For the past decade, Craigie reports he has "lived the life romantic" as a touring folk singer, taking his unique musical style across the United States and the world. A singer, songwriter and storyteller, he describes himself as one who stays true to the essence of folk music, and the traditions of the seminal writers of the past century. With timeless melodies and insightful lyrics, interspersed with witty storytelling, his songs take many poetic turns before bringing his listeners back home, he says. His themes include social commentary, personal empowerment, political satire and modern love. Craigie reports that his live performances in private  homes, cafes, festivals and sold-out venues inspire and delight his audiences who welcome him like a long-lost son and return to see him whenever he visits. He has traveled around the world, having played in all 50 states and beyond, bringing his music to nearly every corner of the planet. His fans span generations, political ideologies and geographic locations, but he says they are all charmed by the dynamic yet humble troubadour peering out from under his signature cap.

A festival trailer is available at http:// THEY THOUGHT THEY HEARD They thought they heard a dragon in the hills Whose roar was louder than a thunder clap And all the villagers, with fearful chills, Were sure they were but bait for its foul trap. Not knowing what they heard, they organized As though they knew that demon would attack, But some who heard the roar had realized The truth and tried to bring their senses back. But so convinced were those who spurred the crowd, They mined the hill with strongest tnt And blew it all into a mushroom cloud, Entombing all the town in deep debris. And those who panicked never knew what they had heard, For all the people, of the town had been interred.
