Art In The Pearl Monday :)

 

Hi Good People,

 

Monday at noon I'll be swinging thru Portland to play on the Songwriter Stage at the 2017 Art In The Pearl arts festival. Can I play you a song or twelve? Come by and lets catch up.

 

If you've never been, Art In The Pearl [AIP] is a huge community event with over a hundred juried artists selling work ranging from fine wooden furniture to beautiful paintings to photography, glass, clay, metal, jewelry and way beyond.

 

The 20th Annual Festival will take place September 2-4th in the Pearl District in downtown Portland.

 

Once again this year the AIP Stage features a really fantastic line-up of local and regional singer/songwriters. Monday, for instance, I'll be following the inestimable Jeffrey Martin. Luv that dude.

 

Other days you can see Matt Meighan, Richey Bellinger, Kathryn Claire, Anna Tivel, Will West, Garett Brennan and a host of the far-flung community of musicians most near and dear to my heart.

 

Check out the whole three-days of music here!

I love Nathaniel. He's soooooo goooooooood. Right up my alley. We're lucky that this farmer hits the road once in a while, and I'm fortunate to get to play with him. He's a musical brother from another mother, for sure. Join us for an evening of jazz-stretched folk chords, finger picking, bluegrass inflections, soul-pop folksongs and piles of original songs I believe are unlike you'll find anywhere else.

Howzitbeengoing? I miss sharing the muse-ics with you, and if you go stalk my pics on the FB - go ahead, do this now - you'll see what I've been consumed with of late.

 

So when Matt Miner swooped in and invited me to join Pat Hull when he tours through Portland, I said YES.

11/21 Houseconcert in Trout Lake with Nathaniel Talbot!!

 

Howdy Stranger,

 

Has it been a long time? It sure feels like it! Since the last time I wrote you in April I have been beavering away on buidling my own cabin. Verdict: It's wet. It's 10,000 things that all have to go basically right. I am behind schedule. And I am absolutely loving it. Stop by Facebook and I'll share pics with you as I post them.

 

Two of my closest musical brothers are putting out new cd's!

 

Tonight I'll be joining Brad Creel & The Reel Deel at Everybody's Brewing in White Salmon, WA to celebrate the release of his new disk, "Time & The Road". Brad's shows are nothing but fun, and his music is fun, funny and heartbreaking. I'll be sitting in. Gorge-ites join us at 9:30pm!

 

I love Nathaniel Talbot and I want you to love him too. He's a brother-from-a-nuther-mother for sure, and he's releasing his 4th CD "Swamp Rose & Honeysuckle Vine" on Fluff & Gravy Records. I am on the record, including what may be the best solo I have ever played.

 

Nathaniel is celebrating with shows in Portland, Eugene, Bend AND my adopted hometown, Trout Lake, WA. He and I are doing a houseconcert at The Trout Lake Abbey's Mountain Room next Saturday!

Mo Phillips Rocks for Cystic Fibrosis 4/18!!!

 

Good Neighbor,

 

As many of you know, my son has Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic condition that thickens mucus in his body. His mother and I have recessive defective genes that actually helped our northern European ancestors survive cholera. Get two of these genes together and you've got CF. Malaria and sickle cell anemia work the same way in people with African ancestry. 

 

Enter Mo Phillips, an old friend I've mentioned many times before and one of my favorite musicians. He just so happens to write songs kids love!!! Mo does not have CF, but at least two kids he knows and loves do.

 

On Saturday April 18th Mo is getting together his Spaghetti Pants Dance Band to rock out in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Its a great reason for a great big show, and naturally, I'll be sitting in with the band on harmonies, mandolin and tomfoolery.

 

 

Purchase presale tickets here now, cuz they are already moving. Bring the kids and boogy!

(503) 249-3983

Price: $9 advance/$12 door. Child: $7advance/$10 door. Children under 2 years of age free.

 


There's never been a better time to have CF. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation funds some of the most cutting edge research in the world, and its work has helped more than just people with CF.

 

Consider making a donation even if you can't make it. Or if you just don't like to boogy. Maybe one day there will be a cure for that too.

 

 

Peace & Be Well,
Lincoln

LinkList: Rita Hosking 3/27!!!

 

Hi Friends & Neighbors,

 

Shows preview themselves for me in my mind's eye. I imagine how awesome or terrible they will be.

 

But for next Friday 3/27 I don't have to. This isn't that show. Rita Hosking is as pure and honest as they come. We did a show in 2013 and loved it. If you're a folk or Americana fan, you'll be lucky to have seen her. Maybe you know this already.

 

I'll perform an opening set, and then join Rita in hers. She'll also bringing her husband, banjo/dobro player Sean Feder. A power trio!

 

You can see videos of our last time together and read some of the great things said about her here at the FB event!

Hope to see you next Friday.

Fourteen Dangerous Strings 2/28! >:-)

 

Guitarist Jim McKeon understands how my musical heart & mind works.

 

I pick an odd chord, he throws on the extensions. Those are the extra notes that make jazz rich.

 

He does aikido, I do energy work. We are comfortable in unpredictable circumstances where alert flow is paramount.

 

Matt Miner is presenting us together in "Fourteen Dangerous Strings", a speakeasy-style show at Mississippi Pizza Pub, Saturday, Feb 28th. Sponsored by Paperjam Press

 

Jim and I will playfully, enjoy, deconstruct and illuminate the musical harmony and density I've deliberately worked into songs throughout my career, from Cross-eyed Rosie to the present.

 

Here's an example: This is us doing "Glory Halelujah", one of my live staples for years. This is also track 1 on Play In The Yard. The video is part documentary and part embarrassing selfie war. Just watch and laugh.

 

Come for dinner, come for drinks, dig the music, snap your fingers instead of clapping. The atmosphere is loose jazz club, and you are the beatniks. Bring your beret, I guess. Kids are welcome too.

About Beth from her web site:

Beth Wood is a modern-day troubadour and believer in the power of song. Her exceptional musicianship, crafty songwriting, and commanding stage presence have been winning over American audiences for sixteen years. Beth’s music is soulful, organic, intelligent, barefoot, high-energy communication of joy.

Picture a home-body with an ever-present wanderlust, an introvert with a passion for performing, a creative free-spirit with enough discipline to rework her dream year after year, calloused little hands and a big pile of curly hair…and you’ve got Beth Wood.

The Washington Post sez: 

“Beth Wood is a musical triple-threat — a thoughtful songwriter and talented multi-instrumentalist with a supple, soulful voice.”

 

 

Tons more information about Beth and I at the FB event page!

Apropos of nothing, I just love this post from Fred Rogers illuminating love as a verb. Have a wonderful holidays and see you next year!

 

Peace & Be Well,
Lincoln

Trout Lake Concert 12/6! + Nathaniel Talbot 12/11!

 

Hi Friends and Neighbors,

 

I only come out of the hills to play when something really special is going on, and in December there's two really special things!

 


Saturday, December 6th, 2014
Lincoln Crockett - with Special Guests - 7 pm
Fortuna Art Building

2395&1/2 Hwy 141
Trout Lake, WA 98650
USA

Price: $5-15 sugg. donation

 

First, I'm performing a concert in my adopted hometown of Trout Lake! Through the evening I'll be performing solo and with special guest neighbors on my tunes and loosely reinterpreted traditional covers. 

 

I'll be in the newly completed Fortuna Art Building in the heart of Trout Lake, following their annual Holiday Party that day. Come join us for both! Careful, if you're there when the Holiday Party ends at 6 we might have you help set up chairs. ;-)

 

I feel lucky to live in this town, and blessed with talented friends here. I hope you'll come share that with me.


More details on the concert's FB event page too!

Then Nathaniel Talbot and I team up for a night of pickin' and croonin'. 'NattyT' is one of my favorite songwriters and musicians, very much a brother. AND The extraextraordinary fiddler (and killer songwriter) Anna Tivel and bass player Sam Howard (Ruth Moody and many others) will be joining us as well!

 

We'll be playing as solos, duos, and quartets featuring both Talbot and Crockett tunes. Songs old to new, uppers to downers, tearjerkers to footstompers, bluegrassy straightshooters to 17-chord-indie brainmashers. I'm genuinely excited, anything could happen.

 

Here's a hot version of "Sawdust Settler" we all did together at Sisters Folk Festival Songcamp 2013,

 

AND brand new clip of us doing "Why Do We Hurt The Ones We Love" from In Pictures as a full band will banjo whiz Tim May. Don't miss Nathaniel's flying RE-entry to the stage and the short opening song: its my favorite thing to play with a bluegrass band ever...

 

Get in on the fun at the FB event page for this one, too.

 

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Tune in as more dates are coming together in the January and February too! Hope I get to play for you and the folks you love this December.

 

Gratefully Yours,
Lincoln

You think you are what you think you are. And you think what's going on is what you think is what's going on. 

Join me on a teensy toe-dip in the immense pool of what we think of as our 'thoughts' really are, what more our 'mind' it might be capable of, and how to start unlocking it. You are - and it all is - more than what you think.

NEXT Mon Oct 6 - Songwriter Circle With Cal & Richard!

 

Hey Pacific Northwesterly Compatriots,

 

I've been invited to crawl out from under my beloved rock and perform! ;-)

 

I'm truly honored to have been invited to join top-shelf PDX pro songwriters Cal Scott and Richard Moore for their bi-monthly Songwriter Circle next Monday, October 6 at O'Connors Vaultin Multnomah Village.

 

Cal Scott is a jack-of-many-genres who writes and performs with The Trail Band and Kevin Burke. Richard Moore is word-witty and tune-wise, and likely to share a few more scenes from “Rain,” his musical-in-the-works about Portland.

 

I'll bring a handful of my freshest songs we can try out together, but I'll always welcome your requests.

 

Music starts at 7pm. Discount advance tickets are $12 each from http://songwriterscrockett.brownpapertickets.com or $15 at the door. These shows often sell out, and this one is not likely to be an exception.

You asked! Here it is, the story of How I Became An Energy Healer

June 8, Kicking Matt Meighan Off! + news

 

"Kicking Matt Meighan off what?", you might ask.  If so you'd start to fall into a category of jokes my brother told me are called "Dad Humor".  Dad Humor is those kind of dumb, punny jokes your dad might make.  Mine sure did and I'm no different.

 

Matt Meighan has invited me to play my songs and help him kick off his week-long residency at Al's Den in Portland on June 8.  He and I worked hard together when I produced his 2012 album Long Way Round, and amazingly we are still friends!  But seriously, I love this man and his warm, beatific presence.

 

We'll be joined by talented songwriter and long-time spiritual friend Halelupe.  I'll sit in with her some and she has a love of chords to match my own!

-------------------------------other newsiness--------------------------------

 

 

Which of all the possible you's is you?  I channeled one answer into my song Be Real, and wanted to play it for a client.  Now its on my Youtube channel.

 

Last Saturday here in Trout Lake, I played a set of music at Healing for Thomas.  The event - organized by an award-winning high-school drummer who joined me on a couple songs - raised over $17,000 for a West African neighbor injured in a farming accident.  Hear Thomas's story here.  

 

I attended a great concert at the Peace House in Portland earlier in May.  The music was superb, but its the walls that caught eye: they're covered in wisdom.  In a way, I wanted never to leave, so I would never forget.  Here's one, and here's another.

 

There will be more like this as the year progresses.  So keep in touch on TwitterInstagram & of course, Facebook.

Chris Kokesh Reunion May 8 + Beaucoup Newsy Stuff!

 

Hi Musicaliscious Friend,

 

I like making up words (like musicaliscious) almost as much as finding gently ear-twisting chord changes (like C#maj9 to Abmaj7/C from Open Wide.  try it out, yum).  And one of my absolute favorite people to play through those ear twists over the years has been Chris Kokesh.  

 

If you know her, you love her, she's a gem of a singer, songwriter, fiddler, guitarist and person.  She and her talented performing-songwriter husband, LJ Booth (also a gem of a human being) have moved to Scandinavia, WI, so chances to play together are rare as hens teeth.

 

But believe in miracles, cuz we found one!

We hope you'll come join us!  I put together a Chris Kokesh & Lincoln Crockett YouTube playlist of every audience clip I could find of us over the years.  If you have another one, post it or send it to us!  You can also join in the reminiscing at the FB event page.

 

I also want to plug Mississippi Pizza Pub as well.  The venue is very supportive to acts and made a lot of improvements to the sound.  They allow performers to keep every penny of the door, effectively nurturing new and old talent alike.  (are we old talent now?)  They pay their bills with great pizza and drinks, so come enjoy those with the music too!

 

And here's some more fun goings on I want to share with you...

 

 

-------------------------------newsy stuff--------------------------------

 

 

Thank you to everyone who have made "Where Are You Now" one of the highest grossing songs for charity on UseMusic.org!  Even more than an Elliot Smith song, for what that's worth.  Its a modest amount, but you can go right now and add to it!  Thank you and thank you!

 

And more thank yous to everyone who came out to Cross-eyed Rosie's show at the Alberta St Pub in Portland on March 22.  What a night!  If you'd like to reminisce or you missed it, Uncle Chippy has posted a live recording of our set here at archive.org.

 

What more you say?  Well sure, over on my Youtube page I've uncovered a video of Gone Away - no, wait, the clip has the wrong title in it - When Will You Come Home, from an afternoon at Anderson's General Store on Guemes Island back in 2010.  Bring your sunglasses.

 

And, inspired by the challenges a client was facing, I posted Open Wide as well.  Maybe you need it, too.

 

Meanwhile, here's one thing I've been saying forever over a pic of friends playing, and yes, I do see EVERYTHING in terms of music.

 

There will be more like this as the year progresses.  So keep in touch on TwitterInstagram & of course, Facebook.

Final in 3 Part Article at LincolnCrocketEnergy.com

 

 

Here's a YouTube playlist of Chris Kokesh and I playing over the years.  All ten of of them were taken by people in the audience.  Anyone have or know of others?  Our reunion show is coming up May 8: https://www.facebook.com/events/4470235154416

Every calamity is an opportunity, I'm sure you've heard it.  But it goes deeper than that.  For the past three months I've been diving into these waters in a series of articles that concludes with this one:

"How Your Life Is Trying To Heal You, Part 3"

Its inevitable, and its not always easy, but if you know what to look for in yourself and your life you will be ahead of the game.  Its all in the article, check it out. 

Or go put on one of my cd's, its already in the songs...

Be well,

New Song for Charity, PCSL Sunday + Rosie Future!!!

 

Song for Josephoenix

 

For the first time in ages there's a song that is not Sawdust Settler greeting you atlincolncrockett.com.  It is also my first new recorded music in four years.

 

The song is "Where Are You Now" and it is available exclusively through the new websiteUseMusic.org, where artists use their music for charity.  All proceeds from "Where Are You Now" go to support the Dougy Center and the simple, powerful help they offer children, teens, adults and families grieving a death.

