Joe Jencks ~ Tour News - LiveStream: On A Midwinter's Night - THANK YOU!
Thursday, December 8, 2022
Dear Friends in Music,
On a beautiful bright blue December morning, I awake on the road in Saratoga County, NY and begin the last run of road shows for 2022. It has been an extraordinary year. Thank you for returning to concert halls and coffee houses. Thank you for supporting your local Folk DJs and NPR stations and Community Radio. Thank you for keeping the faith and continuing to volunteer at your local clubs and concert series. And thanks for helping me put new music into the world this year.
For those interested in ordering the new CD, The Coming of the Years, it is available through www.joejencks.com. All CDs both back catalogue and new are $20 ea. or 3 for $50, now through the end of December. Please use the code HOLIDAY2022 when ordering. The new CD is featured in the upcoming edition of Irish Music Magazine, published in Dublin, IRE.
I was delighted to receive these comments about the new recording from one of my friends and mentors in the contemporary Irish music world: “In a dark and frequently shallow time, how refreshing to hear a man willing to wear his heart on his sleeve. How refreshing to hear someone sing with passion about matters which are not directly related to HIM. A man with a golden voice, who has a great feeling for history, and the role that songs play in documenting that history. The Coming of the Years, by Joe Jencks is a gorgeous record. His reading of City of Chicago is moving to me, and I thank him for it.” ~ Luka Bloom
I have two more live in-person concerts, a couple recording dates, and one last LiveStream for the year. Then I head into a quieter time with family and friends for a few weeks during the holidays.

THANK YOU for contributing to an extraordinary year. There have been difficulties and losses to be sure. But there have also been wonders and joys and victories. And most of all there has been community, deep and wide and beautiful. Thanks for being a part of mine, and letting me be a part of yours.
In Gratitude & Song,
~ Joe Jencks
