Wolverine Farm Publishing and Wolverine Farm Publick House strive to be valuable resources for local performers. In order to better serve the music and artist community and to encourage individual artists to interact with one another and build a strong network, we present the Musician in Residence (MUIR) program. The music residency hosts four artists for a three month period, holding space for exploration, experimentation, and collaboration! These concerts are held upstairs (or outside in the summer) every Wednesday at 6pm and open to the public. We encourage tips and donations to the musicians.


Crispy Watkins

Crispy Watkins was raised in the hills of East Tennessee, formed by fiddle tunes, Delta Blues, and Knoxville’s scruffy Americana. Rhythmic and inviting, Crispy’s tunes come up from the rivers and mountains to strike at deep questions and heart-yearnings that dance between mind, body, and soul connections, confronting pain and seeking healing. This is old-time inspired queer roots music with an ecological devotion and a mystic heart. Crispy is based in Fort Collins, CO, since 2014. 

In 2023 he is emerging with an updated sound that is experimental and heartfelt, moving both body and mind through rhythms and melodies that invite participation in the greater landscape of living.
