LINCOLN CROCKETT: News

Art In The Pearl Monday :) - September 1, 2017

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.

11/21 Houseconcert in Trout Lake with Nathaniel Talbot!! - November 13, 2015

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!!! - April 10, 2015

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!

MO PHILLIPS AND THE SPAGHETTI PANTS DANCE BAND Rock Against Cystic Fibrosis - 1pm

Portland, OR 97201
US
(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!!! - March 19, 2015

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!

Fourteen Dangerous Strings 2/28! >:-) - February 19, 2015

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! - November 18, 2014

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! - September 29, 2014

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 - May 23, 2014

"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! - April 24, 2014

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!

Mississippi Pizza Pub

3552 N Mississippi St

Price: $10-15 sug. donation

 

 

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 - April 16, 2014

 

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!!! - February 27, 2014

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?

 

 

Portland Center for Spiritual Living

 

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 - February 15, 2014

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 - February 5, 2014

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

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! - October 17, 2013

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
