Joe Stanton, Folk at the MAC

Joe has performed in the U.S. National finger picking championships and was a finalist in the Kerrville Folk Festival's New Folk songwriting contest.

"With intricate fingerstyle guitar, earthy baritone and lyrics from life, Joe Stanton does what he loves - writing and performing acoustic music."

Joe's philosophy of "playing wherever they'll listen" has taken him and his Martin D28, on a 30 year journey from his favorites haunts in his home on the Sunshine coast, to a concert in a hot air balloon over the Swiss Alps, to the Kerrville Folk festival in the hill country of Texas, to the world fingerpicking championships in Winfield Kansas.

Joe's acoustic guitar style has been likened to his heroes, Leo Kottke, Chet Atkins, Bruce Cockburn, and his songwriting has resulted in 4 cds, styles ranging from Bluegrass, to contemporary folk, to alt country, all receiving radio airplay in Canada, the US , Europe and Australia, and 2 vinyl singles in the 1980s earning 2 BCCMA award nominations.

Over the years Joe has performed all over Canada, The U.S. and Europe. Highlights include performing for the Olympic Torch Relay, A week long cross Canada trip on VIA Rail's artist on Board program, The Kerrville Folk festival in Texas, the Island folk festival in Duncan, and He has been chosen for the Vancouver Province's Playlist 3 times.
