Blues, Folk, & Country

Bill Staines

When: Sun., Oct. 10, 8 p.m. 2010

Bill Staines has been singing and writing first-rate songs for most of his life. Although many A-list country and folk artists have covered his tunes, including Jerry Jeff Walker and Fairport Convention, he still remains largely unknown outside of folk circles. His recent material deals with aging and the specter of mortality that hangs over us all.Yet, he accepts lifeƕs changes and limitations. Spiritual grace and insight makes his music shimmer and shine. His understated guitar picking and rough-hewn vocals make him a compelling performer. Bill Staines plays Sunday October 10 at Freight and Salvage (2020 Addison, Berkeley). 8:00 pm $18.50-$19.50TheFreight.org
