John Craigie appearing at this event

Born and bred in California, Craigie has charmed audiences in all 50 United States and throughout much of Europe, with a DIY spirit seldom seen these days. While touring solo and with the likes of Todd Snider, the Shook Twins, Nicki Bluhm, and ALO, he has taken the stage at festivals, sold out venues, intimate house concerts, center camp at Burning Man and even Gregory Alan Isakov’s farm. He’ll make you laugh and make you cry, all in the same song. With a fan-base that is more of a continually-expanding circle of friends, his true passion is connecting with people through shared experiences, stories, and song. John Craigie finds his niche in delicate storytelling, via his voice and guitar. His new release ‘No Rain, No Rose’ is a beautiful collection of carefully selected stories, featuring many collaborations with close friends, including The Shook Twins and Gregory Alan Isakov. Regarding the title of the album, Craigie explained, “I took it from an old Buddhist saying ‘No Mud, No Lotus’, which basically means, you need the bad things to make the good things. I changed it to reflect my rainy city of roses…” paying respects to his current home in Portland, Oregon.