 

I wrote "Where Are You Now" when my family lost our newborn son Joseph Phoenix Crockett on Valentine's Day 2011.  Around here we call it Josephoenix Day.  This song helped all of us grieve, and its just one of the many gifts he left us in his brief life.  I have only ever performed it twice.  Since then those of you who heard it have been asking for a recording, and so have others who've only heard about it!

 

"Where Are You Now" was recorded and mixed in four long days and one sleepless night in my home office.  It features the voices and performances of friends and neighbors, who were among many who buoyed us after he died, including Zoë PresleyHamid Shibata BennettMo PhillipsRichey Bellinger, and Michael Henchman.  My endless thanks to them for answering my call.

 

In the two weeks since it was posted, "Where Are You Now" has modestly become one of the highest grossing songs at UseMusic.org.  Please check it out:

Thank you and please share this song with others.  Who knows who needs it?

This Sunday I am grateful to be invited back to to play in a place that supports healing, in fact the same place we held Josephoenix's Portland memorial.  PCSL is one of my favorite places to preach to the choir.  If you are mildly spiritually inclined, please join us.

March is Looking Rosie

 

Unfortunately, Portland's recent winter weather cancelled Cross-eyed Rosie's show at the Secret Society.  But never you fear, another show draws near! On March 22nd we'll be at the new Alberta St Pub in Portland, with opener Daniel Robinson.  

 

I'm squeezing in as many Rosie practices as I can as we add new music.  Here we are playing John Day Waltz and Cowboy.  And Daniel has taken to covering my song "When Will You Come Home" in his set.  I'm going to join him and finally get to play the mandolin part and sing the second harmonies from the album!  If you're a fan of this song it will be a great chance to see it.

 

Hope you'll join us.

 

 

-------------------------------Other News--------------------------------

 

 

Chris Kokesh and I just made plans to reunite for one show during her May return to the Northwest.  More about this in the future.  Early details below!

 

In addition to posting "Where Are You Now" on YouTube, I also posted "Hard Heart" from 2010's IN PICTURES.  I was on Facebook talking about flexing the heart muscle and if you'd have been sitting there I'd have played it for you, so there it is.  The album version is a little different than live, so check it out.

 

In the coming months I'll be doing more videos, clips and performances, so please subscribe to the Lincoln Crockett YouTube Channel!  Seeing your name on there will give me a kick in the pants.

 

There will be more news as the year progresses.  So keep in touch on TwitterInstagram & of course, Facebook.

New Song "Where Are You Now" Benefits The Dougy Center

 

3 years ago on Valentines Day, my family lost our newborn son Joseph Phoenix Crockett. It has changed the meaning of Valentines Day. I wrote a song for him called "Where Are You Now", that very few people have heard. Writing it helped me get through the grief and I have a feeling a lot of people would benefit from hearing it.  

This year - as a thank you to Josephoenix and a challenge to myself, as well as to honor others' in grief - I have recorded it and made it available through UseMusic.org to benefit The Dougy Center and their work supporting children, teens, young adults, and their families grieving a death.  Get the song here, you can donate whatever you would like to.

This is the first new recording I've released since 2010, and it features the voices and performances of many of the same friends and neighbors who lifted us up years ago.  Find out more when you preview the track.

We miss you Josephoenix, and thank you for all the gifts you left us.

Please download "Where Are You Now",

and direct others to the song who might need it.

Let's not bury our grief, but share our stories.  If you would like to, share your story of loss of a child, sibling, parent or someone you loved.  You can write on the guestbook, or at my Facebook Page.  

New Article at LincolnCrockettEnergy.com

 

I want you to know how energy is a part of your life.  It'll begin to change the way you look at things.

This week I sent out a new Heal Schpeal, my energy work newsletter, titled How Your Life Is Trying To Heal You, Part 1.

I can only make so much music.  Its a fact.  I have things I'm good at, and then there's things that my neighbors Dan Weber and Matt Mesa are better at.  

 

So we're joining forces: 

 

"The Columbia Center for the Arts proudly presents The Columbia River Gorge Songwriter Summit, a night of tunes, tales and lies with Lincoln Crockett, Matt Mesa and Dan Weber. Join us for three of the finest songwriters the Gorge has to offer in an intimate, listening atmosphere."

Healing Holidays

We've all got to make it through the Holidays.  But you can do more than just make it through.  It could actually be good.  REALLy good. 

I just wrote an article, "How To Have A Healing Holiday Season", with some tips from the heart of a healer to the people he cares about.  When its hard I feel for you, I really do.  Read it here:

http://lincolncrockett.wordpress.com/2013/12/11/how-to-have-a-healing-holiday-season/

This Vid is Your 3:36 of Bliss

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbH3TErFByc

The essence of healing is being in a state of nonresistance to what is, like nature.  I made a clip to help you get there featuring long shots of simple, beautiful nature scenes set to my acoustic instrumental ‘Abraham’s Lament’.  I watched the final edit and could barely move, I was so at peace.

FYI: ‘Abraham’s Lament’ is from my album ANGELS & DEVILS ALIKE, available on iTunes and at CD Baby: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/lincolncrockett2.  But you probably already knew that!

Sign up for The Heal Schpeal, glance at the article, watch the video, and take care of yourself. 

With all my heart, seriously,

Lincoln

Nov. Shows! Rita Hosking 11/7! Houseconcert 11/9!

 

You haven't stopped telling me how much you love the music.  Amazingly, you're still finding me - some for the first time - through my work at Sister's Folk Festival (more on that below) and you telling your friends about my music, especially ANGELS & DEVILS ALIKE.  Thank you and keep spreading the word!  

 

I'm always keeping my eye out for special performance opportunities that I think you'd really enjoy, and November has TWO!  

 

THE FIRST SHOW 

 

...is for those of you who love top-notch Americana, or remember me backing up Brad Creel or Alexa Wiley.  On Thursday, November 7 come join me as I open up for and then accompany songwriter Rita Hosking at The Alberta St Pub in Portland.

 

You've been asking me for some new material, so on Nov 7 I'm going to make a LIVE RECORDING!  New songs and old faves alike.  You being there adds a lot of great energy to a recording, which is great, cuz I might be freaked out playing new material!  I'd better get practicing, my stuff and Rita's!

 

Matt Miner Presents is bringing Rita and I together for you, but she and I met at Sister's Songcamp a few years back when she played the festival.  I'm looking forward to having her back in Portland AND playing with her during her set as well.

 

About Rita from the Press Release:

 

" "In scorching form" (UK Telegraph), Northern California's own Rita Hosking sings of forest fires, culture clash, demolition derbies, the working class and hope.  From major U.S. festivals to Bob Harris's BBC show, Rita is moving audiences around the globe with her stories in song and doubly sweet and sinewy voice, "a captivating performer," (R2 Magazine.)  Rita brings her show to Alberta Street Pub, Thursday November 7, with local mandolin-guitarist, singer-songwriter Lincoln Crockett opening and accompanying Rita on her set.

"Rita's style of country-folk has been lauded for story and sense of place, and her performances praised for capturing the audience.  Honors include winner of the 2008 Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest at the Sisters Folk Festival, finalist in the 2009 Telluride Music Festival Troubadour Contest, and more.  "This California girl comes by her mountain-music sensibility with true authenticity, with original songs deeply rooted in her family's frontier experience," (Dan Ruby, FestivalPreview.com) and Rita's fans call her "the real deal."  A descendant of Cornish miners who sang in the mines, Rita grew up with deep regard for folk music and the power of the voice."

 

THE SECOND SHOW

 

...is for you if you're in need of a good semi-spiritual musical soak, and a chance to go for a country drive.  On Saturday, November 9 you're invited to a Houseconcert hosted by People Of The Heart in Battle Ground, WA.

 

According to Mark, a long-time fan/supporter/friend of mine and attendee of the series, "[Y]ou will really enjoy... the space.  It is one of those places where the very molecules are infused with good vibes and positive energy built up from all of the wonderful events it has hosted over the years. There's a sacred peacefulness there, and with some great music and an audience of open-hearted folks, well it can be truly magical there."  

 

Here's a bit about People of the Heart from Jayna and Jonny Gieber, the stewards of the land and the primary teachers there:

 

"People of the heart is a diverse community and educational organization dedicated to inclusiveness and peace.  Our focus is on increasing spiritual awareness, addressing deep ecology, and experiencing interconnectedness with all life. Our foundation is based on six sacred and magical acres of restored land in Battle Ground, Washington. It is a blessing to offer enriching events that highlight humanity's deep connection with Planet Earth and all its creatures. We are pleased to share with the extended community ~ true and meaningful entertainment ~ music and art that inspires and lifts the heart!"

-------------------------------Other News--------------------------------

 

 

I've been really lucky to fall into the loose family of songwriters, performers, rabble rousers, visionaries, and musicians of all stripes that surrounds the annual Sisters' Folk Festival.  For those of you who already have been, you know how wonderful the SFF is.  Maybe its something in the water, but whatever it is, drink it!  

 

Once again I was on staff at the legendary Caldera Songcamp, helping support the songwriter/campers, directors, and artist/instructors.  They even added a rad new arts component with top-notch instructors in printmaking (I totally did my hands), collage, painting, drawing and more!  Then at the festival I co-managed the Melvin's Stage, playing CEO to a fantastic and constantly changing cadre of volunteers, bartenders, stage managers and truly amazing performers.  I mean, you would not believe who plays that festival!  Go to the website!

 

Peak moment was playing "Sawdust Settler" backed by my brother-from-another-motherNathaniel Talbot, Sam Howard on bass and Anna Tivel on fiddle.  Some of you were there, and gave us a standing ovation!  Thank you!  I also played onstage with my favorite new find, Amber Rubarth, joined Nathaniel for his song at the Sunday morning Community Celebration at the Main tent, and made new friends.  

 

What a hoot!  

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

So there you go.  I'm pretty sure, yep, you're great.

 

Hope Fall's coming down on you easy,
Lincoln

Cycle Oregon Friday

 

Hey Old Friend,

Back in the early '00's I worked for Pizzicato in Portland, OR and served up some pies to riders camped by Wallowa Lake.  Now I get to go back and play music instead!

 

The best way to sum up Cycle Oregon is through what riders call it: The Best Bike Ride in America.  The annual event is a two-wheeled tent revival features 2,000 riders rolling through Oregon's beautiful backwoods by day, and camping out while being served great food and being serenaded by great music.  If you like to ride your bike and like a party, then yeah, you'll like this too.  Check it out.

 

 

 

-------------------------------other news--------------------------------

 

 

I'm continuing to grow my healing practice, teach music to musicians of all levels in the Gorge, and be with family.  Really, that's about it!

 

In the meantime, I'm letting the player roll at the website, you can enjoy my clips and performances on YouTubeiTunes never runs out of virtual stock, and cd's are still available through the great folks at CD Baby.  I've also had some fun recording cool stock music clips with Tom Frisch you can hear at Pond5 under the name BlueGenes.

In it I get to share with you where the song Psychopaths came from, and what makes recording albums like Angels & Devils Alike unlike any other.

 

We also had a fun conversations about energy work, songwriting, psychotherapy and I capped it of with a new song for you on Ukelele, "I Love You (Thank You)".

 

"Hello Cruel World" is a great eye into songwriters and musicians. Check out previous podcasts with other Portland area musicians and compatriots like Matt Meighan, Mike Midlo, Brad Creel, Stephanie Schneiderman and many more!

 

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------

I want you to get hip to Mo Phillips!  Mo does 'kids music' that adults love, too, like a full-sized, indie Muppet.  

 

I made guest appearances on Mo's past two albums, Robot Rodeo and his newest, Monster Suit.  You should especially check out a sweet duet on Monster Suit I sang with Portland's Little Sue called "The Princess & The Cowboy".  Play it for your kids and yourself every day!

 

I'll be joining Mo for two special shows in Portland this Saturday!

I'll be backing Mo up, and so will Ellie Holzemer Russell.  Ellie is the fantastic fiddler for Cross-eyed Rosie, and it is always good to make music with her.

 

Even if you're far afield I still want you to know, about Mo.  Check 'im out, he's a real gem.

Jones and I will get into a philosophical discussion about the show's title.  He dropped me a note after playing my song "Psychopaths" a few times, and Matt Meighan was a recent guest on his show.  

 

I'm also using it as a chance to pick a little with Jim McKeon.  Jim and his new guitar will be joining me sometime later in my set.

 

It will also be a Podcast!  If you can't listen live, go to iTunes and search "KZME Hello Cruel World".

 

If you can't listen live, but still want that genuine radio experience, the program will be rebroadcast Tuesday 4/2 from 10-noon.  I'll let you know when the Podcast is available after that!

 

And I promise, no matter how much it scares me, I'll play you at least one of the yet-unrecorded songs that have been gestating around me over the past year or two.

 

Live or via Podcast, I hope you'll join us.

Give a Lincoln Crockett disk this year!

 

Hi Friends,

 

Happy Holidays and Happy end-of-2012.  

 

I've got to confess, I'm one of those people who loves Christmas, stockings, caroling and the whole bit.  Every year growing up we piled into a car a drove all day to cram into my aunt & uncle's house for a huge family gathering.  As an adult I miss those gatherings, but the warm feeling persists.

 

I also get a kick out of very non-hippie-type-folks putting enormous glowing signs in their yards that say "Love" and "Peace".  Maybe there's hope and we're not so different after all.

 

Every now and then I still get an email or Facebook message from someone who was really effected by one of my songs, especially from my album Angels & Devils Alike.  More than a few of them find these songs carried them through hard times in their lives, the same way they lifted me when I wrote them down.  

 

Some of these songs were born as much as 8 years ago, but thanks to my low-profile, independent music career, many people are still just discovering them.  Others have come to cherish them more and more over time. 

 

If you're looking for something special to throw into a loved-one's stocking, a piece of great music to give to a music-lover, or something meaningful to share with someone who might need it this year, please consider giving a Lincoln Crockett CD.  Right now at  CD Baby you can order actual physical copies and still have them by Christmas.

 

Who knows, right about now you just might need to put one on.

 

 

-------------------------------other news--------------------------------

 

 

Here in Trout Lake I'm on a break, taking time to grow my healing practice, teach music to my great private students, and be with family.

 

It also seems the muse has me writing more songs, which if things go well I'll share with you in 2013.  I've already recorded some fun stock music with Tom Frisch you can hear at Pond5

 

Meanwhile, you can see clips and performances on YouTubeiTunes never runs out of virtual stock, and I'll always let the player roll at lincolncrockett.com.

 

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

I appreciate your support and I'm grateful for every chance I get to share music with you.

 

Take good care and enjoy the season.

 

Peace & Be Well,
Lincoln

Peace House Concert with Chris Kokesh, LJ Booth & Richey Bellinger!

