Dear Friends in Music,
What a joy it has been to be on tour in western Canada this last week. Reconnecting with dear friends, making new friends, and sharing some wonderful performances with my beloved colleague and friend, Maria Dunn. Continuing this weekend, Maria & I will be performing tonight in Calgary for the Calgary Folk Club. This is my 5th performance for the club, spanning the last 12 years. It is always a joyous night of music.
For those at a distance - the concert tonight (2-16-24) will also be Live-Streamed. You can get your link to the Live-Stream, here - and it will be good for 48 hours: www.showpass.com/double-bill-maria-dunn-ab-joe-jencks-us-livestream
Tomorrow night - Maria and I will be up in Edmonton at The Roxy Theater. More details below and on the Tour Dates section of my web-site: www.joejencks.com.
Continuing into March and April, I will be on the road solo, coast-to-coast in the U.S. Multiple performances upcoming in: Texas, Illinois, Wisconsin, Virginia, New York, Washington state, and more. And in late April, I will be co-facilitating a Conference/ Retreat on Climate Justice at The Mountain retreat center in Highlands, NC. Stay tuned for more info.
My January tours in the U.S. SW and out east were remarkable. Amazing people, music, and sights of the natural world. I just crossed 316,000 miles on my Toyota Camry before I flew to Canada. I bought that car brand new with 57 miles on it, in December of 2014. Still going like a champ. And I am grateful beyond measure to see audiences eagerly returning to concert venues across the continent.
I will send out a more detailed list of dates at the top of March. But for now - please accept my gratitude for your continued support, not only of my music, but of the music scene in total. There is a palpable eagerness in the communities in which I have been traveling, to re-engage with LIVE music. And that says to me that the whole scene is back. Thanks for your part in supporting so many artists in so many places. "There ain't nothing like the real thing..."
In Gratitude & Song,
