Shady Grove Coffeehouse
Saturday, Feb. 11, the Shady Grove Coffeehouse continues its eleventh season with a concert by legendary folk singer-songwriter Bill Staines. Staines has 26 recordings to his credit and has written over three hundred songs, many of which have been recorded by the likes of Peter, Paul, and Mary, Makem and Clancy, Nanci Griffith, Glen Yarborough, and Jerry Jeff Walker. His music is sung at campfires and folk music gatherings, in homes and churches, all around the country. Songs like “All God’s Critters,” “The Roseville Fair,” “Child of Mine,” and “River,” have become folk music classics. Composer David Amram once described Bill as “a modern day Stephen Foster. His music will be around a hundred years from now.” The concert starts at 8 p.m.; doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance; $15 at the door. Children 12 and under are admitted free of charge; teens 13-18 are admitted at half price. Net proceeds benefit UUCC.
