For over forty years, Staines has criss-crossed the United States singing his songs and delighting audiences at festivals, folksong societies, colleges, concerts, clubs and coffeehouses. A New England native, Staines became involved with the Boston-Cambridge folk scene in the early 1960's and, for a time, emceed the Sunday hootenanny at the renowned Club 47 in Cambridge. Staines weaves a magical blend of wit and gentle humor into his performances, and his original music is a slice of Americana, reflecting with the same ease his feelings about the prairie people of the Midwest or the adventurers of the Yukon. A number of Staines’s songs have been recorded by other artists including, Peter, Paul, & Mary, Nanci Griffith, Jerry Jeff Walker, and others. He has recorded over twenty albums; radio and TV appearances have included A Prairie Home Companion, Mountain Stage, The Good Evening Show and a host of local programs on PBS and network TV.
