Janie and Joe "Soulful original folk-rock-blues...... ......with a celtic twist" Janie and Joe perform as a duo-Janie sings and plays keyboards, various percussion instruments and the Bodhran, an Irish goatskin drum while Joe amazes audiences with his skills on numerous acoustic and electric guitars. They are gifted songwriters able to go from a sparse achingly tender love song to an uptempo sultry blues number and then turn the corner into an Irish-flavored instrumental and top that off with a rockin' balls-to-the-wall socially-concious tune that leaves the crowd begging for more. In a world of pre-packaged "musak" this music is refreshing, unpolished and real! They perform at major Art and Music Festivals, Brew Pubs and Coffee Houses all over the North West, in Ireland, and beyond. "Janie Cribbs is a fantastic singer-songwriter who performs with her partner Joe Reggiatore, an excellent guitarist. Not only do the two of them fill the room nicely with haunting music, but they have a mesmerizing stage presence" Chuck Dingee, The Music Man, Northwest Events and Lifestyles "Another work of fine art from this very gifted artist...having been blown away by her last two albums, I was delighted that she had made it three in a row with "AFTERALL'....beautiful lyrics, haunting melodies and a big, BIG rich voice to deliver them. What a package! One of my favourite singer-songwriters......of any generation" Julian Erskine, Senior Executive Director of Riverdance, Dublin, Ireland "Janie's songs are very grabbing and tug on the heartsrings. Through her lyrics one can see a beautiful portrait of broken hearts mended by the strength of will and new relationships. Janie's voice is incredible and addictive" Kim Sands, Port Townsend Brewing Company, Port Townsend, Wa.
