T-Claw Crawford

T-Claw Crawford is a dance caller, musician, and community organizer. Growing up in Nashville, TN, he played punk rock and jazz until he heard old time string music. He has toured by bicycle across 8 states and New Zealand by mini-van with the old time variety show band, Fiddle Pie. T-Claw is the “The Johnny Appleseed” of square dancing, having instigated his enthusiastic brand of community music and dance get-togethers far and wide. You’ll see T bopping around Brasstown with his beloved Bridget and delightful daughters. T’s favorite foods are pie and biscuits. He enjoys river sports, honky tonkin’, yard games, wildcrafting, and cribbage.