 

Hi Neighbors,

 

So, uh, I find myself inarticulate.  Unabashedly unverbose.  

 

Uh, wow.  I could not gush about Saturday the 17th in Portland enough.  If you don't already know all of these musicians (and are therefore probably giddy to see this gathering), then there's so much to tell you.  You must go to their websites and work up a good lather.  

 

These songwriters in the round is something special.  Chris Kokesh is a longtime friend and collaborator, LJ Booth is one of the best songwriters I have ever met and a national talent, and Richey Bellinger is a potter and one of my favorite songwriters in Portland.

 

The Peace House is one of those precious, wonderful places that I can't believe exists, and yet does.  To have this performance in this house in such a setting, well, I don't know what music is really about, but I know its about this for sure.

 

Join Us.

Up here in Trout Lake, Ma Nature has been dancing around the thermostat with warm morning rain just as likely as a hard frost.  The leaves have turned and mostly fallen, but fall is not through yet, and a wonderful breath of fresh, almost-vanilla forest mulch wafts all about.   That and cow manure.  But somehow that's why we love it here.

 

C U out there soon!

 

Peace & Be Well,
Lincoln

Secret Society with Marv & Rindy Ross, Thursday!! + News, news, news

 

Hi Neighbors Far & Wide,

 

The country life has me happily busy (more news on that below), so every chance I get to come out and play has been something special.  

 

This Thursday is perhaps cream of the crop:  

 

As Quarterflash, Marv and Rindy Ross built one of the most successful bands to ever come out of Portland, touring with the likes of Elton John, stacking up platinum records and a major studio film soundtrack (“Nightshift”).

 

This Thursday, The Rosses will play a rare, intimate acoustic concert with some very talented friends from Quarterflash and their other recent popular creation, The Trail Band, “sitting in”.

 

Marv & Rindy will be taking on swing, country, folk, rock, and Americana with high energy and humor, distilling the fun and intensity of their 17 CDs and thirty years of creating music together into a powerful original acoustic set.

 

I’m honored, tickled, happy and excited to be invited to kick off this special night.  

 

The Secret Society is comfy and luscious. Seating is limited, so get your tickets right now!

Man of Learned Letters:

 

Just like kindergarten, sing it with me now, "C, D , E, F, G, A, B".  Wha?  If that doesn't look right, that's 'cause its all the white keys on the piano.  

 

That's right, I'm offering Music Lessons to musicians of all ages and levels in my home office in Trout Lake, WA and via Skype.  I so enjoyed opening musical doors for my students these past two years in Portland.  I love music and I love to share. 

 

Mandolin, guitar, bass, drums, singing, songwriting and performing are all on the table.  So far a number of my neighbors stop by every week, and one intrepid Portlander makes the drive once a month!

 

Drop me a note if you're interested too!

 

"Smoke gets in your eyes...":

 

Some of you may recall that the last time I moved to Trout Lake Mt. Adams caught fire.  We got back here in August and by September the mountain was on fire again.  I've promised the neighbors we're never leaving again!

 

Thanks for everyone who sent a note or an email of concern.  With two other areas burning in the near-region as well, Fire crews have done extraordinary work keeping threatened lands safe.  I now have an eye for helicopters, and I've learned to say "There's a tender drafting up the road" [ie, there's a water truck pulling water from the stream up the road].  

 

And you know how photos and pictures look so warm with a yellow/blue-blocker filter on them?  Ours look like that all day long!

 

Guess who stopped by the other day?:

 

Fans of my bluegrassy side and my work with Nicolas Miranda be glad to know that we just completed a couple-day songwriting binge.  The acoustic guitar wizard drove the 2.5 hrs from Hermiston to Trout Lake early last week to break ground on new material - new fiddle tunes, new arrangements and new songs - for a new album project!  

 

The creative sparks were definitley flying, and so far the results have exceeded our expectations.  Now I'm working hard to get three new variations on a familiar fiddle tune up to flying speed!

 

If all goes well this will be a large part of my 2013, and will hopefully include travel to areas I haven't been to in a while.  I'll keep you posted as things progress.  

 

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Thanks to those of you who came out at last-minute notice when I was invited to play the finale RUINS Tuesday party at Springhouse Cellar in Hood River, OR.   Jackstraw headlined!  Man, what a scene!  Hopefully they'll start up again next year, they're worth the trip.  

 

All the best 'til I see you next.

 

 

Happy Fall,
Lincoln

LINKLIST: This Saturday!! Nathaniel, Jeff & Lincoln!! and heaps more...

 

Hi Everyone,

 

I feel very lucky at this at this stage in my modest career.  

 

I get to play about as often as I want to right now, and only shows I'm genuinely excited about.  Over the past year I've shared bills with the likes of Beth Wood, Leela Grace, Halelupe and so many more, and each one has been a special evening.

 

This Saturday at Mississippi Pizza in Portland will be the exact same miracle all over again, I can feel it in my bones.

 

Nathaniel Talbot opened my first cd release show in 2007, I simply adore what he does.  He now lives on an island as a full-time farmer and makes it back occassionally to blow people's minds with his extraordinary Travis picking guitar and delicate chamber pop folk.  

 

I first heard Jeffrey Martin at 2011's Sister's Folk Festival Americana Songwriter Accademy and was blown away by his soulfulness.  But even before that I took one look at him and had a gut feeling, like, 'woa, lookout, this guy goes deep.'  We've been wanting to do something together for a long time.  

 

Needless to say, its a mutual love fest.  We'll begin with three short solo sets and then play in the round for the rest of the evening, chiming in and jamming together on several songs.  I'm glad every time Nathaniel makes it back to town, and I know you will be to.

Araki/Claire/Crockett/Miranda 7/28! & Much More!

 

Hi Everyone,

 

How is your summer going?  Those of you who've been keeping up with me on Facebook know mine has definitely got my number!    

 

So when life handed me lemons, I've made carrot juice with the music dangling ahead of me.  I'm joining a wild campout and concert with Brad Creel and The Reel Deel Saturday, an open mic with Alexa Wiley and Garett Brennan and more this Sunday, and playing and end-of-summer bluegrass hurrah with Bloom Out Inside at the Division/Clinton St Fair in a couple weeks.  You'll find details below for all of these below.

 

If there's just one you come join me for, however, make it this:

 

Saturday, July 28th is nothing short of a dream bill I've had in mind for a long time - Hanz Araki & Kathryn Claire, and Lincoln Crockett & Nicolas Miranda at Mississippi Pizza Pub in Portland.

 

Irish flute player Hanz Araki is the quintessential world music musician.  Best known for his playing and singing of Celtic music, Hanz (short for Hanzaburo) is the world’s only sixth generation shakuhachi player, the traditional bamboo "Zen flute" of Japan.  He has performed around the world with the Juno Award-winning Paperboys, Casey Neill and an all-star tribute to The Pogues called K.M.R.I.A. alongside members of The Decemberists and REM. He has played with the Seattle Symphony and is featured on more than a dozen recordings and soundtracks, from feature films and documentaries to popular video games.

 

Kathryn Claire has asserted herself in a new generation of traditionally-inspired musicians. As a violinist, singer, and songwriter she has cultivated a style that is technically graceful and moves seamlessly across genres.  She has collaborated with many Portland stalwarts including KMRIA, The Portland Cello Project, Chris Kokesh & more. The Eugene Weekly says the songs on Kathryn's new album, Morning Comes Too Soon, “leave you with goosebumps.”

 

Together Hanz & Kathryn have toured extensively throughout the US, Canada, and Japan and have released an ambitious series of themed Celtic music albums.

 

I've said enough in these emails about acoustic guitarist Nicolas Miranda to fill several press releases.  He's wonderful.  Together, he and I create a bluegrazzy modern folk, passing his guitar and my mandolin between us.  Its fun and dynamic, its off the rails, it dances and flies.  We truly play. 

 

Expect some inter-duo collaborating too!

LINKLIST: Electric Gurus at the White Eagle Friday!!

 

Hi Everyone,

 

Without making a big deal about it, I want to hip you to what's so cool about this Friday's show in Portland:  

 

On my website I talk about how each of the bandleaders is some kind of guru in their own right.  They are - you should check them each out, and the show is going to be a good one - but that's not the point.

 

What's really happening is its the last time for a while I'll rock out with three of my favorite musicians: Jim, Tyler & Andy.  I'm moving back up to Trout Lake, WA in August, and while a lot of things won't change, a few will.  I'm going to let go what has become Crazy Horse to my Neil Young, the sonic place I go to let go, to get electrically loud and roudy, to surrender to sound itself.  But not just yet.

 

The evening kicks off with Halelupe and her brother Nick Weitzer at 9:30 with a set of her intricate and groovy spiritfolkpop.  'Lupe and I had a great time at last month's Sunday show at Mississippi Pizza and I'm looking fwd to more.

 

Next the Michelle Kopper Band takes the stage for a full set of music featuring Michelle's long-time friend and collaborator Craig Stewart from the online radio show "Between The Notes" on guitar and newest collaborator Mont Chris Hubbard local songwriter/composer on keyboard. Welcoming Will & Fletcher on Bass & Drums respectively...serving up a fresh interpretation of some of her favorites in that soul-searching-meets-humor-meets-determination=JOY... way that she does.

Finally, the band from my electric album "Play In The Yard" - Jim McKeon on guitar, Tyler Smith on bass, Andrew Love on drums.  We sometimes called them 'SPB', and they formed the core of my 6-piece crew 'Enemies'.  We've spent the past 5 years together revisioning most songs I've ever written.  I've learned more about what it means to really play music from these guys than anywhere else.  These are my gurus.  Let's see if I've learned anything.

May's full of Love starting Sunday! Halélupé!!

 

Hi Everyone,

 

Music in the merry month of May is all about Love Love Love. Hallelujah! No, seriously, its a bizarre theme that keeps popping up. Read on:

 

The "All Ages n' Early" show we did back in April was a treat for everyone, and I've been looking for a chance to do another ever since. And here is is: this Sunday, May 6th singer, songwriter, guitarist & healer Halélupé and I are getting together for an easy-going, Sunday music hangout in Portland at Mississippi Pizza.

 

Got kids and don't want to have to leave 'em at home? Bring 'em here and they can eat pizza. Love the music but don't want to have a late night? We want to see you at Mississippi Pizza on Sunday!

 

Here's where the love part comes in: Halélupé's latest album, The Heart of Things (see?), is a journey to the quiet places of the heart (there it is again!) that also rocks. It was produced by leading Portland producer Rob Stroup of 8-Ball Studios and has received radio play around the West including Portland (KINK), San Francisco (KFOG) and New Mexico (KBAC & KTAO). Lupé, as I call her, captivates listeners with engaging melodies, hooks, and grooves. She has garnered acclaim as a finalist for the 2008 Portland Songwriters Association Performing Artist of the Year, and a 2009 West Coast Songwriters contest “Judges Pick”. Her loyal following and I enjoy her authenticity, remarkable songs and ability to touch us deeply.

March Music Magic - Leela Grace, Will West and More!

 

Hi My Angels & Devils,

 

There's something for everyone in March's busy music calendar:

 

For everyone who's been asking for an earlier show. I hear you! This Sunday, March 4 singer, songwriter, banjo player, guitarist & clogger Leela Grace and I are getting together for an easy-going, Sunday music hang out.

 

Got kids and don't want to have to leave 'em at home? Bring 'em here and they can eat pizza. Love the music but don't want to have a late night, we want to see you at Mississippi Pizza on Sunday!

 

Leela is a Columbia, Missouri native who transplanted to Portland in 2007, and has quickly become a sought-after performer and banjo, singing, and clogging teacher in the area.  She has performed nationally for over 25 years, developing her own unique clawhammer banjo style, marked by clear melodies and powerful, driving rhythm. Leela’s “soaring” vocals, compelling modern original songs, sterling credentials in old-time music, and disarming stage presence have earned her critical and audience praise for the “great depth and insight” of her original songs. Her music has been featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered and chosen for inclusion on a “Best of Portland Acoustic Music” compilation CD.

Then on Thursday, March 15 I'm takin' it in the other direction with a late-night club hangout at the Goodfoot in Portland with Lincoln Crockett & Enemies and Will West & The Friendly Strangers.

 

Carolina-born Will West's up-temp folk and roots music is the perfect thing to see at the Goodfoot, itself a funky, upbeat, fun place to hang out that I've been coming to to dance the night away ever since arriving in Portland more than a decade ago. Will was up for awards at this year's Portland Music Awards and is band The Friendly Strangers, reads like a who's who of Portland Americana musicians.  

 

My Enemies are still rosie from last month's successful benefit concert, so come get your weekend started off with a bang, on a Thursday! Enemies is up first and both bands will play long, wide open sets until the wee hours.  Lets have some fun.

Thank you to everyone who made February's Josephoenix Memorial Benefit Concert for Grief Watch & The Dougy Center such a successful, memorable, and meaningful evening.  I am deeply grateful.  

 

We reached all of our goals of giving and were able to raise awareness through our story that there is reason to hope even in - and perhaps especially in - the deepest grief.  Thank you, all, and hope to see you again soon.

 

Peace & Be Well,

Hi Everyone,

 

The Grief Watch and Dougy Center benefit concert in Portland on Feb 18th fast approaches.  We have been blessed by upcoming coverage in the Oregonian next Monday, Willamette Week on Wednesday, and an interview on KINK radio, as well as donations of time, money and services from a number of Portlanders and Northwest businesses.  If you plan to attend I highly recommend going to Brown Paper Tickets now and pre-purchasing before everyonefinds out.

 

Visit www.griefwatch.com and www.dougy.org to find out what you'll be supporting.  Both groups are filled with information, knowledge and experience on how to grieve, heal, and live after the kinds of losses and tragedies people fear most. 

 

Chris Kokesh and I are coming up with a setlist, I'm charting out some new material for Enemies and heading to rehearsal tonight.  If music is healing-tainment, the 18th will be a sterling example.  We hope you'll join us.

Chris Kokesh to open The Josephoenix Memorial Benefit Concert Feb 18!!

 

Hi Friends and Neighbors,

 

Tickets for the Josephoenix Memorial Benefit Concert for Grief Watch & The Dougy Center on February 18th are now on sale at Brown Paper Tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/219801

 

Proceeds from the show go 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.

 

I'm pleased to announce that Chris Kokesh will be the special guest opener for the evening's concert.  Any of you who have heard her song "Lucy" - seen here on YouTube - know that she has the right heart for the job.  Many of you have come to know and love this talented songwriter, fiddler, singer and guitarist with me over these past few years.  I'm delighted to have her there and will join her as part of the opening set as well.

 

Lincoln Crockett & Enemies will headline the event - this is music the way I hear and feel it: acoustic, electric, jazz, bluegrass, dynamic, virtuosic, improvised and limitless.  Enemies features my most frequent collaborators of the past few years - Jim McKeon on guitar, Peter Schwimmer on banjo & mandolin, Tyler Smith on bass, Andy Love on drums, and introducing Jeff Baxter on keys.  (Who knows, Chris might even add some harmony & fiddle, she's been known to do that sort of thing.)

