A return visit by Joe Crookston, songwriter, guitarist, painter, fiddler, slide player, eco-village member and believer in all things possible. His songs are universal, his rhythm infectious and in concert, he is funny as hell one moment and transcendent the next. Oklahoma towns, rattlesnake tails, turbary thieves, Galway heather, meter maids and drunk roosters. At the end of the night, you’ll leave inspired. http://www.joecrookston.com/
Whether he’s picking his 48 Gibson, weaving through lap slide songs or looping his fiddle, he will draw you in.
Watch a YouTube video. It’s good, but it’s not the same. You gotta come to a show. With unwavering courage to be himself, he is literate, poignant and funny as hell.
