CONCERT

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 8

Brother Sun
Super-folk trio with
Greg Greenway, Pat Wictor
and Joe
Jencks

8:00 PM
Tickets: $23/adults; $5/children 12 & under

National Touring Artists Greg Greenway, Pat Wictor, and Joe Jencks have made their mark as veteran touring singer-songwriters, but Brother Sun is no songwriter’s round. The trio’s harmonies, as much as their lyrics, tell what they are about: warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, rousing as a call to arms. Fusing folk, Americana, blues, pop, jazz, rock, and a cappella singing, Brother Sun is an explosion of musical diversity and harmony, in the finest of male singing traditions.
