Joe Crookston is a songwriter, singer, guitarist, painter, fiddler, banjo player, eco-village member and believer in all things possible. Joe lives in Ithaca NY and tours regularly in the US, Ireland, and Canada. In his songs he is plumbing for lyrical gold, like some kind of social archeologist. His story songs are universal, his rhythm infectious, and in concert he is funny one moment and transcendent the next. Whether he’s picking his 48 Gibson, weaving through lap slide tunes or looping his fiddle, he will draw you in.