 

This event is very close to our hearts musically and as a benefit show, but it is also a memorial for the one year anniversary of the birth and death of our son Joseph Phoenix. We have 300 tickets to sell and we want to sell them all. We hope to see you there and if you wouldn’t mind passing this email and word on to others in your community it would be greatly appreciated.

January with Beth Wood + February Benefit Concert!

 

Hi Friends and Neighbors,

 

Season's Greetings!  I must have been a good boy this year, 'cause for Christmas this year I'm getting 2012.  Here, share some:

 

In January I'm genuinely excited to be playing the Lighthouse Concert Series with the incomparable Beth Wood.  Beth is an award-winning, Eugene-based songwriter who has been featured on OPB's Oregon ArtBeat and a friend I've come to know and love from Sisters Songcamp.  She just lights up the stage with her 100 watt, barefoot self.  

 

We'll each be doing solo sets, and joining each other on a number or two.  This wonderful houseconcert series outside of Portland is going to be a great way to start off the year.  Hope you'll come join us for a special evening:

2012 has a special place in my heart: in February, the first Josephoenix Memorial Concertwill raise awareness for and support the work of Grief Watch and The Dougy Center.  Both organizations are priceless resources for people and families dealing with grief and loss.  

 

When my family and I suffered the loss of our baby boy on Valentine's Day 2011 we were buoyed by the presence these Portland-based, national-caliber non-profits.  Grief is a natural part of all life and change, yet few people know about how well it can be handled, no matter how large or small.  I encourage you to visit their websites: www.griefwatch.com andwww.dougy.org.


We hope you'll come join us for a night of great music.  I've pulled together a dynamic set featuring my solo work and a genre-bending dream band of mine, Lincoln Crockett & Enemies.  


I'll let you know when ticket presales begin in January.  We plan to add an opening performer as well.  Let us know if you would like to volunteer or contribute in some way.  Thank you ahead of time for being a part of it:

Hi Everyone,

 

Over the years I have been blessed to play for a living, I've discovered that that hard-to-pin-down magic that inspired me to play music kid is universal.  

 

As a teacher at Sound Roots here in Portland, I see firsthand how much all music lovers hunger for that common feeling that makes music so amazing.  

 

So I'm excited to announce that I've created a special, one-of-a-kind, four-night workshop to do exactly that.  I hope you'll join me:

 

 

Thursdays, January 12, 19, 26 & Feb 2, 2012
Small Miracles - The Music Connection Workshop

In this four-part dynamic workshop you’ll experience the kind of spontaneous, miraculous music making many people think is reserved for the greats.  Through instruction, examples, games and more you’ll have the chance to connect with the deep fundamentals that are the real magic of music.

 

The class is intended to help aspiring musicians find their strength, take experienced musicians to the next level, and improve everyone’s ability to feel and make music.  The exercises and group activities alone will improve every note you make.  Learn to find the groove, to let the solo take you, to play better with and for others, and much more.  Open to singers and instrumentalists of all levels and styles.

 

Four-Part Workshop Dates:

SPB's Electric Double-Header 10/15 & 10/22 - See BOTH!!

 

Hi Music Lovers,

I too LOVE music, and I am blessed to be surrounded by remarkable musicians.  So the only way to follow the great time I had picking bluegrass at The Old Liberty Theater earlier this month is to go electric with Lincoln Crockett's SPB (aka Special People Brigade, the "Play In The Yard" band, and other things).  The next two Saturday nights you can join me doing exactly that.

 

Here's the secret: To really catch the unexpected magic that happens when we plug in --> come see us IN PORTLAND AND UP IN TROUT LAKE!!!

 

Why? 1. exeptional musicians tearing up the page and playing beautiful, funky, danceable fusion, and 2. The White Eagle and The Trout Lake Country Inn are priceless hangouts we're lucky to have in the Pacific NW.  Be here now:

Meet Dan Eichler!

 

I'm proud and excited to announce that I've partnered up with Dan Eichler - formerly music booker for Borders Books and currently booker for Mississippi Pizza in Portland, OR - to take over my day-to-day booking and promotion workload.  Dan is a facile connecting to people as I am putting together chords. 

Dan making it possible not only for me to devote more time to my family and healing practice, but he shares my vision for my career - regional, rooted, sustainable, enjoyable, remarkable - AND it just so happens is first cousin's with one of my oldest friends west of the Mississippi River.  What more can I ask for?

Thanks and welcome to the team, Dan!!

Special Friday show at Birdfest & Bluegrass 10/7!

 

It's October (wow, really?) and that means its time for the one-of-a-kind Birdfest & Bluegrass Festival  Over the past several years I've had the pleasure of playing as part of the fest with Cross-eyed Rosie, The Josh Cole Band, and Chris Kokesh (twice) but this year is different.  

 

The organizers invited me to be the featured artist at a special show at the Old Liberty Theater on Friday, October 7th.  At 7 pm I'll kick it off with a solo/duo set trading off guitar and mandolin duties with guest picker Nicolas Miranda.  For the second set we'll be joined by fellow Cross-eyed Rosie alum Jason Mellow on bass and Peter Schwimmer on banjo. 

 

I first pulled together these three of Portland's finest bluegrass pickers in December 2010 and formed the project sometimes referred to as Bloom Out Inside.  Go ahead, say it: "Blue Mountainside", yeah, like that.  We call it 'Indie Chamber Bluegrass' and it is a whole ton of talent and real musical fun.  

 

Get your tickets now at the Old Liberty Theater Box Office, (360) 887-7260.

Lincoln Crockett & Chris Kokesh Friday!! & More...

 

Hi Everyone,

 

It feels like its been SO long since I've played for most of you!  And I guess it's true, it's been a good summer here in Portland, and I've been doing more work musically behind the scenes than onstage.  So let's make each opportunity count.

 

Chris Kokesh and I have played dozens of shows together over the past several years.  She is hands-down one of the finest professional performing songwriters in the region, a fine fiddler, and in my opinion something of a Portland treasure.  Am I over-selling?  I'm excited for this Friday!

 

We don't get to play together as often these days so it's really a special occasion when we reunite.  While I've been growing my practice and playing with Bloom Out Inside & SPB, Chris has been touring in support of her fantastic album October Valentine.  This Friday at Portland's beautiful Alberta Rose Theatre we'll be kicking off a great night of Northwest music in a co-bill with Eugene's favorite dance/party band The Sugar Beets

Nicolas Miranda Saturday, SPB & Nicole Berke 7/22!

 

Hi friends,

 

If you sit around and think long enough about how satisfying it is to play at the Alberta Street Pub, it will happen.  Alas, if only the sitting around part were true!  But the rest is:Strangled Darlings and the Pub here in Portland invited Nicolas Miranda and I to join them for some genre-bending, string-based shenanegans and hijinks this coming Saturday.  Low cover, hi-flying fun.  Duck!  Nicolas and I start things off at 9:30.

 

The following following Friday I want to introduce you to a new friend of mine, Nicole Berke.  Nicole and I teach together at Sound Roots and in a talented pool, she is hands-down one of the most talentedest.  Her effortlessly soulful voice and rich piano playing will kick off the evening, followed by the wide-open electric fusion of Lincoln Crockett's SPB, the newly rechristened foursome behind my album Play In The Yard.  We're gonna let it all hang out.

 

More dates - including some fun things people have been asking for - and news to come in 2011.  Looking forward to playing for you.

Bloom Out Inside Saturday!! + More News!!

 

Hi Everyone,

 

This Saturday, June 4, I'm going to let you in on a little secret - I have a new band: Bloom Out Inside.  Nicolas Miranda on guitar, Jason Mellow on bass, Peter Schwimmer on banjo and I have developed high-level psychic 'chamber stringband' chemistry and our own genre: Prograzz.

 

After Bloom Out Inside's first performance back in December booking agent Daniel Eichler called us "The best thing I've seen since the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival."  We're heading into the studio later in June to make a one-of-a-kind album due out later this year.  This will be our 3rd public performance, the first since March and we want you to be a part of it.  Tell your friends.  We're growing something special.  Come see what blooms.

I'm proud to announce that in May I moved my energy healing practice to Cypress Beauty & Wellness in Sellwood, Oregon!  At Cypress I help my amazing clients heal in ways that often defy description.  If you're one of my music supporters who comes in for energy work, as a thank you I'll give you a free download of one of my albums, your choice.  If you're interested you can book directly online here or visit LincolnCrockettEnergy.com and learn more.

 

And don't forget about lessons at Sound Roots School of Modern Music.  At Sound Roots I get to spill my secrets on guitar, mandolin, voice, songwriting and acoustic performance.  I can help you become a better musician no matter what your age, interests or skill level.  My slate is almost full but there are still openings and I wanted you guys to have dibs.  I love to share so stop wishing you could do it and call Sound Roots directly at (503) 282 - 9999.

 

Music is healing, healing is an art, and life is good.  While I'm playing less lately, I truly believe I'm making some of the best music of my life right now.  More is in the works for the future and you'll be the first to know.

Surprise Portland Show Saturday (No Fooling!) and More in April...

 

Hi Everyone,

When this Saturday opened up suddenly at Vino Vixen's in Portland they called us first.  The boys in the electric band and I have always made real music there.  The atmosphere in that room gets along famously with what we do.  To make things more interesting, electric guitar guru Jim McKeon is otherwise occupied, so in his stead we've invited acoustic guitarist and mandolin whiz-ard Nicolas Miranda to join myself, Tyler Smith on bass and Andy Love on drums.  Solo duo, trio and quartet combos will erupt, as will the music.  Color me excited.  Short notice but hope to see you there, this will be a unique evening in my musical world.

In other April news, McMinnville, Oregon, I'm finally coming back down to Hotel Oregon with Jim McKeon on Friday the 29th.  And Everyone in the Portland area be ready for the James Faretheewell CD Release on April 30th at Artichoke Music.  This will be an intimate and beautiful songwriter night not to be missed.  More on everything below and more still at my Calendar

eBand DoubleHeader this weekend! and more!!

 

Hi Everyone,
 
Happy 2011!  We made it!  The earth hasn't melted down (entirely) and despite a seemingly consistent amount of suffering in 2010, by and large most people weren't blown up last year.  It always warms my heart to see us humans makin' it on our own like this.  Nice work, everyone!
 
As the winter rolls through the Northern Hemisphere in its miriad of predominantly cold and wet forms I am reminded of the paint scheme on the inside of a Starbucks.  No, really.  When I'm out in the cold and happen by those earthy shades it always looks warm and inviting.  So in this time of year - and all of it thereafter, too - may your heart be painted like the inside of a Starbucks for any passersby out in the cold.
 
"eBand"?  Its still Jim, Tyler, Andy and I electrified and plugged in.  Honestly, we've never settled on a name amongst ourselves so why start now?  We'll be in Gearhart, OR at McMenamin's Sand Trap this Friday (1/21) and in Portland at Vino Vixens (1/22).  You too?  Sweet!
 
Thanks to everyone who came and made my month of happy hours at the White Eagle in Portland so much fun.  In spite of my careful planning there was something surprising and different every week including a duo one night with Nicolas Miranda and another great night with Chris Kokesh.  Chris and I especially would like to do these again in 2011 and are just looking for the place!  Any suggestions? 
 
You can find all of my gigs for the next month and more info about each show at my calendar page.  I do love playing for you and I hope you'll join me for one of these events.  If there's somewhere near you you'd like to see me perform drop me a note and lets make it happen in 2011!   
  
I've been spending a lot of time lately philosophizing at my blog.  Check it out!  And in this and all things otherwise...
 
Peace & Be Well,
Lincoln

Chris Kokesh & I @ Eagle Hour This Thurs!

 

Hey Holiday Folks,

Chris Kokesh will be my special guest tomorrow night at Eagle Hour!  Between my healing practice and Chris travelling more and more we haven't had a chance to play as often so this is a special occasion.  So bring yourself and all those relatives straggling in and come join us.

Also come by Thursday, December 30th and I'll do it again.  Chris this week, Nicolas Miranda joined me last week, Jim McKeon and Tyler Smith the week before... who's going to be there next week?  I have no idea.  Will you?  It's the last one and then I'll hand it back to some other lucky performer.  Come and we'll share a Kris Kringle.

Happy Holidays, ya'll.

Peace & Be Well,
Lincoln

Bluegrass THIS SAT!! & Much More in Dec

 

Hi All My Angels & Devils, 

Wow, when it rains it really pours around here! In addition to the sky, my December is just full of music and I couldn't be more happy about it.  Anyone else want to throw a gig at me? 

 

We kick off with something really close to my heart.  After the picking circle late-night at last month's Alberta Rose show I'm all fired up.  For all of you who love truly excellent bluegrass and acoustic music as much as I do then you must catch the show THIS SATURDAY at 9 pm at Mississippi Pizza.  I've been wanting to do something like this for a long time!  I'll be joined by guitarist Nicolas Miranda, banjo player Peter Schwimmer and bassist Jason Mellow for a spontaneous romp through high-end bluegrass, back-breaking traditionals, mind-bending originals, playful covers and acoustic music.  If you catch one show this month, make it this one!  Details at the top of the list below!

Thanks to everyone who made last month's cd release show for PLAY IN THE YARD so much fun and such a success!  We're continuing EVERY THURSDAY this month starting 12/9 with Electric Happy Hours at the White Eagle, 5:30 - 7:30.  Guitarist Jim McKeon and Bassist Tyler Smith will be there, then on Friday 12/10 we'll be a quartet again when drummer Andrew Love joins us to swing back down to Salem's Boon's Treasury.  Swing by and join us for a pint. 

I'm also doing something that's become rare lately: playing three solo shows!  The first at Rock Creek Tavern 12/8, then on December 19 I’ll be back at Mississippi Pizza, this time with Seattle's Thistle & Rose!  We'll be doing three important things: playing a show on a Sunday, playing an early (6 – 8 pm) all-ages show, and I'll be playing a full solo set.  The third solo set will be a the Solstice Woodfire Cafe in Bingen, WA for their annula Winter Solstice party.  I hear there will be fire dancers, woa!  Playing solo is still the essence of all the music that I make, and I hope you'll join me for one of these evenings.   

 

I'm looking forward to December and I hope you are too.  More details below and full information on my calendar.

------------------------------------This Saturday!!!-----------------------------------

Saturday, December 4th, 2010
Lincoln Crockett, Nicolas Miranda, Peter Schwimmer & Jason Mellow - 9 - 11:15 pm
Mississippi Pizza Pub

3552 N Mississippi St
Portland, OR 97220
US
503-288-3231

Price: $8

I will be joined by guitarist Nicolas Miranda, banjo player Peter Schwimmer and bassist Jason Mellow for a night of high-end bluegrass, back-breaking traditionals, mind-bending originals, playful covers and acoustic music with real spontaneity.
 
