Joe Crookston Returns to LIM



Sunday, February 24, 3 PM


On Sunday, February 24 at 3 p.m. much-acclaimed songwriter, guitarist, fiddler, pianist and painter Joe Crookston returns with a multi-media celebration of art and possibility. He’s part of the Sunday Street Concert Series presented by the Long Island Museum, WUSB-FM and the Greater Port Jefferson – Northern Brookhaven Arts Council.

Named 2016 Folk Alliance International Artist-in-Resident, Joe Crookston has played with hundreds of musicians including Suzanne Vega, Dar Williams, David Francey, John McCutcheon, John Gorka, Judy Collins and more. He surprises audiences with his socially relevant lyrics and his songs are universal.    


Whether he’s picking his 48 Gibson, weaving through lap slide songs or looping his fiddle, Joe Crookston draws audience members in. With unwavering courage to be himself, he is literate, poignant and very funny.  Joe brings songs, stories, visual art, beauty, hilarity and deep magic.

The Sunday Street Series began in 2004 at The University Cafe at Stony Brook University, when Charlie Backfish, host of the long-running weekly radio program Sunday Street on WUSB-FM, began presenting concerts with many of the singer/songwriters featured on the program. In its first decade, the series presented 172 concerts with musicians from all over the world performing in an intimate venue. In 2015 the series moved from the University Café to the nearby Long Island Museum, where musicians may take advantage of the museum’s Steinway Boston Grand piano.
