A Joe Jencks concert is definitely not a visit to the inner world of some guy with a guitar who wants you to sit still and listen politely. It’s an occasion for singing, a contagious rising up of voices, an act of joy and defiance!
Jencks is also a co-founder the dynamic new trio called Brother Sun with colleagues Greg Greenway and Pat Wictor.
