Joe Crookston

If you love a moving song and magical madness, Joe delivers it all....the music, the lyrics, the energy, and the passion for exceptionally well written songs. He loves his audience, and it shows. Joe was chosen as a Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Most-Wanted Artist, and was featured on the Annual Falcon Ridge Preview Tour with Lindsay Mac, Anthony da Costa and Randall Williams.   He was as a finalist in the Mountain Stage NewSong Contest, and received a year-long songwriting grant from the Rockefeller Foundation to travel throughout New York State, interview local residents, and write songs based on his experiences.

Whether it’s his hypnotic guitar sound, bubbling banjo, or short story lyrics, his music draws from his urban adventures and his rural roots, exuding a remarkable timeless quality.
