Joe Crookston is a fabulous songwriter, guitarist, painter, fiddler, slide player, eco-village member and believer in all things possible. He’ll surprise you and awaken the cynics. He’s plumbing for lyrical gold like a social archeologist. His songs are universal, his rhythm infectious and in concert, he is funny as hell one moment and transcendent the next.
Named 2016 Folk Alliance International Artist-in- Resident, he’s played with Suzanne Vega, Dar Williams, David Francey, John McCutcheon, John Gorka, Judy Collins and hundreds more. His songs are cinematic and are being made into award winning films.
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. Joe is a powerful force of nature that won over everyone’s heart, admiration and joy at his last Acoustic Getaway visit. He’ll do it again at an Acoustic Stayaway not to be missed.
