home for house concerts in Chugiak, Alaska, and it's been a real treat each time. Ebbie - he comes up here each fall for an Alaskan tour - usually October - you might want to consider finding someone in Juneau who would host a house concert. True, it's awfully far to go to Juneau for one gig, but you never know until you ask....maybe he could do a layover in Juneau on his way up or his way back. Last fall, he came to our house about two hours early, so we had a great chance to visit - we talked a lot about the book he's writing, and about songwriting in general.

Seamus - I had to giggle when I read your story about Bill in Anchorage - I can just picture the two of you, shivering in the cold! By the way - your house concert in Anchorage was really fun this winter! I was sitting about three people down from you in the song circle, next to big old Mike Campbell. (I was the Ghost Chicken girl.) Come back soon! Love, Robin
