Anyone not familiar with the music of Bill Staines is in for a special treat. Singing mostly his own songs, he has become one of the most popular and durable singers on the folk music scene today, performing nearly 200 concerts a year and driving over 65,000 miles annually. He weaves a blend of gentle wit and humor into his performances and one reviewer wrote, "He has a sense of timing to match the best standup comic." Bill's 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, the on-the-road truckers, or the everyday workers that make up this land.

A touring musician for more than 30 years, Ann has gotten to know a bit about the geography of the United States and Canada. She has toured North America coast to coast, doing concerts, clubs, and festivals including Bumbershoot, Winnipeg, Black Mountain, and National Women's Music Festival. And she's met wonderful fans and made friends all along the way. She has appeared on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion, ABC's Good Morning America, and NPR's Morning Edition, not to mention countless radio stations across the U.S. She wrote and performed Heroes, a theatrical presentation produced by Minnesota Public Radio. And in a departure from her usual repertoire, has developed (with Denise Tabet) Nothing But Class: The Songs of Dorothy Fields, honoring the first woman to be inducted into the Songwriters' Hall of Fame.

From the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis to Fiddling Cricket Concerts in San Jose, from the Folk Club of South Florida in Miami to the Fox Valley Folk Festival in Chicago, and innumerable places in between, they've racked up countless miles over the years, crisscrossing the country to deliver their own unique brand of folk singer/songwriter music. They've played at folk festivals, folk clubs, concerts, universities, on national and regional public radio, and on national cable television. They've shared billings with Arlo Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Jez Lowe, Greg Brown, Anne Hills, Bill Staines, Holly Near, Tanya Savory, and Vassar Clements, to name just a few. In 2000, they were honored to be included on a National Public Radio holiday special hosted by Judy Collins, "Do You Hear What I Hear: A Holiday Folk Tour." Their heartfelt original songs have won them fans throughout the U.S. and overseas. Curtis & Loretta revel in writing songs about the heroism and integrity of real-life, ordinary people
