When Kipyn Martin performed for Fiddle & Bow
on July 1st she did several covers of Joni Mitchell
songs which absolutely blew us away. When she
and Allison Shapira met at the Northeast Regional
Folk Alliance conference in 2013 Allison was
what she refers to as a “recovering opera singer”
become songwriter. The two ladies soon realized
how much their own songwriting had been
influenced by their two musical heroes and the
60’s Folk Revival and the tribute show was born.

This should be a really special show featuring
two fine singer/songwriters paying
tribute to two legends of the Folk Revival.

The word must have been out on Joe Crookston when he performed for us in 2015 at one of the first Muddy Creek Music Hall shows.  We had a packed house and his show was one of the best of the year.  Joe is an Ithaca, NY based songwriter who was named 2016 Folk Alliance International Artist In Residence.  He is a story-teller in song and backs his songs with fine guitar and fiddle.  Multi-award winning Canadian songwriter David Francey said of Joe, "At every festival I hope to find the gift of one artist whose songwriting and performance stand out.  Joe was that gift for me this year at the Philadelphia Folk Festival.  Stunning performance, great songs, and not a word wasted.  I LOVE that!"
