Thanks to everyone who came to "Fourteen Dangerous Strings" Saturday, February 28!

Jim and I enjoyed deconstructing the musical harmony and density I've deliberately worked into songs throughout my career, from Cross-eyed Rosie to the present. The atmosphere was loose jazz club, and you were the beatniks. It was a joy to tease apart the music with you all!

Here are Jim & I playing "Glory Halelujah" from PLAY IN THE YARD.

And doing some serious goofing off. And a selfie war. Just watch it:

NILMDTS-Crockett059bweb_sm.jpg

Three years ago on Valentines Day my family lost our newborn son Joseph Phoenix Crockett.  We call him Josephoenix.  This year I recorded a song I wrote for him, "Where Are You Now",  and it is exclusively available through UseMusic.org to benefit The Dougy Center and their work with children, teens and adults grieving a death.

Its one of the many gifts Joseph left behind in his brief life.  It features performances and voices from many of the same friends and neighbors who bouyed us when this all first happened.  Please visit the song, make a donation, and share it with others.

 The Josephoenix Memorial Benefit Concert for Grief Watch & The Dougy Center 

 on February 18th, 2012 at the Old Church in Portland a success!JP_Memorial_Show_8_5x11VN.jpg


Proceeds from the show went directly to support the work of Grief Watch and The Dougy Center.  Both organizations are priceless resources for people and families dealing with grief and loss.  Most of us already have - and all of us will - lose loved ones.  The impact of supportive groups like these cannot be understated.

 

Chris Kokesh was a fantastic special guest opener for the evening's concert, and LJ Booth graciously joined us to share a song as well. Lincoln Crockett & Enemies headlined the event - featuring Jim McKeon on guitar, Peter Schwimmer on banjo & mandolin, Tyler Smith on bass, Andy Love on drums, and introducing Jeff Baxter on keys. Jeff was able to master the venue's resident church organ for the end of the evening.

 IN PICTURES

Lincoln Crockett,In Pictures

Before my sabbatical last year I holed up with “Angels & Devils Alike” engineer Tom Frisch to record “In Pictures”.  The album captures eleven solo performances on guitars, mandolin, even a banjo.  Featuring previously unrecorded live favorites, rarities and new songs! Includes "Sight Of Love", "Takin' A Break", "Ya Gotta Know" and "Summerbird".  Originally released on my birthday in 2010 as download-only, on 2/26/11 at The Woods in Portland I triumphantly unveiled – ta da – PHYSICAL COPIES.  Enjoy, Amercia.

PLAY IN THE YARD!

Play In The Yard website frontpgage 2010_04_11

I originally intended to spend a weekend in a cabin together and record a few tracks worthy of a booking demo.  Instead, this album captures ten tracks, each one a first take, never repeated!  You've never heard these songs like this before!  

 Features the core of PDX Fusion band THE ROCKTET, a power trio we dubbed SPB: Tyler Smith on bass, Jim McKeon on Guitar and Andrew Love on drums. Together we expanded the limits of what these songs can do in a live performance.  Songs include electric translations of "When Will You Come Home", Cross-eyed Rosie's "Moonbeams & Kerosene", and a 9+ minute send-up of "Nothing Makes Me Feel Good"!  

The album is bookended by a solo acoustic performance of two live favorites: one of the first songs I ever wrote on mandolin, "New Day", and popular torcher "Glory Halelujah" the way it was meant to be played, in a jazz and soul inflected duo performance with Jim McKeon.

MORE ABOUT LINCOLN CROCKETT:

Lincoln Crockett is the real deal, a talented performer singing standout originals on mandolin & guitar, all while playing leads, rhythms and chords all at the same time. He holds audiences’ attention with the expansiveness in his voice and his ability to move a mountain of music through his instruments. Crockett has a style all his own he sometimes calls "progfolk".  He twists jazz, bluegrass, prog-rock and folk into an affecting set of wry soul-searching with uplifting spiritual flavor specific to no genre. The combined effect has garnered Crockett respect from within the music community in the Pacific Northwest, the reputation of being a 'musician's musician' and devoted audience support.

Crockett is also a gifted, trained and experienced energy healer with a private practice serving clients in the United States and Australia (www.lincolncrockettenergy.com).  During sessions he works at a distance to charge, balance, clear and restructure clients' energy fields to improve their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and well-being.  Sensitive to energies from a very young age, music became an expressive tool for bridging the gap between the world he could see and the world he could feel.  His songs are often derived directly from his own personal healing process, and have gone on to touch a deep chord with thousands of listeners.

Crockett cut his chops as singer, songwriter and mandolin player for progressive bluegrass funhouse Cross-eyed Rosie, and helped turn this popular Portland, Oregon five-piece into the Northwest's premier group of its kind. On hiatus since 2008, CER remains popular, and when the band appeared at The Laurelthirst Pub in Portland on 9/11/10 the show was standing room only. 

Crockett was already making a living performing before his first album, but solo career began in earnest with the 2007 release of his full-length debut “Angels & Devils Alike”.  The Oregonian said it “radiates all that's good about the progressive side of bluegrass”, while the Willamette Week called it “gorgeous”.  Crockett quickly became a quiet regional road-warrior, always staying close to home to help raise his then-young son.  “Angels & Devils Alike” eventually sold more than 1000 copies out of the back of his car and through CD Baby, almost exclusively in the Pacific Northwest.

Crockett has performed everywhere from national festival stages to theaters, clubs, bars, coffeehouses and houseconcerts.  He has collaborated on stages and in studios with artists as various as Tony Furtado, Beth Wood, Amber Rubarth, Scott Law, Johnsmith, Jackstraw, Ellis, Marv & Rindy Ross, Hanz Araki, Leela Grace, Mike Midlo (of Pancake Breakfast), Nathaniel Talbot, Jeffrey Martin, Will West, Mo Phillips, and LJ Booth.  He and Chris Kokesh - the award-winning singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist much-beloved for her work with songwriter Jonathan Byrd and nationally-recognized folk group Misty River - have also performed regularly as a duo.  Since 2009 Crockett has been on staff at the Sister’s Folk Festival and the festival's Americana Songwriting and Arts Academy.  In 2012 Crockett produced "Long Way Round", the long-awaited studio debut disk from Portland folk songwriting guru Matt Meighan.  Also in 2012, following the infant loss of his second son, Crockett and his wife Alicia organized the Josephoenix Memorial Benefit Concert to support the work of Grief Watch and The Dougy Center, raising over $2500.  Crockett has performed numerous times to benefit Sister's Of The Road, and his most popular song, "Sawdust Settler" has been used to benefit nonprofits like the Salmon Nation Artists Project, Bark, and the Columbia Equine Hospital.  His songs can be found on Pandora, and he has been played, interviewed and performed on KINK FM, Tom May's "River City Folk", as well as programs and podcasts on KBOO, KZME, KMUZ and more.

Eventually, exhausted from touring, Crockett released a disk of solo performances, “In Pictures”, and a live disk with his electric band, “Play In The Yard”, before announcing an extended sabbatical.  Since his return, Crockett has continued performing only occasionally, dividing his time between his energy healing practice, his family life, and giving a handful of private lessons. Crockett currently lives in a tiny dairy valley at the foot of Mt Adams, and enjoys playing old-time fiddle tunes with his neighbors.
