“Joe Crookston is a songwriter, guitarist, painter, fiddler, eco-village member and believer in all things possible. He’s not afraid to walk outside trends and create his own version of magic. His recording Able Baker Charlie & Dog was awarded Album of the Year by Folk alliance International. He will surprise you and he’ll awaken the cynics.   His songs are being made into films and are being printed in songbooks. Joe’s live performances are multi-media celebrations of art and possibility with looped fiddle, video, slide guitar and SONGS. His story songs are universal, his slide playing infectious, and on stage he’s funny as hell one moment and transcendent the next.  

 Come to a show. Travel mystical, historical, and humorous roads, and twist through lush sonic landscapes along the way.  Oklahoma towns, rattlesnake tails, Taoist parables and drunk roosters. At the end of the night, you’ll leave inspired.”

Despite all the bad news and chaos, I’m dedicated more than ever to creating beauty in the world.   ~JOE

At every festival I hope to find the gift of one artist whose songwriting and performance stand out. Joe Crookston was that gift for me this year at the Philadelphia Folk Festival. Stunning performance, great songs, and not a word wasted!  I LOVE That!”  
-- David Francey – Songwriter  Ontario

“With all the performers out there, an artist has to go beyond good…and Joe does.”
-- Sing Out Magazine
