Over the course of fourteen albums and a decade of touring the world, John Craigie has merged wit and observation in his mix of music and storytelling, which continues in his latest CD Working on My Farewell. He has several upcoming local appearances, including at the Axe and Fiddle in Cottage Grove tonight, July 8th, at the Oregon Country Fair, and in Florence at the Kenneth B. Gallery on July 15th. He’ll also be up at Horning’s Hideout for the Northwest String Summit on July 17th. He visited the KLCC studios for songs and conversation.
