Joe Crookston and Chris O'Brien
The future of folk is in good hands. Our April show features two highlights from our 21st season, two young men recognized as top Emerging Artists by the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival - Joe Crookston and Chris O'Brien.

Joe Crookston's music and songwriting are deeply rooted in the grand celebration of life, death, ancestry and the interconnectedness of us all. His music draws from his rural Ohio roots and exudes a remarkable intergenerational, universal, and timeless quality.

His keen musicianship as guitarist, clawhammer banjo player, fiddler, singer and songwriter fuse contemporary and traditional elements, with his crafted writing style.

His release Fall Down as the Rain, was chosen by Performing Songwriter Magazine as a 2004 "Top-12-Do-It-Yourself" independent recording, and two of his songs recently won runner-up in the folk category in the prestigious National John Lennon Songwriting Contest.

Chris O'Brien follows in the footsteps of the Bostons best. A family friend of Dar Williams, and protege of Ellis Paul and Mark Erelli, O'Brien has hit the scene running.

He was named one of Falcon Ridge Folk Festivals Emerging Artists, was a finalist in the Mountain Stage song competition, and performed on A Prairie Home Companions People in their Twenties talent contest.

O'Briens debut CD Lighthouse has received critical and audience acclaim, and he recently released a live recording of his sold-out show at Bostons famed Club Passim.
