Ernest Troost with Patti Maxine and Josh Lowe

Fiddling Cricket & Canyon Acoustic Society Concert Society 2019 Presents

Ernest Troost
Singer-song writer and guitarist from LA
Patti Maxine and Josh Lowe open

Friday, October 18th 7:30pm Tickets $18 adv / $20 door

Ernest Troost is an Emmy winning film and TV composer, as well as a singer-songwriter/guitarist who is a recipient of the prestigious Kerrville New Folk award. His songwriting style combines folk and Piedmont-blues-style guitar picking with evocative stories and colorful character portrayals-as though the Carter family, Robbie Robertson, and Alfred Hitchcock wrote songs together.

"Ernest has phenomenal guitar chops. His voice is uniquely his own, and free of affectation. His lyrics, though deep, are in a straightforward, everyday vernacular. Humble on stage and off, Ernest is the whole package."-Steve Dulson, Past-President, FAR-West

"Troost's style and subject matter recall Dylan, Dave Alvin, and Richard Thompson--enviable company indeed."-Tom Hyslop, Blues Revue Magazine

Locals, Patti Maxine (known as the Queen of Steel), and singer songwriter, Josh Lowe (of Josh Lowe and the Juncos) will open with a short set previewing their upcoming CD release.
