Hell surprise you and awaken the cynics. Hes plumbing for lyrical gold like a social archeologist. His songs are universal, his rhythm infectious and in concert, he is funny as hell one moment and transcendent the next. photo: Linda McDonald
HE BELIEVES IN STORIES
Come to a show. Mystical, and humorous roads, twisting through vivid cinematography. Like short 4:00 films. Visual, artful and human. Brooklyn in July, Oklahoma towns, rattlesnake tails, turbary thieves, Galway heather, meter maids and drunk roosters. At the end of the night, youll leave inspired. The Long Note is a phrase in Irish culture.The Long Note is that place of resonance and transcendence where the music, the voices, the instruments, and the community ALL come together and unite.
THERE IS A LONG NOTE & JOE IS REACHING FOR IT
Whether hes picking his 48 Gibson, weaving through lap slide songs or looping his fiddle, he will draw you in. It happens every time. Watch a YouTube video. Its good, but its not the same. You gotta come to a show. With unwavering courage to be himself, he is literate, poignant and funny as hell.
He lives in Ithaca NY, and tours regularly in the US, Ireland and Canada.
Best quote~ I hate folk music, but I absolutely LOVE Joe Crookstons music.!
