Joe Crookston… from Ithaca, NY is an artist, writer, guitar picker, painter, claw hammer guitar player, eco-village member and believer in all things possible. You'll be pulled in by the magic and musical world that he creates and you'll end up in the moment, celebrating together with the rest of the audience. He'll sing to you ~ You'll sing with him…. His music embraces the universal, connects us, is masterful and downright fun.
Come to a show. You'll travel with him along mystical, historical, and humorous roads, and twist through personal stories along the way. Amber eyes, Oklahoma towns, rattlesnake tails, Grandmother Moons and silver crowns. At the end of the night, you'll likely leave inspired, taking home a renewed sense of what's possible. In Irish culture, there is phrase called the "The Long Note" ~ 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" and Joe is courting it and always reaching for it.
From the first strum of his 1948 Gibson, through stories of ruby red dresses, Tinian Island, Dylan Thomas, Taoist parables and drunken roosters you'll be drawn in and deeply moved by his music. It happens every time. Watch a YouTube video. It's good, but it's not the same. You gotta come to the show.
Through his spirit and playfulness and his unwavering courage to be himself, you will be moved in ways you didn't expect. He is literate, poignant and funny as hell.
No doubt you'll be glad you came.
