I wish I could be there! I am a long time Bill Staines fan. He is a wonderful and prlific writer - and a warm, humorous, gifted performer. I am sure the NW Mudcatters will love the show!

I'd love to come to this concert, and Musicman, thank you very much for sharing "Sweet Wyoming Home" with us last night on HearMe. When I had interviewed for the job in Wyoming and couldn't make up my mind whether or not to leave New Mexico, I got in my car after work late one night and "Sweet Wyoming Home" was playing on the public radio station. I hadn't heard it before, and I took it as a sign from Heb'n that I was supposed to move.

It's a lovely song...

Now: How do I emigrate to B.C.? I'd be a great addition to your country ... really, I would. (Yet another friend of mine has gone for a visit and come back singing Vancouver's praises, telling me it would be the PERFECT PLACE for me ... I"m not certain why, but two friends have told me that. This particular friend described in glowing detail a wonderful old bar she'd found there, and THAT seemed to be her entire basis for telling me it was the perfect place for me. Ach, my reputation...)

hard to pick a favorite for me... although I do say Roseville fair is my fav to play/sing.... So many other good ones though......

agreed; Roseville Fair is a gem!

He wrote another one I always enjoyed and wanted to learn (still may) I think it's called A Quiet Faith in Man. Nice tune, great lyrics ... a refrain that goes something like;

and you can trust the moon to move the mighty ocean
you can trust the sun to shine upon the land
you take the little that you know and you do the best you can
and you save the rest for a quiet faith in man ...

sound familiar? I have it on an old tape a friend gave me some years ago. I don;t which album it came from.

You bet, Musicman. And he is doing a mini=songwriting workshop on Saturday. I'll be there with bells on. Well, maybe no bells, but I might bring my banjo :o)

Jed...the song you mentioned is on Bill's "Sandstone Cathedrals" cd/cassette. Musicman...I'm REALLY excited for you. There are a lot of us here who adore Bill's music and respect his dedication to keeping "folk" music alive AND the extraordinary schedule he keeps to share it with us.

I was very lucky many years ago to do a songwriter's workshop with Bill at a festival in New Hampshire. He's a talented man and I am very happy to see him still playing far and wide.

Please give Bill my regards ... former New Englander. I don't s'pose he'll remember me, but we played some of the same places in those days ... John Henry's Hammer (Worcester), the Idler (Cambridge), others ... it'sbeen too long. I've been in Texas since 1986. I almost forgot I was a Yankee.

sigh...............

well..... he's off to the next stop..... what a wonderful 24hours!!! Like most songwriters I would guess... the music is totally a product of the man.... a very gentle soul, your friend in 5 mins for life and enjoys to share his life and experiences with you and listen to yours. Being able just to 'hangout' and show Bill around vancouver..... let him enjoy the city, share a coffee on a beach front patio grill watching the sailors with their boats and see his enjoyment in the relaxation.....Concert time and the 'thrill' of watching/introducing and watching people enjoy someone whom you respect musically... all because YOU brought him here.... Introducing him to your friends who have enjoyed his music for the first time and ......... and.........

then talking till 3am, sharing a grilled cheese sandwich and beer just talking/ playing a bit of music....

Introduced him to the Mudcat too....

Did all this really happen?????

can't wait till next year!!! hopefully more time to play a bit....

anyway... just thought I would share the excitement.....

Musicman, I know what you mean! I went to the song writing workshop he did down here and it was worth far more than I paid! Bill is so unassuming, yet so great. Love to watch him play his guitar upside-down backwards! Margo

Paul, sounds like a WONDERFUL visit for both of you, and a great respite for Bill....thanks for giving us an update! but....but....but....you didn't say what he thought of Mudcats or if he knew about the database here...etc. etc. Margo....maybe if we moved to Oz....his "upside-down" finger-picking would be easier to learn.

What did he sing? Can you list a few of the songs? Heart of Stone? Roseville Fair? Sweet Wyoming Home? others? I checked the calendar at his website and don't see any Texas dates coming up, in the near future. I guess I'll just have to wait for Kerrville next May.
