Indoor Folk Music House Concert Featuring Bob Lind (Elusive Butterfly? Yes, That Bob Lind) with Bill & Eli Perras opening at 2:30pm.

It began in 1966, when the 23-year-old singing poet helped launch and define folk rock, writing and recording the groundbreaking mega-hit “Elusive Butterfly.” Since then, his songs have been recorded by more than 200 quality artists, including Cher, Aretha Franklin, Eric Clapton and Dolly Parton.
His lyrics are taught in colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. His songs are still being sung today, translated into nine languages and recorded by internationally known singers.
Come and see why this engaging poet/guitarist/philosopher/ singer/wise-ass has endured in the sometimes-cruel and always-fickle music business for more than 40 years. But be prepared to feel emotions you may not have let yourself feel in a while – feelings that may scare you a little. His songs hit the heart like a wrecking ball!

Bill & Eli Perras<br>
The many inspired lyrics given to and interpreted by Eli, combined with Bill's bluesy finger-style guitar playing create a very uniquely modern take on true Americana music in its purest form. Receiving much recognition for their tightly woven musical creativity, they humbly remain true to their personal values. They speak out with strong heartfelt lyrics accompanied by soulful genuine pentatonic rhythms against social injustices, corporate greed, and daily follies in everyday life. They can grip your heart, search your soul, change a mindset, or softly strike a funny bone, all the while leaving the audience with a sentiment for the common good we desire in all mankind.
Bill & Eli have opened or shared the stage with Bill Staines, Michael Smith, John Gorka, Jack Williams, Emma's Revolution, Steve Gillette & Cindy Mangsen, and many more nationally recognized entertainers. They are regulars at many Florida folk music venues and festivals and frequently travel beyond the Sunshine State sharing their music.
