On his new album, Darkling and the Bluebird Jubilee, Joe Crookston draws from diverse inspirations like Taoist parables, the death of poet Dylan Thomas, animal fables, the passage of time and the timelessness of nature. But true to his craft, he draws these inspirations into his life and our lives, making them relevant and unexpectedly powerful. He sets the songs in a rich bed of acoustic instrumentation, playing guitar and clawhammer banjo primarily and sharing his music with a host of New England folk musicians. His songs nestle into the backdrop of American roots music, and this setting shows off the luster of his talents as a folk songwriter. Crookston is a fine vocalist, and instrumentalist proficient on guitar, violin and banjo. He is also a great songwriter.
