Humorous Storytelling, Serious Folk
If John Prine and Mitch Hedberg had a baby, the resulting product would resemble something very close to singer-songwriter John Craigie. Musically comparable to Prine, with the humor and wit of Hedberg, the humble, gracious, and hilarious John Craigie is one of the best storytellers of our time. It’s no wonder that Chuck Norris sends him fan mail, and Todd Snider brings him gifts on stage. The vagabond troubadour has charmed audiences in all 50 states and throughout much of Europe, with a DIY spirit seldom seen these days. John's true home is on the road, and just like that he’s on to the next town, playing and singing and telling stories to everyone who wants to listen. He comes to Michigan with a new album, "Scarecrow."
