The Hamilton Hoopla Around the Corner!

8 Dec

“Everything Joe touches turns to music,” says mandolinist David Grisman, with whom Joe played for almost 17 years as a member of the David Grisman Quintet.

We are only one week out from The Hamilton Hoopla (Wed Dec 14, Oakhurst Baptist Church, 222 East Lake Dr., Decatur, GA 30030), an absolutely incredible evening of music in a perfect acoustic environment and featuring a potpourri of musicians representing styles such as jazz, jamgrass, old-time, gypsy jazz, and Joe Craven!  Hosted by and featuring the great Joe Craven (David Grisman Quintet, Garcia Grisman recordings, Alison Brown Quartet), we are excited to celebrate the Grand Opening of the Frank Hamilton School and its commitment to bring music and music education into the Decatur and Atlanta communities as we enter our second year!  It is an exciting time for us for certain and invite YOU to be a part!

Please get your advance tickets to help the cause and we absolutely can’t wait to see you on Wednesday, December 14 at Oakhurst Baptist Church!  Share this with your family and friends!

 ABOUT JOE CRAVEN
Joe Craven is not just an entertaining musician with a penchant for the mischievous, he is a teacher and student all at once and he will draw you into his performance by including you as thou gh you’re part of the show itself. His gift of gab is unprecedented and his musical knowledge impressive. Joe’s openness and expression of gratitude for the gifts he’s acquired make it all the more fun for him to share them with his audience.
Creativity educator, former museum curator, visual artist, actor/storyteller, event emcee and recipient of the 2009 Folk Alliance Far-West Performer of the Year, Joe has made music with many folks – notably violinist Stephane Grappelli and Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia – to multi-whirled string guy David Lindley, harmonica wizard Howard Levy and seven years recording and touring with banjo fusionist Alison Brown.
Joe is a musical madman with anything that has strings attached; violin, mandolin, tin can, bedpan, cookie tin, tenor guitar/banjo, mouth bow, canjoe, cuatro, CBG, berimbau, balalaika, boot ‘n lace and double-necked whatever.
