Artist, writer, singer, guitar picker, painter, claw hammer banjo player, eco-village member and believer in all things possible,
Joe Crookston will play the Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center on Friday, February 14th at 8pm. A Master Storyteller, Joe served as the Folk Alliance International’s 2016 Artist-in-Residence. If you love a moving song and musical madness, Joe Crookston delivers it all, the melodies, the lyrics, the energy, and a deep passion for well-written songs. Tickets are $15 for members and $18 for the general public. Advance tickets are available by calling 1-800-838-3006 or online at wslr.org.
Joe Crookston believes in stories. Pulled in by the magic and musical world that he creates, you’ll become part of the show. You’ll travel with him along mystical, historical, and humorous roads, and twist through personal, colorful stories along the way. At the end of the night, you’ll leave inspired, with a renewed sense of what is possible. 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. 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. His story songs are universal, masterful and his concerts are a grand celebration of all of us.
