Chicago-based singer and activist Joe Jencks has performed with such artists as Pete Seeger, Utah Phillips, Joe Glazer, and Charlie King. A Joe Jencks concert, says the Seattle Folklore Society's Brad Warren, is "an occasion for singing, a contagious rising up of voices, an act of joy and defiance." Joe's songs have traveled to every continent via his own performances, radio, CDs, webcasts, and other musicians. He is noted for his unique merging of musical beauty, social consciousness, and spiritual exploration. Joe Jencks weaves a diverse web of stories with brilliant musical skill, ensnaring even the most rigid of hearts, inviting them to open. His songs invite us to live inside of our passions and our beliefs.
