March 4, 2016 - JOE JENCKS OF BROTHER SUN -
sponsored by The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Central Nassau
   

 

Joe Jencks of Brother Sun in Concert at Garden Stage

sponsored by The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Central Nassau
223 Stewart Ave, Garden City NY
 
March 4, 2016 - 8:30 pm
open mic - 7:30 pm
 
With nearly two decades under his belt on the international Folk music circuit, Joe Jencks has become a favorite singer, performer, and songwriter of countless music fans throughout North America. He has recorded ten solo CDs, three CDs with the harmony trio Brother Sun, and has appeared as a guest artist on more than two-dozen recordings by other musicians. From performances at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to festivals, folk venues, and spiritual communities – Joe’s deep sense of musical beauty, history, and social consciousness have invigorated audiences and raised the bar on what it means to be a modern Folksinger. Joe’s music has been a favorite of Folk DJs as well, earning him the number 1 song for the whole of 2013 - Lady of The Harbor - as well as the number 1 song for December 2016 - The Longest Night of The Year.
 
Joe’s lyric baritone voice, combined with his well crafted heart-felt lyrics weave a richly layered tapestry. Joe melds songwriting and performance agility with a deft hand on Guitar and Bouzouki, blending contemporary and historic Folk traditions into a mélange of acoustic music that is both familiar and yet innovative. As a soloist or in combination with his trio mates, Greg Greenway and Pat Wictor, Joe Jencks offers listeners the finest traditions in acoustic music, served up with heart, soul, groove, and strength.
 
Joe’s much anticipated 10th solo CD, Poet’s, Philosophers, Workers, and Wanderers, will be widely available in March, 2016.
