He stands on stage holding his Martin OM 28, stomping his foot, singing superb songs about ruby red dresses, drunk roosters, ex-slaves, window washers, Polish Immigrants, Tinian Island, rutabagas and the cycles of life & death. He sings about the thread that runs through us all. Artful, intense, and often transcendent, imaginative, and extremely engaging — if you love a moving song and magical madness, Joe Crookston delivers it all….the music, the lyrics, the energy, and the passion for exceptionally well written songs. He loves his audience, and it shows.
Joe Crookston….Born and raised in rural Ohio, with Hungarian roots, Polkas Polkas…and eastern European food..A little bit of Gypsy soul in this guy…Whether it’s his hypnotic guitar sound, bubbling banjo, or short story lyrics, his music draws from his urban adventures and his rural Ohio roots, exuding a remarkable timeless quality. Haven’t seen him perform?? You’ll be glad you did.
