Saturday, November 8, 2014 - BILL STAINES - For more than forty years, Bill has traveled back and forth across North America, singing his songs and delighting audiences at festivals, folksong societies, colleges, concerts, clubs, and coffeehouses. Singing mostly his own songs, he has become one of the most popular and durable singers on the folk music scene today (Eight of Bill's 100+ songs appear in "Rise Up Singing". Two that you all probably know are All God's Critters (a Place in the Choir) and The Roseville Fair).

Saturday, April 11, 2015 - SVITANYA has a repertoire drawn from the entire region of Eastern Europe. Some songs are modern arrangements of traditional folk tunes, some are original compositions in the folk tradition, and others are sung as they have been for generations. They range from strong and strident field-working songs to traditional dance tunes to lush and emotive arrangements, all evoking the timbres, rhythms, and harmonies indigenous to the region. Welcome them back. (photo credit to Casual Candids)
