ARTS Pick: Bill Staines is a real hoot

Folk singer Bill Staines has been playing around the country for more than 40 years, from coffeehouses to nature centers. The New England native has blended subtle wit and imagination with the beauty of rivers, mountains, highways and backroads, over an impressive 26 albums. And if the mood strikes, the 1975 national yodeling champion might just give ya a holler.

Friday, February 2. Free, 7pm. North Branch School, 221 Mickens Rd, Afton. (540) 456-8450.

2) Don’t direct foul language, racial slurs, or offensive terms at other commenters or our staff.
3) Don’t use the discussion on our site for commercial (or shameless personal) promotion.

We reserve the right to remove posts and ban commenters who violate any of the rules listed above, or the spirit of the discussion.
