Americana, On Stage

Alive After Five: Jeff Crosby

When: Wed., July 5, 5 p.m. 2017

Idaho boy turned Americana star Jeff Crosby is heading out of the heartland and coming home to Boise as an Alive After Five headliner. Crosby's summer is packed to bursting: Along with this mini-tour of the Northwest, on which Boise is just one stop, he and his Nashville, Tenn.-based band The Refugees are planning an album release before the first leaves start to fall.

A singer-songwriter, Crosby has been spreading his personal take on Americana—a mix of folk, rock and roll, country, bluegrass and R&B—from coast to coast since leaving home five years ago, playing more than 300 shows with The Refugees, Jerry Joseph and on his own, between 2015 and 2016 alone.

When Crosby plays on Wednesday, we'll be reminded, despite his travels, that this Idaho son sounds like home.
