The Sounding Board is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 1973 to present and preserve folk music in all its forms in the Greater Hartford area
The Sounding Board is closed for the summer
and will reopen on September 9, 2017 with Bill Staines
Saturday, Sept 9, 7:30 p.m.
After touring for more than 40 years, you could think that Bill Staines might think about slowing down. After all, Bill performs more than 175 shows a year and drives about 70,000 miles getting to them.
He’s become one of folk music’s most durable and beloved singers. With 26 recordings and more than 300 original songs, Staines’ music has been recorded by Peter, Paul, and Mary, Makem and Clancy, Nanci Griffith, Glen Yarborough, and many others. His music is sung at campfires and folk music gatherings, in homes and
churches, all around the country.
$17 general, $15 members,
$10 students with ID, $8 children 12 & under
“Any new song that can live comfortably beside the well-worn songs of folk tradition has a good chance of surviving the test of time. Such, we believe, are the songs of Bill Staines.”
– Sandy Paton, Folk-Legacy Records
