Joe Crookston….Born and raised in rural Ohio, with Hungarian roots, Polkas Polkas...and eastern European food..A little bit of Gypsy soul in this guy... Whether it’s his hypnotic guitar sound, bubbling banjo, or short story lyrics, his music draws from his urban adventures and his rural Ohio roots, exuding a remarkable timeless quality.
In 1987, The Kent State Folk Festival changed his life. After hearing Harvey Reid and the Horseflies at the festival, Joe sold his electric guitar, bought a steel string and never looked back. He's a fiddler and a pretty darn good percolating clawhammer banjo player to boot...
He has performed throughout the US, at Folk Festivals, Coffeehouses, venues... There is not a navel gazing break- up song to be found anywhere… "Go see this man perform".... his audience rapport, musicianship and playful stage presence is intense, mesmerizing, and unforgettably dynamic.,
