Drop-In Session with John Craigie

John Craigie is a singer, songwriter, and storyteller with a unique style that still maintains strong influence from legendary folk artist. His songs are insightful: sometimes poignant, sometimes hilarious, and often both. His stories and jokes draw big laughs and ear-to-ear grins from the audience. Having continuously toured for much of the past decade his live performance and ability to play a room seem second nature.


Gabriel Clark and John Craigie

Craigie joined me in the studio Tuesday afternoon to discuss his Artist Residency at McMenamin’s Al’s Den. He is playing 7 nights in a row and keeping it fresh with a new guest and theme each night. Pulling tracks from his nine studio albums, he won’t be repeating a song all week. Listen as Craigie tells me about his Residency, Portland’s cultural “moment”, playing Burning Man, and being “essentially a can of beans”. Craigie plays two more nights at Al’s Den, you don’t want to miss it.

    I am so proud to be your grandfather Gabe. Your Portland Radio Project is very professional. You have the perfect voice and vernacular for the large audience that you cover. You have my vote as “Disc Jockey of the Year” !!!! You should play your guitar and sing one of your original tunes on the air. I Love you grandson.
