In February, 2019, Joe and Rod played a memorable concert for us in the Sunday Street Series in the Gillespie Room at The Long Island Museum. We planned an encore concert for this February but, due to the COVID-19 situation, we’ll do this as a virtual event. The concert is a free event but viewer donations to the artists will be gratefully accepted.


Joe Jencks is a 22-year veteran of the international Folk circuit, an award-winning songwriter and a celebrated vocalist based in the Chicago area. He is known for his performances of musical beauty, social consciousness and spiritual exploration. Joe delivers engaged musical narratives filled with heart, soul, groove, and grit. Blending well-crafted instrumentals and vivid songwriting, Jencks serves it all up with a lyric baritone voice. Co-founder of the harmony trio Brother Sun, Jencks has penned several #1 Folksongs including the ever-relevant Lady of The Harbor. His 2017 solo release ~ Poets, Philosophers, Workers & Wanderers put him at the top of the Folk DJ charts. www.joejencks.com
