Join us in welcoming Jalan Crossland back to Miner Brewing Company for a two-night stand on April 27 and 28. Limited seats are available for these much-anticipated solo acoustic performances. Crossland will take the stage at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday for these after-hours shows in the Tap Room.
He casts a sardonic but affectionate eye on the roughhewn lives of Western people. Crossland’s ‘Big Horn Mountain Blues’ is so popular in Wyoming that it is practically the official state song.

From Ten Sleep, Wyo., Crossland is widely acclaimed by audiences, critics, and his musical peers as a premier acoustic guitarist and entertainer. Along with dozens of regional contest awards, his extraordinary guitar work earned him National Fingerstyle Championship honors in 1997 and the State Championship Flatpick Title in his home state in 1999. He is a talented vocalist, banjo player, songwriter, and an engaging showman. In February 2013, Jalan received the Wyoming Governor’s Arts Award. He’s only the second musician in the past decade to receive the honor which recognizes artists, arts organizations and patrons who have displayed excellence in and outstanding service to the arts in Wyoming. Although guitar is his primary instrument, his banjo tunes are always a highlight of the show.
Publications as far-ranging as the New York Times and No Depression have run features on him, and Paste Magazine included him and his ensemble as being among Wyoming’s top bands. He has made numerous television and radio appearances and is portrayed in the short film “Wyomericana,” which won the Laramie Film Festival in 2014. He’s been invited as the opening act on two national tours with Texas songwriting legend Robert Earl Keen. Crossland has released seven albums of primarily his own songs and performs throughout the U.S. and (occasionally) Europe whenever he takes the notion.
To pin any one label on Crossland’s body of work would be a crime. It’s not country. It’s not rock. It sure as hell ain’t your daddy’s bluegrass! His characters and stories come alive to form an often dark, yet highly humorous interpretation of the American Experience.

Kanky songs about drinkin’, fightin’, hobos, roughnecks, trailer park fires, oil-patch strippers, and little neighborhood dogs that bite are lent their truth-is-stranger-than-fiction wobble by virtue of the fact that Jalan was raised and resides in a rural mountain town, population <300.
