JOE CROOKSTON is a master storyteller, 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 signed to Tamulevich Artist Management along with John Gorka and Peter Yarrow. His music swirls with themes of lightness, darkness, clocks ticking, weeping willows, cynicism, hope and the cycles of life and rebirth. If you love a moving song and musical madness, Joe delivers it all - the melodies, the lyrics, the energy and a deep passion for exceptionally well-written songs. You haven't really experienced the magic of Joe Crookston until you have seen him perform live. www.joecrookston.com
