Many thanks to friends old and new who supported this month's European tour with my friend and labelmate Allysen Callery. It was a joy to perform once more in Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland. See you again in 2015.

Stateside, there are some upcoming shows around New England:

Saturday November 8 - Tavern at the End of the World, Charlestown, MA (full band)
Friday November 14- Coffee Depot, Warren RI
Saturday November 15 - Neverending Books, New Haven CT

The tour was in support of my brand new LP for Jellyfant Records - Busker on the Broad Highway. The label has also released a split 7" record with Allysen Callery, in which we cover Sybille Baier and Nico. Now available from Jellyfant's Bandcamp.

Busker is also available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.

The album was featured along with an interview on this week's edition of the great Sydney radio show "Sideways Through Sound." Have a listen here.

The first official review comes from the German music site Gästeliste, which says that "Crosby plays the ten songs of the album with such a fervor he makes you believe that the road to paradise goes straight via the devil’s music."

A full schedule of concert dates is set for next month's European tour with Allysen Callery. Details on the shows page. See you soon Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands!

I just returned from a long weekend of shows in the South. It was a privilege to sit in with Ted Drozdowski's Scissormen at the Juke Joint Festival in Clarksdale, MS and to play back to back solo shows in Nashville at the Old Time Pickin' Parlor + on the Mando Blues Hour. Special thanks to Ted, Richie, Whit & Rob for all the generous help and support.

Now, I'm glad to be back in Boston, where the kind folks at have just premiered the brand new video for my song "Going to Bentonia," which was directed, shot and edited by Reuben Bettsak.
