In Your Ear Episode 56: Joe Crookston
Joe Crookston makes musical movies. Short subjects. Snapshots of life, its joys and its challenges. Brooklyn in July, Oklahoma towns, rattlesnake tails, Galway heather, meter maids and drunk roosters. Story songs that pull you in, one by one, and make you feel better about things for being in his thoughtful presence. For the rest of this hour, sit back and ride along with Ithaca New York’s Joe Crookston as JAMinc presents highlights of his Studio A performance from March of 2018.
In Your Ear offers a chance to discover new artists and appreciate the “in the moment” creativity and inspiration that only live music can provide. Studio A is a “great room,” a haven for artists with intimate, friendly and informed audiences and peerless audio fidelity, thanks to engineers Carlos Chafin, Andrea Stefl and Paul Bruski. JAMinc president Tim Timberlake produces the programs covering a wide range of genres including bluegrass, jazz, blues, old time, Celtic, gospel and singer-songwriters of many styles. Artists range from superior local and regional talents, to premier acts from all over the country. Concerts are held monthly except during the summer and begin with a delicious pot luck buffet in the lobby. Check our website for information and reservations: jaminc.org/events.
