BluStage: Joe Crookston« Back to Calendar & Events
8pm (after the fireworks)
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..It’s been a
good couple years, and there is no stopping.
In February 2009, “Able Baker Charlie & Dog” was awarded
“Album of the Year” by the International Folk Alliance in Memphis, TN
He stands on stage holding his Martin OM 28, stompin his foot, singing superb songs
about ruby red dresses, drunk roosters, ex-slaves, window washers,
Polish Immigrants, Tinian Island, rutabagas and the cycles of life & death.
He sings about the thread that runs through us all.
Sing Out! Magazine says….
”With all the performers out there, an artist has to go beyond good…and Joe does.”
