Bristol’s Stone Church Coffee House at the First Congregational Church welcomes Joe Jencks on April 23rd.
Joe Jencks is an international touring musician, award-winning songwriter, and celebrated vocalist known for his performances of musical beauty, social consciousness and spiritual exploration. A 20-year veteran of the international Folk circuit, Jencks has released 15 CDs in that time.
Attending the Music Conservatory at Milliken University in Decatur, Ill., Jencks received degrees in vocal music performance, music education and choral conducting. Along with folk music, he parlayed his talents into other musical genres, including jazz, opera and classical music.
Merging conservatory training with his Irish roots and working-class upbringing, Joe delivers engaged musical narratives filled with heart, soul, groove and grit. Blending well-crafted instrumentals and vivid songwriting, Jencks serves it all up with a lyric baritone voice that has the edgy richness of a good sea-salt caramel.
