About the Event
JOE CROOKSTON 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, you’ll 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 he’s 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. It’s good, but it’s not the same. You gotta come to a show. With unwavering courage to be himself, he is literate, poignant and funny as hell.