Nicolas Miranda is a Berklee School of Music dropout who, like his flat-pickin’ hero David Grier, can’t resist bending the boundaries of his genre.  Longtime fans of bluegrass and acoustic music in the Northwest will recognize Peter Schwimmer as a truly world-class banjo player who can play in the box, out of the box and all over the box.  Jason Mellow and I played together in 
Cross-eyed Rosie, and he's a talented upright and electric player who is comfortable in any genre.  This one-time all-star quartet will be joining forces for a shoot-from-the-hip romp through our favorite musics.  

Guests are encouraged as well to donate extra cash or canned food to benefit the Oregon Food Bank.

Join the weekly healing updates

 

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to all of my clients and supporters who helped make my energy healing practice a reality.  Judging from the strength of the sessions we've been having it was clearly overdue.  Here is my standing information:

 Energy Healing Office, Hours & Rate

        Energy work knows no financial boundaries, so if you or someone you know needs healing but cannot afford my full price please let me know.

Join the healing list

I’m returning the LINKLIST to all things musical, but in future weeks I’ll be putting out a separate email featuring stories, information, humor, tools and links about healing in its many forms.  Reply to this email if you’d like to get these little weekly doses of goodness.  Like this one:


Where we’re heading today

Your body is full of energy, running through your limbs and organs and life.  When you’re with people who think and feel like you and value what you do you are in your comfort zones in the world.  The single biggest common values I see in the modern world – in spades in just about every nook and cranny  – fall into three basic categories that for shorthand I’ll call roots, feelings and thoughts.  There’s more, but we’ll get to that.  If you’re aware of these three things you can make it a long way in the world.

Roots are basically human communities we’re heavily committed to and involved with.  We’ve got groups coming out the wazoo, don’t we?  I and the people I meet identify ourselves by things like last name, the city state or geographic government we support (or don’t, but we’ll still notice), clan, company, brand or fashion preference, race, gender, educational institution, military history, social organizations, tax bracket, etc.  Maybe I don’t meet a lot of folks, but these things seem pretty common factors.  If I understand human history we’ve had this stuff hardwired for tens of thousands of years or more.  We’re aware of the importance of roots.

We understand feelings, too.  Is there an emotion from the depths of sadness, tragedy or anger to the heights of happiness and joy that has not been effectively encapsulated by soap operas, art, music or theater, understood by an audience and rendered cliché through repetition for 3,000 years?  We know about our feelings.

Thoughts are super important these days.  Modern education requires us to imprint information on our memories and repeat it for use when required, an idea mirrored in our daily life.  Our minds are full of letters, numbers, symbols, addresses, pin numbers, phone numbers, passwords, financial amounts, speed limits, public laws and countless pieces of information about how our complex world works.  We need to know and manage all of it, or at least enough to function.  Industry, architecture and urban living have spread on earth like hotcakes over the past 100 years.  If you’ve managed to turn on a computer and read this you’ve already succeeded in using your thoughts in myriad ways.

We’re able to do more than these three and we know it.  The number one new thing we’re waking up to – more than anything else right now, and I’ll prove it – is…

--------

Ooooh, cliff-hanger!

If you want to read more, reply to this email

and I’ll send you the punch line next week.

--------

The LINKLIST will now return to all things musical.  Thanks and I’m looking forward to playing for you again in the future.  For now, pop in a CD – there’s new music here – while I keep writing and practicing.

Peace & Be Well,
Lincoln

Weekly Healing Update 10/29/10

 

Thank you to everyone who has come in for energy healing during September and October.  I’ve been 1/3 to 2/3 full all but two weeks, and that’s for a brand new practice!  Together we’ve worked on blocks to money, healing deep emotional wounds, coping with long-term health conditions, easing spiritual and emotional turmoil, personal growth and more.  I worked with everyone from a computer programmer to an LA rock star and was amazed at how profoundly and successfully each client was willing to address their healing.  This work is truly a joy to me and I was honored to work with each of you. 

On Monday Nov 1 I’ll announce the regular price for my services, but if you feel you’re in need of healing and were unable to book a hands-on or distance session during the donation period, schedule now and I’ll be happy to grandfather you in.

Information on the Healing page

Stuff you may not know about energy work

Every day out in the world you pick up energy that isn’t yours, from that weirdo at the bus stop (sorry, that was me), from that jerk on the road (my bad), that lady in the grocery store (I was hoping to keep that a secret!) or keeping up with the news (lots of happy stories that directly affect you, right?).   When it sticks with you after they’re gone, you’ve picked something up or stirred up your own stuff.  You also accumulate all kinds of junk in the course of your week from frustrations or disappointments at work, at home and the like. 

All of these things usually slough off in the first several minutes of a healing session.  From there we unpack heavier baggage, the more persistent energies we carry with us.  This is the stuff that shapes your life long-term.  By the time you’ve got an illness, injury, emotional turmoil or chronic disorder in your body, the blocks and imbalances you carry with you have been at work a long time.  Energy work charges, clears, balances and restructures your energy field to help you unwind, heal, and in some cases even reverse conditions and ailments.

This is not a get-out-of-jail-free card and I don’t promise miracles, but yes, Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore.  Some of you know this from experience already, some are still skeptical, but for all of you, I’m ready when you are.

Be in touch.  I’m happy to take any questions and believe me, skepticism you may have.  And visit this website's Healing page for more information

Peace & Be Well,

Lincoln

11/20 CD Release!! Convergence This Sunday!! New "Home" Video!!

 

Hi Everyone,


Announcing my CD Release Show!  I'll be on "Convergence" Nationwide this Sunday!  New live performance of "When Will You Come Home" on YouTube, from right when I came home!  Let's get right into it:

It's Big Show Time with a Double CD Release! 

Double CD Release Flyer

On his birthday weekend, Brad Creel & the Reel Deel celebrate release their new CD, “Probably Not”.   I love Brad, his music and humor, and so does the Portland Mercury, who said "Gifted with the pen, the punch line, and the guitar, Creel is a vulnerable performer with a deep sense of humor.”The Reel Deel consists of local guitar and mandolin wizard Sat Atma Singh, Ben Grosscup on bass, drummer Mark Pederson, and (Angels & Devils Alike engineer & designer) Tom Frisch on keyboards.  The new CD also features local musicians Chris Funk (of the Decemberists) on pedal steel, Thad Beckman on guitar, and Chris Kokesh (of Misty River) on fiddle.

I also officially released my new full electric-band disk PLAY IN THE YARD on my birthday in January this year, on the edge of sabbatical.  Now that I'm back, let's celebrate!  My band at the show and on the album are virtuoso blues-fusion guitarist Jim McKeon, bassist Tyler Smith and drummer Andrew Love.  Last year we holed up at a cabin in Trout Lake, WA and laid down an entire album basically in one take - and it is GOOD. 

PLAY IN THE YARD will be available at the show for $5, and each ticket holder will get a free Brad Creel & the Reel Deel CD!  The Alberta Rose is a historic, newly renovated theater on NE 30th and Alberta in Portland, OR, with cushy seats and a great stage.  Tickets can be purchased in advance at http://www.albertarosetheatre.com/?p=659.   Each of our last CD release shows sold out so you may want to get your tickets soon!  The show starts at 8 pm and is 21+.

Energy Healing Begins!

 

Hi Everyone, 

Here on the LinkList you know me as a songwriter and performer, but have you been over to visit my website’s Healing page? 

Truth be told, I'm not actually a trained musician - I'm trained as an energy healer.  I have taken clients sporadically for years and most recently was on staff at the Sister’s Folk Festival Americana Song Academy as their resident healer.  During my sabbatical it became clear that it’s time to offer healing work directly. 

Don’t worry, I’m still playing music, the two are entirely extensions of the same thing for me.  You know what it feels like to be moved by a piece of my music.  With healing work I move energy as well, but my hands are the instrument.  It’s just me and an audience of one, and we can address specific issues more deeply.  I simply love this work!  The best part is that this work can be performed over any distance.  For all of you who don’t live in the Portland, OR area and can’t see me in person, read on for more information about healing work at a distance.

While I'm getting established I am offering one-hour sessions for donation!  You'll know in an hour if the work is effective for you and you can offer whatever you feel is appropriate.  Starting November 1st, my usual rate of $90/hour will apply, so whether you are a seasoned recipient or just want to check out what I do, now is an excellent time to experience energy work! 

Come check out the new office space!

Recent sessions have amazed even me.  If you or someone you know is in need of healing, please come see me or let them know.   Schedule a session by emailing or calling me at 503.957.0151.

More about energy healing

Energy healing works from the idea that everything is essentially made up of vibrations of energy.  Each of us has our own energy field influencing every aspect of our lives. We can sense and affect this field directly.  As a healer I work with clients to charge, clear, balance and restructure their energy field.  Energy work can help with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual recovery, healing and growth, and to improve your relationships and day-to-day well-being.  It is an excellent complement to traditional and non-traditional treatments like Western and Eastern medicine, chiropractic, massage therapy, homeopathy, naturopathy, counseling and more.  I have helped clients reduce stress and the patterns that cause it, heal from emotional and physical trauma, headaches/migraines, infections, ease the effects of chronic disease and disease treatments, speed recovery from illness, injury or surgery, cope with divorce, death and emotional upheaval, and grow personally and spiritually.  No two sessions are alike.  I cannot guarantee what will occur for you, but most of the people with whom I work experience increased well-being and improvement.

How distance healing works

Remember, if you can’t see me during office hours or don’t live in the Portland area, we can work together at any distance on a more flexible schedule with no loss in efficacy.  At the appointed time you find a quiet place where you can rest and call me.  We’ll stay on the line while I work.  If you’ve never experienced this you’ll be amazed.

Call 503.957.0151 or email now to schedule a session.  You can also visit my website here to find out more.  I will only send out one more LinkList about solely about healing, so if you’d like to get future healing-only updates please reply to this email directly.

Thanks and I hope this finds you well.  More on music in the future!

Peace & Be Well,

Lincoln

Birdfest, my Band, Halloween and More!

 

Hi Everyone,

It is soooo good to be back in the NW.  I realize I said the same thing last LinkList and the time before that too, but I'm feeling it.  And I'm here to contribute.

Chris Kokesh and I are excited to be kicking the month off together again on the stage at the Old Liberty Theater headlining the wonderful BirdFest and Bluegrass Festival.  Gonna be a weekend filled with some of the best picking in the NW.  This year the fam and I are going to make a day of it in Ridgefield, there's so much going on.  Come join in the fun!

Last year I took a weekend at a cabin in Trout Lake with some of the guys from The Rocktet and *pop*, made an electric album.  We're finally going to celebrate PLAY IN THE YARD in November in a double cd-release party with Brad Creel and the Reel Deel.  To warm up, Jim, Tyler, Andy and I are doing back-to-back shows, in Salem 10/15 and Portland 10/16.  It's what I do best, turned to 11.

Acoustic guitarist Nicolas Miranda and I are rounding out the month with a Halloween Haunting at McMenamin's Edgefield.  Costumes, goodies, and yes, acoustic MJ covers.  Come show off your ‘holiday spirits’, we’ll be waiting for you… Mwah Ha Ha Ha Haaaa...!

I'm also popping up at Abundant Life Center in Vancouver, WA and at the PSU Farmer's Market in the Park Blocks in Portland, so there's a good chance I'll see you around.  Looking forward to playing for you in October.  Complete details below and even more on the calendar page.

PCSL, Sister's, Ellis, Jan and Rosie!

 

Hi Everyone,

So fun to be back in the NW.  The past month of shows and friends has really reminded me why I returned.  I just travelled around the world and across the country and truly believe that we live in the best place on earth. 

Things continue for me this month starting Sunday at the Portland Center for Spiritual Living, then the entire next week I’ll be resident healer at the Sisters Folk Festival Americana Song Academy, then returning to open up with Chris Kokesh for one of our favorite singer/songwriters, a beautiful soul named Ellis, and finally playing a sold out houseconcert with Jan Hutchison.  As if that’s not enough you must come to Cross-eyed Rosie’s last dance at the Laurelthirst in Portland on 9/11.  It really will be our last hurrah, there are no presales, its only $8 and it will be packed.  Come early and stay long!

Trout Lake Inn, Cross-eyed Rosie & Jan&Rob;'s Houseconcert!

 

Hi Everyone,

 

It feels so good to be back in the Pacific Northwest.  After a deeply rewarding sabbatical, my run down through Washington was fun and returning to so many friends in Portland was overwhelmingly special.  Now that I'm back where I belong I'll be doing more energy healing work and playing more selectively.  If I'm excited about a show I know you're gonna love it too.  

 

Calling all Trout Lake Lovers to the Trout Lake Country Inn Friday August 27!  Calling all Cross-eyed Rosie fans - and anyone who has never seen us together live - to our last hurrah at The Laurelthirst in Portland on September 11!  And if you love houseconcerts or are hankering for an intimate solo set, Jan and Rob's is the place to be on Sept 19 - get your tickets now!  Everything for the rest of August and all of September - with complete details - is on the Calendar page.  

 

Looking forward to seeing you soon.

 

Peace & Be Well,

Lincoln

MD Houseconcert This Saturday And More!

 

Hello Everyone,

It's nice to be on sabbatical, but I am excited for every chance I get to do what I love.  That's why I'm excited about the next month.  This Saturday I'll be playing a houseconcert with Parthenon Huxley here in Maryland.  June's houseconcert in Virginia was a smash success (Thanks, Jeff & Erin!) and I'm ready for more.  Sunday I'm returning to play for the people at CommUnity On The Hill in Washington, DC.  Next week I fly to Minnesota with my family and play twice, before returning to the Northwest in August for four more dates culminating in my long-anticipated return to Portland, Oregon on Friday the 13th!  There's so much I want you to know about the shows so please visit the calendar, find a date near you and read more about it.  I can't wait to play for you again.

I've finally added a Healing tab this month to lincolncrockett.com.  Folks who know me already know this has always been a part of what I do.  Now you can learn more about what underlies my songs and my thinking, and learn about another way we can connect. 

If you read to the bottom there's an extra special secret I'll share with you.

