Joe Crookston is a songwriter, guitarist, painter, fiddler, slide player, eco-village member and believer in all things possible. He was named 2016 Folk Alliance International Artist-in-Residence and is signed to Tamulevich Artist Management along with John Gorka and Peter Yarrow.
Joe's songs are universal, his rhythm infectious and in concert, he is funny as hell one moment and transcendent the next. HE BELIEVES IN STORIES. Mystical, historical, and humorous roads, twisting through vivid cinematography in words. Visual, artful and human. Brooklyn in July, Oklahoma towns, rattlesnake tails, turbary thieves, Galway heather, meter maids and drunk roosters. At the end of the night, you’ll leave inspired. Some of Joe's songs are being made into films. He’ll surprise you and awaken the cynics. He’s plumbing for lyrical gold like a social archeologist.
“The Long Note" is a phrase in Irish culture. "The Long Note" is that place of resonance and transcendence where the music, the voices, the instruments, and the community ALL come together and unite. THERE IS A LONG NOTE & JOE IS REACHING FOR IT. Whether he’s picking his 48 Gibson, weaving through lap slide songs or looping his fiddle, he will draw you in. It happens every time. 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.
