The influences of his music-teacher parents can be heard in each of his more than 20 albums. He is a songwriter’s songwriter and has had songs recorded by Trisha Yearwood, Kathy Mattea, and Peter, Paul and Mary. As a touring musician and a regular at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Craig has shared a stage with the likes of Richard Thompson, Janis Ian, Donovan, Gretchen Peters, Michael McDonald, and Kim Richey. Craig shares his songwriting expertise as a professor at the University of Miami and through songwriting workshops.