Houseconcert at the Crockett's

5808 Sonoma Rd
Bethesda, MD 20817
USA
301.530.9284

Price: $20

A true homecoming show, and I'm excited to be joined by Parthenon Huxley a world-class musician we discovered living on the same block! According to my parents, "We learned about Parthenon Huxley when our grandson fell for the enormous inflatable, animatronic Halloween decorations four doors up the block. It turns out that our neighbor spent nine years as lead guitarist for a latter day version of the world-famous, multi-platinum selling British symphonic rock group ELO. "P. Hux" has a long recording history as a solo artist beginning with his Columbia Records LP "Sunny Nights" which Rolling Stone called "a monumental debut." Huxley went on to win Album of the Year Awards in the indie press for his albums "Deluxe" and "Homemade Spaceship." Parthenon has collaborated with and shared the stage with countless famous names including Crosby, Stills and Nash, Cheap Trick, Brian Wilson, Aimee Mann, Joan Jett, David Lee Roth, Bo Diddley, Linda Ronstadt, Foreigner and many more. A masterful guitarist, singer and songwriter, P. Hux has been dubbed a "pop visionary", "rock's most underrated pop genius" and a songwriting "master." Visit www.parthenonhuxley.com to get to know him more!"

Please RSVP in advance. Seating is limited, first come first served. Doors open at 7:15 pm for gathering and hors d'oeuvres. Please bring wine/beer/drink of choice. To reserve a space, RSVP to margssc@verizon.net, or call. For the uninitiated, a house concert is a chance to experience music in a warm and intimate environment. You're invited into someone's living room to share in a performance by one of their favorite musicians. It's a chance to meet the performers and have them sign their CD. A house concert is also a great social evening of friends and neighbors. The proceeds of houseconcerts go to the musicians and make up a vital part of the livelihood of an independent musician.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shhhh: the secret is Cross-eyed Rosie and I are putting together a special reunion show in Portland in September!  I'll tell you more next month.  Meanwhile I hope you're enjoying your life and that we can see each other soon.

Peace & Be Well,
Lincoln

My family and I have since racked up miles and smiles during four months in Thailand, and it seems just barely made it out before the worst of the government protest violence recently in Bangkok. We are glad to be back, and will be visiting our family for the next two months, before returning to Portland, OR in August to make a home. As soon as I hop off the plane in Seattle there will be music, beginning with dates in Bellingham (8/5), Bellevue (8/12) and Portland on Friday the 13th! I'll let you know more in future LinkLists, along with other information and special announcements soon. Meanwhile, visit the website, keep listening to the music, and I'm excited to have the chance to play for you again! I'm eternally grateful. Peace & Be Well, Lincoln

February Note from Sabbatical

 
Hi everyone, greetings from mid-February on sabbatical in Thailand (more on that below): My extended break began full-force and radical after the farewell show in November as my wife, Alicia, and I packed up our belongings and squeezed them in a 10x10 box. This was equal parts painful and liberating. We felt burdened by day to day upkeep of a modern American home, but in love with the same burden. The contents of our little mountain cabin fit so well that we kept more than we expected. Lotsa flotsam and jetsam - a couch, a desk, dining table and chairs, houseplants, our beloved mountain truck 'The Mule' - we gave away, loaned out, stashed and stored with friends and family. We were ready to look for a larger home anyway, but our son was the most sad to leave. Hopefully the worst that can happen to him, other than expensive therapy bills, is a tendency to feel rootless and inclined to travel... just like his mom and pop! (oh boy...) We boiled everything down to a backpack each by January. When I say we're taking a sabbatical from everything, we mean EVERYTHING. Several people in my life have expressed drooling envy at this, but I have a confession: I'M A HOMEBODY!! I love: 1. a fridge with my food in it, and 2. a bed with my sheets on it, somewhere out there, knowing I can return to it. I think I got myself into deeper water than I was expecting, but lesson learned. All the more likely that you'll hear me back doing music sooner. On that note (pun relished), I can feel the music rising in me again, like sap. Perhaps wiser musicians anticipate the need for creative rebirthing periodically, but I came to this the old fasioned way - burnout. On this trip I have brought my mandolin (very well insured!). I pick it up when the muse strikes me, utterly without pressure or need driving me. I've been finding new nooks and crannies. Just last night Alicia asked "Did you write that? That was beautiful," after one of dozens of little, aimless meanderings around the fretboard that stay with me day after day. Perhaps one or two will grow into 'Gone Away Pt.2' or something fun. Right now I'm sensitive to the wind whispering in my heart, listening for the way forward from here, just as I've always done. By the way, I've been listening to the new disks, IN PICTURES and PLAY IN THE YARD all the time, have you? These songs are my own messages in a bottle from the deep inside to the light of day. When I finally decided on sabbatical I had to come to terms with not being able to release and tour a new disk as I'd been hoping to do. Thankfully, this and my limited time available set just the boundaries I needed to know what to do, and just like with ANGELS AND DEVILS ALIKE, the results have exceeded my expectations. Some of these songs I've played out once or twice, some only for friends, some, like my new favorite "Summerbird", have never been heard. On IN PICTURES Tom Frisch and I captured them in all their glory, the best I ever played them, and still managed to find new sounds and new instruments. PLAY IN THE YARD, meanwhile, makes me smile everytime. Playing with Jim, Tyler and Andy behind me was like heaven to a normally solo performer. Like, dude, imagine - Tyler was there holding down JUST THE BASS NOTES!!!! Unbelieveable. I could go on and on and on and on, but my wife has taught me better manners. Get the disks and hear for yourself. Have I mentioned I hadn't enjoyed a real vacation in, like, what feels like a decade? Guess where we have gone now! (OK tons of you know already, but, ta da) I'm in Bangkok, Thailand right now, feeling grateful that U.S. cities have good sanitation, and grateful that Thai food is so amazingly good. Its been great to be warm in the winter, to be well cared for at all of our stays, to get in my first ever tropical island beach time, and to have a change to decompress and take a long look at life. What do I want in the future? What did I like about what I doing? Is this really the life I sought? What of all these answers is something permanent and lasting, and which were just circumstantial, satisfactions that might be found in greater measure in a different presentation. Is music the highest expression of the joy I feel bubbling up inside me? What new risks might I be inclined to take in the future? What do I really need, and what do I really NOT need to be happy!? The answers are coming. They change shape a little everyday. Geographically speaking we're going on to India next - a place Alicia has always wanted to go and who's modal music has thrilled me since George Harrison. Its time for more new things. What new things are you getting into these days? Do you still feel the 'Recession', or are you ready to think of it as 'The Progression' to something better and closer to your heart. Have you been working at your dreams lately? I'd love to hear about it. Drop me a note here thru link@lincolncrockett.com or sign in on the guestbook. Meanwhile, enjoy the music, and as I told a friend recently, may all the happiness you can stand be stalking you in broad daylight. Peace and be well, Lincoln

I am pleased to announce the release of not one but TWO full-length collections of music: IN PICTURES and PLAY IN THE YARD.

You've been asking for more and I couldn't leave you hanging! These albums are digital download only, and are available right now through www.CDBaby.com. IN PICTURES is a stripped-down, solo trip through live favorites recorded for the first time like 'Takin' A Break' and 'Why Do We Hurt The Ones We Love', alongside rarities like 'Sight Of Love' and 'Ya Gotta Know', and favorite new songs that have never been heard before like 'Summerbird' and 'Hard Heart'.

Kicked off by a duo version of 'Glory Halelujah', we streched out and rocked out new songs like 'Mississippi Moonrise', solo favorites like 'Psychopaths', older songs like 'Dog', and even the Cross-eyed Rosie song 'Moonbeams & Kerosene'. I love these recordings. Find it and more about it at www.cdbaby.com/cd/lincolncrockett1 This week my family and I are hopping a jet one-way to Thailand, and if you're lucky I'll get bored of beaches quickly and turn to Facebook and video blogging hundreds of new songs. But in my heart my #1 goal is to de-stress and spend time getting to know my wife and son again, so for now, enjoy these new disks as my personal messages to you, and we'll see each other ahead on greener shores. Thanks Everyone! With love and gratitude, Lincoln

with Mo Phillips, Chris Kokesh & Jason Spooner!

 
Hi Everyone, As we spin out another set of days on this lucky planet a weekend approacheth! And you'll have 4 chances to catch me, each in different settings... Thursday for the kids: Mo Phillips (www.mophillips.com) is on fire, and he's writing songs about it. His massive and childishly free creativity already recently released "Train Beard", his first kids album, but he's even got another coming (shh: I'll be on it!). Bring your kids grown and small as we gloriously goof at our family friendly kids show. Friday for Washington: Chris Kokesh (www.chriskokesh.com)? Do I have to talk about what a heartachingly beautiful songwriter, singer, fiddler, guitarist or woman she is? Nah. But we are playing at the Upstage together with Blues, Swing, & Hillbilly Jazz whiz'z Southbound. Seattlites, this is worth the trip! Saturday for heartwarming: Chris and I will be sharing intimate show at a very lucky house near Lewis & Clarke College. Seating is limited and reservations are required. Call or email Rene at zingarellir@aol.com. (Call early as the last house concert sold out!). AND Sunday for hardcore fun: I love what I do, and lately I have been having an even greater time than normal playing solo, there's great juju around. So when Jason Spooner (www.jasonspooner.com) invited me to join him at his swing thru Portland I snapped it up. Travelling with is band, Jason is an award winning singer/songwriter from the other Portland (Maine that is) who writes seriously easy music to like. To boot, Alberta St Pub has really become a supreme listening room, pig kitsch and all. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thursday, June 11th, 2009 6 - 8pm Lincoln Crockett & Mo Phillips Family Friendly Show Mississippi Pizza Portland, OR Friday, June 12th, 2009 8pm Lincoln Crockett & Chris Kokesh w/ Southbound - The Upstage Port Townsend, WA Price: $8 Saturday, June 13th, 2009 7 pm Lincoln Crockett & Chris Kokesh - Summer Fun Houseconcert 1460 SW Coronado Street Portland, OR USA (503) 452-4404 Price: $17 Sunday, June 14th, 2009 7pm Lincoln Crockett and Jason Spooner at Alberta Street Portland, OR Price: $5 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks for all the support, you're wickedly wonder-full people, all.

FIVE FOR FRIENDS--> Spreading the word is the #1 thing you can do to support an artist's music, so I'm inviting all of you who have my cd, ANGELS & DEVILS ALIKE, to share it with your friends by making 5 copies - that's right, I'm encouraging you to copy it five times! - and pass them on: to a friend, a co-worker, a music industry insider, your grandmother, a complete stranger. Your enthusiasm is infectious and helps introduce me to new listeners. Thanks to those who've already done so, this is your cheeky amnesty card. I still thrive on album sales, so if you don't have a copy yet - or your new friend wants to show their support - you can find cd's at www.cdbaby.com/lincolncrockett2 or on itunes! --------------------------------------Tour details------------------------------------------ Wednesday, May 6th, 2009 8 - 11 pm Lincoln Crockett & Chris Kokesh - Silver Moon Brewing 24 NW Greenwood Ave Bend, OR 97701 USA 541-388-8331 Price: $5 Thursday, May 7th, 2009 7 - 9 pm Lincoln Crockett & Chris Kokesh - Three Creeks Brewing Co 721 Desperado Court Sisters, OR 97759 USA 541.549.1963 Price: $5 Friday, May 8th, 2009 Concert to Benefit the Friends of Jefferson Co.

It never ceases to amaze me...

 
... how people come out of the woodwork and I find myself supported. Thanks everyone who came to the wonderful Albina Green tonight, friends old and new.

Lincoln Crockett's own Simple Life (sans Paris)...

 
Northwest Newsletter 06/08 "Lincoln Crockett is Spirit Folk with a serious Reality Check" - Chris Kokesh www.lincolncrockett.com Hi Everyone, This month I'm happy to be writing you from my new home in Washington, a cabin in the tiny hamlet of Trout Lake. My family and I have been itching for a switch to the simpler life - gardening & good times - for a while now and we finally made it happen. I'm already writing new songs and relishing in the space and community we have here. Come visit the websites for new pics soon! I'm delighted to be continuing this exciting journey as a very DIY musician, and to keep bringing you some of the best acoustic music in the Northwest. I couldn't do it without you! This month kicks off with three reappearances by Robb & Crockett beginning this Thursday at Edgefield's 97th Birthday Bash, Lincoln Crockett & Enemies this Friday AND on the 19th, my Edgefield Exorcism on the Second Saturday, the return of the Portland Parents Show (for music lovers and their families!) on the 18th, a second appearance at the wonderful Albina Green in Portland, and ends with the start of an Independence Day run into Idaho and Montana. More details on the Calendar Page! Thank you as always for your amazing support and for being a part of the music. C U out there soon! Peace and be well, Lincoln

Whoa! Folklife!

 
Prep for the weekend at Folklife began on Friday at the Port Townsend Brewing Company. I arrived without a PA and without a moment to spare and found myself playing for the most laid-back-and-yet-still-on-it crew of folks. A quick run to 'uptown' Port Townsend (literally the old town up onthe hill where historically all the ladies hung out while the men got debauched 'downtown' by the waterfront) to steal a speaker from another bar and I was in biz. I never know what to expect playing for people hanging outside for a drink, but this bunch drank and listened and tipped and signed the email list like we were old friends. I might sound like a broken record, but it never ceases to amaze me how people respond and who my audience are: every size, shape, color and age of man woman and child. Places like Port Townsend and I get along. Saturday's 1pm set at Folklife's Cafe Impromptu was, well, hard to read. I always love playing, but an early day crowd looks at you the same when they're really enjoying you as when they're bored. Still, enough folks were excited afterward to let me know I hit the mark for someone! I must say, the Folklife street-scene is just about out of control. The buskers all have drums, so I didn't stand a chance, and gave up after 2 3-song attempts and $5. Even the other stages can all hear one another! Still, there's magic afoot amongst the chaos, and some truly great music happened. My big surprise find was the Benefit Show featuring 'Urban Indians', music and performances by Native Americans that made me laugh, cry and gave me the chills. Perhaps aggrandizing to say, but I have walked this earth before and was not a white man, to say the least. By FAR, the highlight was the workshop I gave on Sunday, "Songwriting the Traditional Way". I was invited to lead something as part of a series of different workshops by young string-band musicians. I was the lone songwriter, but not lonely for sure. Generally, the only people interested in the art/craft/skill/lunacy of songwriting are songwriters, and all deeply want to listen and be heard. That made for some wonderful juju around the 30 person circle. It seemed illuminating for all and was definitly heartwarming for me. Special Bonus: All weekend I reconnected with long lost friends who were showing up out of nowhere. You know who you are and thank you for being you. Thanks to all for such wonderful experiences and see you out there again soon, Lincoln

aahhh, I love touring...

