OXFORD – Six On The Square (6OTS) invites you to a special afternoon of song on Sunday, Nov. 27. At 2 p.m., before the Oxford Tree Lighting Ceremony (5 p.m.), award winning singer-songwriter Joe Crookston will be on the 6OTS stage. Crookston’s fusion of contemporary and traditional styles will charge and charm your spirit getting your holiday season off on the right foot!
Take this entertaining journey with the very talented Joe Crookston. He’s from rural Ohio with Hungarian roots and maybe a little Gypsy in his soul. It could be in his hypnotic guitar sound, bubbling banjo, or short story lyrics, but his music exudes a remarkable timeless quality.
Joe has been aptly described as a modern-day troubadour; a wordsmith who paints pictures with his lyrics, beautifully. His words are sometimes stories and sometimes poetry about ruby red dresses, drunken roosters, ex-slaves, window washers, Polish Immigrants, Tinian Island, rutabagas and the cycles of life and death. His keen musicianship as guitarist (his Martin OM 28), clawhammer banjo player, and as fiddler, will make you ‘feel’ the music.
