In Boulder, Colorado, Meighan founded the Boulder Song Circle, co-founded and hosted the weekly Acoustic Brunch songwriter's showcase, and performed regularly along Colorado's front range. He and his wife Nancy currently live in Portland, Oregon.

About & Lincoln Crockett
"Lincoln Crockett has a voice like wind in the hills. There's honesty, vulnerability, and an edge of loss in these modern bluegrass-tinged tunes. Excellent mandolin and guitar playing only highlight the spiritual edge of his singing." - Dan Linn, Rosedrop Media Circus. "You'll hear all his influences -- folk, rock, pop, funk -- but he's found a way to gather them up under the bluegrass mantle and produce something as pleasant as a long summer day." - Don Campbell, The Oregonian. www.lincolncrockett.comMap & Directions
