Valentine's Treat

As a special treat for Valentine's Day, Gail and I traveled up the road to Goshen for a concert at LVD's Concert Hall in the Old Bag Factory. On stage was our favorite folk singer, Bill Staines.

We've been following Bill for 30 years now, since we lived in Vermont and spent our TV-less early marriage listening to the radio together each evening. I particularly remember one show he did on a New York public radio station, guitar in hand. When he played "Roseville Fair," my heart melted, and I knew I had found a muse for life.

If you like storytelling, gentle love songs, winsome melodies, dry and insightful wit, and a wise seer who can share well-earned lessons about life, I'd urge you to give Bill a listen.
