This month, our featured poet is Stan Raines and our musical act is Edgar Clinton.
Stan Raines is a former teacher now retired and spending much of his time with a guitar in his hands. He’s been writing poetry off and on for more than thirty years. Lately he’s been concentrating more on music as part of Long Time Comin’, a singing duo with Joel Humphries, but points out that lyrics are poetry and that poetry and music have much the same roots in ancient ritual. Stan is married to Kathy Trenfield-Raines with whom he has raised three fine sons.
Songwriter and performer of Americana music, Edgar Clinton was born in Houston, Texas and moved to Raymondville, Texas in 1969. His family bought a radio station and he helped with the family business until it was sold in 1997. Since then he started an agency and mostly writes about experiences in Deep South Texas. He is the founder, editor and contributing author of the Writers of the Rio Grande website.
