January 16. Hey, folk fans, did you happen to catch Joe Crookston when he opened for Suzanne Vega at the Towne Crier this past November? If not, you have another chance to check out the acclaimed Ithaca folksinger's quiet, image-rich songs when he revisits the Crier with his band to headline this month. Crookston's newest album, Georgia I'm Here, has been highly praised by No Depression. "Crookston makes music that's rarely heard on radio anymore," says the folk-roots bible. "This is wonderful, engaging, and gorgeous music, borne from an artist who fully deserves a boatload of acclamation." The Kennedys open. (Red Molly returns January 3; Junior Brown jams January 24.) 8:30pm. $20, $25. Beacon. (845) 855-1300;Townecrier.com.
