Brother Sun

Saturday, May 3, 2014

$20 Members, $22 Non-Members(General tickets)

National touring artists Joe Jencks, Greg Greenway and Pat Wictor have made their mark as veteran touring singer-songwriters. The trio’s harmonies, as much as their lyrics, tell what they are about: warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, rousing as a call to arms.  Fusing folk, Americana, blues, pop, jazz, rock, and a cappella singing, Brother Sun is an explosion of musical diversity and harmony, in the finest of male singing traditions.  From three major points on the map – Chicago, Boston, and New York – Joe, Greg, and Pat have truly blended themselves into Brother Sun, a unique celebration of the amazing power of singing together.  As they will tell you, Brother Sun is not resident in any one of them – it exists between them and audiences feel this intimacy immediately. Their combined musical skills make for an unforgettable experience – three rich voices blending on a well-crafted foundation of guitar, slide guitar, bouzouki and piano.  After main stage performances with standing ovations at both Kerrville and Falcon Ridge Folk Festivals in 2011 and sold out concerts throughout the US, they earned not only return invitations to Kerrville and Falcon Ridge but also invitations to Old Songs Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival and Kerrville Wine & Music Festival. The trio’s self titled album debuted at No. 2 on the Folk DJ Charts (it stayed on the charts for 8 months) and was named the No. 8 album of 2011 on FOLK-DJ.  In addition, Brother Sun made the “Best of 2011” list for over a dozen radio stations in the US, including WUMB (Boston), WFUV (NYC), and WFMT – The Midnight Special (Chicago).   Their new CD Some Part of the Truth (2013) takes us on an evocative and vivid journey through America’s cities and heartlands, where unsung heroes struggle and sometimes win the daily battles of life and love.   Some Part of the Truth debuted at #1 on the Folk DJ chart in April, with Joe Jenck’s song Lady of the Harbor also debuting at #1.