 
...meeting new people, seeing old friends, solidifying new friendships... just getting to share my excitement about music with new people makes it all worth while, to say nothing of actually making a living doing what I love. That said, last weekend's run of shows was worth writing home about. Chris Kokesh and I began on Thursday in Cottage Grove, OR at the Axe and Fiddle. Great venue, always the most laid back vibe. Sparse attendance, but everyone there locked-in, right down to the end of the bar and the end of the night. Chris and I are locking in to a musical love-affair ourselves, these duo shows are special and we look forward to doing more soon. Friday I headed out to the Dalles, OR to play at the Westwind Gallery, and ended up landing in the middle of the intersection of the tight-knit outdoors community and the tight-knit music and arts community in the Eastern Gorge. Thanks to Marty for hosting and Richard Hallman for his gorgeous photos I had to look away from, plus his shots of men quite literally throwing themselves to the wind. It was like finding a piece of the world I knew in and around Colorado right here in the Northwest. Can't wait to get back. Saturday I returned to remote Guemes Island and the ever-supportive Anderson's General Store. People, the island is laid back, the food is amazing, and they support great live music. I was lucky enough to return when the ferry was foot-traffic only! Picture me with all my instruments, merch and gear loaded into a wheelbarrow! It was hilarious! Like Thursday it was sparse attendance, but this time due to the islanders heading out into the first really warm weather of the year. Meanwhile, those who remained and I had a great evening together. Plus tips and cd sales made it more than worth my time. I am constantly amazed by the response people have to my music. Even if they're only passing through, they take notice. Sunday Jes Raymond and I played to my Olympia Crew in the strange and wonderful Plenty performance space. Oly is always hit or miss for music, even when Cross-eyed Rosie headed thru, but getting to share songs with my friends who know every word is like playing a stadium show as far as I'm concerned. More road news to come. See you out there soon!

Meet Lincoln Crockett & Enemies!

 
The 'Biddy Band' now has a name: Lincoln Crockett & Enemies. We're building a LOT of bridges between musical styles - blues, bluegrass, deep grooves & fusion - and having a really exceptional experience doing it. If its half as much fun for you as it is for us you'll have a great time! We're only in the Portland area right now but we think out of towners will agree that its worth the trip. EVERY FIRST FRIDAY with one exception: we'll be off on July 4th to celebrate but returning JULY 22nd. BiddyBand poster C U out there! -Lincoln

Fantastic Sampler & Exorcism!

 
Thanks, Everyone, for coming out and making Friday's Portland String Sampler and Saturday's Edgefield Exorcism so much fun. A review of the String Sampler in Monday's Oregonian said "Cross-eyed Rosie just about stole the night with their cover of David Bowie's "Fame." Can't help but think Bowie would approve." It's good to finally feel cool. Saturday's Exorcism was marked with friends and fans bringing lots of their friends and packing the winery hall so tight I had folks sitting packed in campfire-style. All we needed was the fire! It was a real treat to hear people singing the lyrics along with the words. Thanks for your support everyone! See you again soon.

A Successful tour!

 
Was it the high ceilings in my antique hotel room in Port Townsend, the peanuts on the floor of the Green Frog in Bellingham, the spontaneous 'Deadwood Mandolin' set-long jam with Deadwood Revival in Seattle or the homeless jazz-man who showed up at the Mandolin Cafe in Tacoma and stayed to find some grooves with me after my set? Or just that the whole endeavor was successful enough to make this seem like a bankable way of life for the future!? It was all of it and more - especially everyone who made it out to the shows. I was helped by some good press in Port Townsend and Bellingham, but every night people got excited, friends came out of the woodwork, and I came away with a lot of new fans. This is the most rewarding work I've ever done and I can't wait to get back out again! Step by step we're getting there. Look for more upcoming tour dates in Oregon and Washington every month from now on!

Robb & Crockett are undeniable!

 
Thanks to everyone who came out and supported last Friday's live recording at Mississippi Studios. We've got the files in hand and will beging chewing on them soon. For now we are thrilled at the show: the energy that night was off the charts! You came with high expectations and from everything I've heard, even old friends and fans were blown away. I've played music to a lot of excited audiences, but never actually heard repeated gasps - repeated gasps - in song after song when the good parts hit. Thanks for coming along with Robb & Crockett and contributing to our first recording. We couldn't have done it without you. -Lincoln

...and a wedding engagement!

 
Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who came to this weekend's McMen's gigs: Robb & Crockett were well-received at Grand Lodge, and a number of my fans commented "You're awesome, but the two of you playing together, that's amazing." Good times. My Edgefield Exorcism was packed again, PLUS - even more amazing - during 'I Begin Dreaming' a man in the front row knelt before his girlfriend and proposed!! The place went nuts! He said he was waiting for that perfect moment and that song was it. You can see a picture of Justin and Jackie and I on the photos page. Thank you for these opportunities to work magic & see you at a show soon! -Lincoln

This weekend's gigs in Seattle at Mr. Spot's House of Chai and on Guemes Island at Anderson's General Store were every touring musician's dream: full and enthusiastic audiences in places far from home-base. Thanks to the friends and fans who came out already knowing every word, and to everyone who came from myspace or the beautiful posters. We'll let you know when Lincoln's his way up again in March!

thank you cottage grove

 
... for making Lincoln and Jim McKeon welcome at the Axe & Fiddle last night. The duo filled in short-notice for a gig Cross-eyed Rosie could no longer play (hope you feel better, Alli!), giving them a chance to stretch out and have some fun, much to the delitght of the small crowd. Listeners there have definitely been touched by great music in the past, and to be well received was rewarding. It was an intimate show, the few people there probably could have squeezed into the bakery next door! Thanks to Brad, Bart, Fred & Stacy at the Axe and to Michael "The Godfather" Cipolina at 106.7 FM KSOW for having Lincoln on for a pre-show interview, live performance and album-listening session. We look forward to being back again, next time with more notice!

Robb & Crockett's friends rock

 
Thanks gang, for coming out and supporting us at the Dublin Pub tonight! You are the sexiest bunch of gals and guys - and in some cases the tallest too! what's up with that? - we've ever had the pleasure to aurally pleasure. ah, inuendo... Great to see some old friends and make some new friends as well. Hope to see you again for our wednesdays there in February!

Lincoln sits in with Banjo Killers

 
Tonight Lincoln sat in with banjo/slide player Tony Furtado & guitarist/mandolinist Scott Law for the second set of their January series at the Laurelthirst Pub in Portland. For those who don't know them, Tony and Scott are some of the largest names in instrumental acoustic music on the West Coast, and as it turns out both are talented songwriters and a couple of the nicest guys you'll meet. As a duo they call themselves the Banjo Killers and are playing the 'Thirst every wednesday in January. The trio started by ripping through an amped-up version of 'Ain't Nobody Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone' followed by the instrumental 'Cherokee Shuffle'. Once it was clear that the newcomer (that's Lincoln!) could hang Tony and Scott kept him up there for the remainder of the evening! Folks were pressed up against the stage dancing, and well, it was nothing short of magical! Thanks to The Banjo Killers for sharing the music!

Lincoln's very own band begins performing monthly on February 1st!

 
It's official. After a constant stream of requests from friends and fans Lincoln is pulling together his very first band and beginning a monthly performance slot. Beginning FEBRUARY 1, 2008 you can find them the FIRST FRIDAY of every month at BIDDY McGRAW'S in Portland. The band rehearsing right now includes Jim McKeon on guitar, Andy Love on Drums and Tyler Smith on bass. Jim has blown Lincoln's mind at the New Year's Eve set they did together at imbibe and the Haiti Benefit last Friday. Andy Love was the surprise guest at Cross-eyed Rosie's annual Christmas Party in December, sitting in on the skins and adding a whole new pocket to Rosie's brand of folky grooves. Tyler Smith and Andy Love have been a rhythm section together for years. Lincoln first caught them together in guitarist Jon Ostrom's short-lived but incredibly powerful band Badger, where they layed it down with such force that Lincoln has been joking he's going to pee himself in shock. Biddy Mcgraw's is located at 6000 NE Glisan in Portland, Oregon. Lincoln is proud to be joining the roster of fantastic local and regional acts who have found a home at Biddy's. www.biddymcgraws.com Hope to see you there!

Great shows Friday & Saturday - Haiti was helped and Edgefield exorcised.

 
Thanks to everyone who made Friday's and Saturday's shows such a success. On Firday we raised almost $1000 for Healing Hands for Haiti, a fantastic figure for a venue as cozy as Mississippi Pizza. I am particularly grateful to the musicians who made Friday such a treat for me as a performer: Josh Cole, Andy Lohr and "Dr. Kate" Saylor for joining me for bluegrass-by-the-seat-of-our-pants, and the incomperable Jim McKeon for helping me take the closing set to new heights. It never ceases to amaze me how lucky I am to have such strong supporters in the audience every night. I am forever grateful to share these experiences with you. See you out there again soon! -Lincoln

outdoorsmen + one woman break OUT

 
thanks to everyone who came and made last night's show at 9-muses so special! that's the friends, the dancers, the amazing musicians and 9-musus Acoustic tavern itself. That place is becoming a great place to catch really vibrant performances. there was some great energy there last night! Last night was the official innaugural gig for the Outdoorsmen, a loose cadre of uniquely Pacific Northwestern songwriters and musicians. Characterized by honesty, generocity, camraderie and a love for our home in the PacificNorthwet, this may even be a whole genre of music. at the 9 - muses the Outdoorsmen were: Alexa Wiley (the outdoorswoman!), Hunter Paye, Brad Creel, Dave Clarke, Lincoln Crockett & all the guys in Jim the Bad goat! Future shows should be more of the same: great singing, great playing, dancing, and most of the musicians sitting in on one another's sets. Plus how can you beat the sing-along at the end!! keep your eyes peeled for more... Happy Holidays -Lincoln

record breaking Lincoln Crockett / Cross-eyed Rosie Show at the Laurelthirst

 
Thanks to everyone who came and made the special double-bill such a success! The Laurelthirst said it was the biggest night they'd had in four years, and almost triple the attendance the last time Rosie played there in 2005. Not that you'd need them to tell you: folks were to the stage for Lincoln's opening set, and it stayed that way late into the night. The crowd got really worked up and dancing during the second set, and by the encore the entire audience literally linked arms and swayed as a single unit to Lincoln, Alli and Ellie singing 'The John Day Waltz', from Rosie's latest album, ADJUSTED. Special thanks to Brent, a long-time Rosie supporter and friend, who volunteered to change Lincoln's guitar string when it snapped during a particularly ferocious groove on the as-yet-unrecorded original 'Glory Hallelujah'. Cross-eyed Rosie's next show is December 15th at the Goodfoot in Portland. Check the gig calendar to see when Lincoln is out next! See you soon.

Robb & Crockett opening for Greensky Bluegrass

 
Robb & Crockett's opening set for Greensky Bluegrass a the Goodfoot was a shockingly fun set. Used to almost no practice, Jimmy and Lincoln had a contageously good time and had people bopping, laughing and cheering the whole set. No one was more surprised than R&C! This was also a bit of a homecoming - Jimmy just returned to Portland that day after 2 years in tiny (and heavenly) Trout Lake, WA. Look for a lot more from Robb & Crockett in the near future...

Portland Monthly publishes short but sweet review

 
Portland Monthly November 2007 On The Town (column) “We Liked It” Local CD Reviews pp 226 "It takes a fair amount of charm, chops and chutzpa to hold our attention with a minimal musical palette, but mandolin wrangler Lincoln Crockett, from local bluegrass outfit Cross-eyed Rosie, manages to do so on his album Angels & Devils Alike (www.lincolncrockett.com). Armed with just a mandolin, an acoustic guitar and a supple voice, Crockett conducts us on a folksy tour of his mood swings, from glum (“Nothing Makes Me Feel Good”) to glad (“Feels So Good”), and for the most part it’s a bump-free and tuneful trip." - John Chandler Thanks, John!

27 Chords and the Truth last Friday

 
Friday's show at Mississippi Pizza had a great turnout and together we really generated some energy. I enjoyed seeing some new friends and fans made. That at least judging from their wide eyes and how they kept bopping in their seats. That's always fun. Secretly, I keep the beat by watching all of your feet tap. This was the first time I'd seen opener Adam Hill's complete set, even after having him sit in with me at the cd release last month. It was like watching someone get inside my head, adding modern twists to traditional music, all with a laid-back feel. Keep up with Adam at www.myspace.com/mradamhill. Thanks to all of you who came and showed your support for Adam and I. See you next time! -Lincoln

GREAT PRESS IN THE OREGONIAN

 
"New-grass bluegrass" Friday, September 21, 2007 DON CAMPBELL Special to The Oregonian There's nothing wrong with old-school, but the real fun comes with those who push envelopes. As with blues, jazz, even country and rock 'n' roll, those who bring something new to the party help propel genres to higher levels. Such is the case with Lincoln Crockett, a young lion on the Portland bluegrass scene. A regular in Cross-Eyed Rosie, the Josh Cole Band and Caravan Gogh, Crockett has released a new solo project that radiates all that's good about the progressive side of bluegrass. A sterling mandolin picker, guitarist and compelling singer, he has produced a 12-song piece of work that might have traditionalists scratching their heads, but new-grassers will gravitate to it like moths to a porch light. It will be hard to avoid comparisons to Nickel Creek's Chris Thile, but that might be more happenstance than anything stylistically plagiaristic. Crockett owns the requisite high-and-lonesome voice -- plaintive, achingly bittersweet and clear as creekwater, without a hint of vibrato -- and he's not afraid to use it. Like Thile, he's fearless and playful, but can clearly stand on his own. He is also a fiery player who slashes his custom twin-point mandolin when called for, but who displays a feather-light touch on the tender tunes. Crockett has a predilection for more complex chording, and he lets that predilection shine throughout this largely original effort. Though his playing can be a shade on the outside (in a good way), he doesn't stray far enough from his bluegrass roots to do damage to the form. This is bluegrass, but squeezed through the soul of a youngster. You'll hear all his influences -- folk, rock, pop, funk -- but he's found a way to gather them up under the bluegrass mantle and produce something as pleasant as a long summer day.

Fantastic cd release show!

 
Hi everyone! Thank you for your support! Friday's CD release show for ANGELS & DEVILS ALIKE sold out 3 hours before the doors even opened! The show started off hot with an opening set by Nathaniel Talbot that had the audience calling for an encore. I had a great time with my set, starting off with help from Adam Hill on guitar, bringing in some of the backing tracks from the album, and bringing Adam back out on bass to finish out the show. I also had a chance to show off new material and as a special treat I used my Angels & Devils Alike Message Deck to divine an answer to the question "is the universe expanding". The answer? "The universe will do whatever you want it to, so go for it." The Willamette Week featured the show as one of its rare 'picks' for music that night and the Oregonian gave the album great press --> but then listed the show for the wrong date! I guess we didn't need the help with that, but the review is still stellar, thanks Don Campbell. The entire show was recorded live and all or part of it may be released in the future. Many thanks to all the great folks at Mississippi Studios for helping make it a great night. We'll let you know as soon as the cd is up on cdbaby and iTunes. Thanks to everyone who came for making it a successful evening! -Lincoln

I hope to see you at the ANGELS & DEVILS ALIKE release show on September 21st at the unparalleled Mississippi Studios in Portland, Oregon! Yours, Lincoln

NORTHWEST NEWSLETTER - Lincoln Crockett's new CD arrives Sept 21!

