Joe Jencks' concerts have been called an occasion for singing, a contagious rising up of voices, an act of joy and defiance, and that's a good start for a description of the evening captured on this episode of the Folk Show Road Show.
The setting is the home of Andrew and Laurel Zydney in State College, where Joe has performed both solo and as part of the trio Brother Sun (with Pat Wictor and Greg Greenway).
In this solo concert Joe sings powerful and well crafted songs, mostly his own, entertains with stories from his life on the road, and surprises us with some gems from American history. If you haven't experienced a house concert in person, this recording will give you a taste of what a welcoming and enjoyable experience it can be.
