The Frank Hamilton School is excited to bring you the first of what promises to be an annual Holiday Gala featuring the extremely talented Joe Craven! We are taking over the sanctuary at Oakhurst Baptist Church for the first time and will bring you an incredible blend of styles and musicians. As an attendee, expect to immerse yourself in the performance, and knowing Joe, you’ll be a part of it before you know it!
The lineup is as follows, and is subject to change:
Charles Williams (The Bonaventure Quartet)
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.
“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.