 
Northwest Newsletter 9/07 Hi everyone! Lincoln is preparing for the release of his debut full-length cd ANGELS & DEVILS ALIKE on September 21st, 2007 by taking a break from his Imbibe happy hours and rehearsing with multi-instrumentalist Adam Hill. You can listen to a track from the album plus a live cut right now at www.myspace.com/lincolncrockett. Return often and we'll be adding more songs as the release approaches. -------------------from the press-release---------------------- MISSISSIPPI STUDIOS, PORTLAND, OR -- On September 21 mandolinist/guitarist/musical alchemist Lincoln Crockett will step forward from his many group projects, releasing "Angels & Devils Alike," his first full-length album. Lincoln has spent years playing the Northwest and the West Coast as a supporting cast member for Cross-eyed Rosie, The Josh Cole Band and Caravan Gogh. "Angels & Devils Alike" reveals the depth, power and stunning musicality of Lincoln's own work. Lincoln grew up on rock 'n roll, ventured down the acoustic music path, became a voracious listener and turned up as a bluegrasser with a taste for jazz and a spiritual flavor specific to no genre. "Angels & Devils Alike" is sparse and spare in its arrangements, allowing for Lincoln's inspiring lyrics, delicate vocal harmonies and guitar/mandolin interplay to shine. The flavor of the music is not bluegrass or newgrass, nor is it pop or folk. Lincoln artfully blends texture and genre into soothing, healing acoustic music. The September 21 show will feature "Angels & Devils Alike" in its purest state, with Lincoln playing with multi-instrumentalist Adam Hill and an engineer blending in actual tracks and environmental sound from the album. Local songwriter Nathaniel Talbot, who blends schooled Travis picking and an indie-pop sense of melody will open the show at 10 p.m. Mississippi Studios is located at 3939 N Mississippi Ave. For venue information call (503)288-3895 or visit www.mississippistudios.com. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- The cd will be first available to the public at the show, afterwhich you'll be able to find it on cdbaby and iTunes. While preparing for the show Lincoln will continue gigging with Cross-eyed Rosie and is excited for several new Robb&Crockett gigs.

"Angels & Devils Alike" is sparse and spare in its arrangements, allowing for Lincoln's inspiring lyrics, delicate vocal harmonies and guitar/mandolin interplay to shine. The flavor of the music is not bluegrass or newgrass, nor is it pop or folk. Lincoln artfully blends texture and genre into soothing, healing acoustic music. The September 21 show will feature "Angels & Devils Alike" in its purest state, with Lincoln playing with multi-instrumentalist Adam Hill and an engineer blending in actual tracks and environmental sound from the album. Local songwriter Nathaniel Talbot, who blends schooled Travis picking and an indie-pop sense of melody will open the show at 10 p.m. Mississippi Studios is located at 3939 N Mississippi Ave. in Portland, Oregon. For venue information call (503)288-3895 or visit www.mississippistudios.com. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- The cd will be first available to the public at the show, afterwhich you'll be able to find it on cdbaby and iTunes. Thanks as always for your support and for being a part of the music. Looking forward to seeing you at a show soon!

Great fun opening for Page McConnell

 
The opening set for Page McConnell this evening was a blast. AND hilarious. with all the keyboard gear that crew was hauling I squeezed myself and my little ol' mandolin up at the front edge of the stage and rocked it from there. The audience was super responsive and I got a lot of stoked feedback the rest of the evening. Page checked out some of the set and had good things to say. Sounds like he and his touring band are nearing the end of their trip and they really sounded great. The place was packed!! Many thanks to the Aladdin staff who are really running a first rate operation over there. Music buisness doesn't have to be beautiful but these guys actually enjoy their work. Special thanks to Evan, Tommy, Paul and Freddie-the-new-guy for taking good care of me. Top thanks to Mark Adler for calling me in for the gig! And thanks to all of you who came out to show your support, or wrote or called with kudos before the show. You were there in spirit. See you again next time! -Lincoln

Album enters final mix!

 
Today Lincoln and engineer Tom Frisch sat down with Portland music cornerstones Jim Brunberg and Ezra Holbrook to finish the final mix for Lincoln's new album, tentatively titled "Angels & Devils Alike". Both Jim & Ezra were thrilled with what they heard and each offered a couple of comments to take the album from fantastic to, well, what's better than fantastic? Jim was so excited he invited Lincoln to add vocals to his next album and even asked to be in Lincoln's band! Many thanks to E & J for their time and support. Massive thanks also to the select friends and fans who have previewed the disk and come back smiling. We'll let you know as soon as the release show is booked!!

Lincoln joins Caravan Gogh!

 
Lincoln has accepted an invitation to join Portland band, Caravan Gogh, taking over for their mandolin player in mid July. CVG is releasing their first album, "Caravan Gogh", this month at the prestigious Mississippi Studios. Says Jeff Rosenberg of The Willamette Weekly "Their cello-mando-uke-bass lineup defies convention, as do the four freewheeling musical minds wielding those instruments." Keep an eye on the calendar to check out Lincoln and this wild new adventure live!

SNAP your fingers for fun

 
The Salmon Nation Artist's Project (SNAP) went off great last night at Alberta St Pub here in Portland. Many Thanks to Alexa Wiley for her hard work getting the show together and spearheading the project. Her set was hot as usual, and she had me up to play. Any time, Alexa! Thanks to everyone who showed up to support the evening. It was good to see some of N/NE Portland crew out, and great to find new supporters as well. A special shout-out goes to Hunter Paye, who's set earlier in the evening wow-ed me with his gentle songwriting and inviting presence. Check him out! Looking forward to seeing you out there soon, Lincoln

Recording is underway!

 
Lincoln is laying down tracks with his old friend, Tom Frisch, at the latter's home studio. The first finished was a fantastic version of 'Sawdust Settler', slated to appear on a compilation disk to benefit the Salmon Nation Project, due later this year.

November is an open door...

 
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! May you have much to be thankful for. November was a very fun and busy month: We saw Lincoln's final solo gig at the Trout Lake Country Inn. "Trout Lake's Living Room" is closing it's doors after their sure-to-be-crazy New Year's Eve bash, so this was Lincoln's last solo turn on the stage. The Inn has been Lincoln's second home for the past year and a half, and he's sad to see the place go. Trout Lake has proved itself to be very supportive of good live music, always giving Lincoln a warm welcome and coming out strong for Cross-eyed Rosie shows. May the fun continue some other way! Lincoln's Edgefield Exorcism played to an enthusiastic audience in the winery. The few fans who cozied into the loung chairs in the very front were treated to some close-contact pyrotechnics. New fans were made further back as well and a lot of wine disappeared. Was that why people were bobbing their heads so much? Light In The Dark, with Joni Laurence and Juliet Wyers, was a special evening on the 15th. A lot of new and old friends came out. A handful even made it all the way to closing time! First Juliet, then Joni, and finally Lincoln each took the stage to themselves for a 30 minute set. Each makes such beautiful and unique music. All three of them played together in the round for the rest of the evening, trading songs, stories, wisecracks, and offering spontaneous accompaniment. Oh, the joy of lonely solo performers making music together, and the rare magic of equals supporting one another! Thanks to everybody for coming. Lincoln is booked to continue his imbibe happy hours through December, and is engaged in a dog-pile of behind the scenes activity. Look for exciting new things in 2007!

Edgefield Exorcised...

 
Lincoln's second Edgefield Exorcism went off with a bang with a great crowd crammed into the long hall in the winery. As with all of Lincoln's past shows at the Edgefield, the music ran well past 9 for all the folks who hung on long. MVPs of the night were busy MOD Sam and indefatigable bartender/wine-taster Janelle, who poured generously late into the evening. You have to see a show in Edgefield's winery to believe it. The long, glass-lined hall is surrounded by kegs of beer and wine, lined with small candle-lit tables and chairs, and capped off with a cozy couch and loungers. People who stayed to the end commented it was just like being invited into Lincoln's living room. Many thanks to all who came out and made this casual show a success! Look forward to a new Edgefield Exorcism every second Satruday of the Month in '06.

Happy Hour's continue!

 
Lincoln and imbibe are continuing their Wednesday happy hours in August! Tentatively titled "Lincoln Crockett's Humpday HappyHours", the goal is to continue to bring good people together to hear Lincoln's music. Cuz let's face it, good people like what he does. He works hard to bring out the best in himself and people are responding: "Your songs are moving"... "You've got some truly beautiful progressions..." "Your songwriting and mandolin playing are amazing"... ...are just some of the things people said there in July. Stay tuned for how these happy hours may get even more interesting!...

Tons of fun at the Red Shed

 
Hey everyone, The Red Shed was a blast last night, thanks to everyone who came, stayed and enjoyed themselves and the music. What a beautiful place to have been playing these past couple of months! If you've never seen it, McMenamin's Edgefield's Little Red Shed has a great outdoor concert series. The LRS is exactly that, a rustic shed, buried in vines, serving beer and wine, surrounded by picnic tables and lawn. Again the audience was warm and I got to meet people who're tracking down my shows cuz they love the music. Hope you'll all do the same! The circle is widening and I couldn't be happier. As a reminder, at this time you can download and share the tracks you find here on the MUSIC page. Please spread them freely and send people my way. The more the merrier! Hope you're enjoying your summers. -Lincoln

Lincoln and Cross-eyed Rosie in the Studio!

 
Lincoln and Cross-eyed Rosie spent the weekend in the studio with engineer Dale Adkins working on their next cd. Tentatively titled "Moonbeams and Kerosene", the new disk will be officially unveiled in November (tho the band may have them available before that on a pre-release basis). Lincoln is helping co-roduce the disk with other members, as well as working with the band on the instrumental and vocal tracks, getting down his role as co-lead singer, songwriter and mandolin player. Look for a cd release show in Portland and one of the clubs that has helped Rosie become one of the best, if not the ONLY truly progressive-bluegrass group in the Northwest. This album will be the diffinitive statement of Cross-eyed Rosie. Most tracks were recorded live with only vocal overdubs. Since the departure of co-lead singer the band re-worked and re-tooled tunes, as well as added hot new material. Tracks on the album will include most of the newer material the band has been performing live over the past year and a half.

New Happy Hour at imbibe

 
Lincoln is starting an exclusive new happy hour slot at Portland's chill-spot, imbibe. Their moto is "take it in". Lincoln's is "Mandolin, Guitar and Beautiful Songs To Kick Your A## by". It's a nice combo. Wednesdays, 5'ish to 7'ish. Free + tipping encouraged. 2229 SE Hawethorne Blvd, PDX, OR. imbibe's happy hour prices run 4 - 7 and latenite during the week. Lincoln's engagement currently runs June & July, with the possibility of more if it's successful. Come show your support! The Last wednesdays of each month will be at McMenamin's Edgefield's notorious Little Red Shed. See the Calendar page for more info.

Heading to NorthWest FolkLife!

 
I'm heading to Seattle's Northwest FolkLife Festival this weekend. I'll be giving a songwriting workshop on Saturday at noon and a solo set at 4. "Folklife" is one of the northwest's biggest festivals, and as I understand it it's supported entirely by donations and the City of Seattle. Like a huge thank-you party they throw for the people (or the people throw for themselves, depending on how you look at it) every year. And it ain't just honkies on guitars either. This year's theme involves music from the Muslim world, and previous years I've seen Hip-Hop dance troups, funk horn sections, Russian and Japanese dancing, the whole gamut. This really is the people's music festival as a port town like Seattle sees it. My songwriting workshop is on "Digging Deep". We'll look into how to write and strengthen songs for songwriters of any level, any style. I'll share ideas and examples, sing a song or two and do plenty of Q&A. I always have fun with these kind of things. What's my favorite thing in the world but music!! The 4 o'clock solo set will be fun too, my first at Folklife. I'll hit some favorites and a new tune or two. Will it be danceable? Introspective? I won't know 'til I can feel ya'll sittin' there. Where ever you're at, I'll be there. Cross-eyed Rosie and I also have a big weekend at FolkLife as well. We'll be giving TWO vocal workshops and a stage performance. Look for us in between to be busking a lot. Visit the links page here at or come to Folklife yourself and find us! Hope to see you there! -Lincoln

Cross-eyed Rosie Rocked the Alladin with HBR

 
I get to play in the best band in the world. Cross-eyed Rosie again showed that we can rise to the occasion last night at The Alladin Theater here in Portland. After a string of smaller, more intimate gigs we played the 200+ seater and got a standing O. To have that much fun with that many people is always special. We had a lot of help from the fantastic audience: they were ready to dance and be pleased. Headliners Hot Buttered Rum drew a friendly, fun-loving, love-loving community of music lovers. The Lincoln and Rosie fans I talked to were thrilled to discover HBR's high altitude bluegrass sound. Many thanks to Butter for having us up! If I'm not working on my solo set's then I guarantee I'm working with Cross-eyed Rosie. My bandmates are the hot car, and as the in-house songwriter I get to design the test track (it ain't an oval). Playing with them opened me up to a world of mandolin and harmony. Thank 'em or blame 'em, I love 'em. You will too. Visit Cross-eyed Rosie and I at www.crosseyedrosie.com It's on the Links page! -Lincoln ps... the name? It's a drink.

Sure Do Luv Good People!

 
I have the best fans in the world. I'm fortunate to have friends who are touched by my songs, and fans who become friends. They say the best you can hope to do is preach to the choir. I'm constantly amazed at how big the choir is. Thanks to everyone who wrote in and posted your kudos after this website was opened up. Each of you shaped my journey to bring me to who I am and where I'm at today. Best wishes on each of your journeys as well. I listen out there and I hear some good-hearted, gentle people who are kickin' some A##. I shore do luv good people! Take my songs along as encouragement (you'll really love 'Be Real' on a rough day) and keep in touch! -Lincoln

Welcome to lincolncrockett.com!!

 
It's still smells like paint in here, but we're finally done! It's time to unveil lincolncrockett.com The site came together effortlessly with patience and help. Most prominently, John Fenger gifted Lincoln with a set of excellent photographs from a show late in 2005 at Portland's Mississippi Pizza Pub. These photos perfectly captured a great performance from a variety of angles. This site would pale without these poetic black & whites. Thanks John!! The photo's meshed beautifully with a template from Derek Sever's HostBaby service. Derek is the father of CDBaby, the best independent music distribution site on the internet. He started HostBaby as a pet project a couple of years ago, and now offers a full-service website building and hosting vehicle for musicians. This site would be barren Without HostBaby and Derek's go-get-em positivity behind it. Lastly, the site has been fleshed out by Lincoln's understanding and the helpful comments of family and friends. Apparently it takes a village to do anything! We look forward to keeping this site THE up-to-date place to find out more about Lincoln Crockett, his music and his happenings. Stay well and keep in touch.
