Legendary folk singer-songwriter Bill Staines will perform at the North Reading Community Coffeehouse (Flint Memorial Library Activity Room - 147 Park Street in North Reading) on Saturday, April 29th, at 7:30pm. Doors open at 6:30. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Seating is limited. 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.

North Reading Massachusetts was created as an independent town in 1853 and lies entirely within the watershed of the Ipswich River. By the 18th century the economy of the town was based on subsistence farming with limited hop production.
Along with a small saw mill, North Reading was home to numerous small shoe and boot makers and by 1850 small shops to make the footwear were attached to almost every home. These shops produced cheap footwear that was sold south to clothe slaves, so the Civil War destroyed the town’s industry. The principal products of the town then became milk, apples and fruits.
North Reading has grown into a very desirable residential community with many executive style homes within its boundaries and boasts an excellent public school system. The town center proudly retains its complete historic fabric and contains a Federal style meeting house and an affluent Federal village with a well preserved district of period houses.
