Joe Crookston – December 10, 2016

With all the performers out there, an artist has to go beyond good…and Joe does.–Sing Out Magazine

Joe transforms the life experiences of the people he meets in his travels into poignant or hilarious music.

Joe is a master storyteller capturing the essence and character of the people he meets on life’s journey in setting to song their memories, experiences and dreams. In concert, he is funny as hell one moment and transcendent the next. Examples of  his themes are the stories of troubled youth with whom he worked in prison and his own grandfather’s story of helping construct the runways for the atomic bomb attacks on Japan. Joe wrote the music for the documentary film “Blue Tattoo” which is about his friend Dina Jacobson, a survivor of the Holocaust.

Brother Sun – March 4, 2017

Glorious harmonies and off-the-cuff humor highlight this skilled presentation of blues, jazz, pop, rock, folk and acappella singing.

Folk on steroids! Brother Sun melds heart-lifting anthems with the art of harmonic massage. Nimble, strong and soothing all at once!—Mary Sue Twohy, The Village Folk Show, Sirius XM

From three major points on the map— Boston, New York, and Chicago—Greg Greenway, Pat Wictor, and Joe Jencks have blended themselves into Brother Sun: a unique celebration of the amazing power of singing together. As they will tell you, the music of Brother Sun is not resident in any one of them—but rather it exists in the space between them. Audiences feel this sincerity immediately. Their combined musical skills make for an unforgettable experience—three rich voices blending on a well-crafted foundation of guitar, slide guitar, piano, ukulele, and bouzouki.
