The Friends of Music and The Mansion House Concert Series proudly presents singer-songwriter, guitarist, fiddler, and slide guitarist Joe Crookston. Named 2016 Folk Alliance International Artist-in- Residence and traveling minstrel, Joe will simply put you on an emotional roller-coaster ride with his songwriting, guitar playing and overall musical performance. Whether he's picking his 48 Gibson, weaving through his lap slide songs, or looping his fiddle, he will draw you in. It happens every time. Watch a YouTube video, but it's not the same as his live performance. You gotta come to a show. With unwavering courage to be himself, he is literate, poignant and funny as hell. Joe has performed with Suzanne Vega, Dar Williams, David Francey, John McCutcheon, John Gorka, Judy Collins and 100's more.
