For more than 25 years, Jencks has been a member of the international Folk circuit, In that time Jencks has released 15 CDs Merging conservatory training with his Irish roots and working-class upbringing, Joe delivers musical narratives filled with heart, soul, groove and grit. Blending well-crafted instrumentals and vivid songwriting, Jencks serves it all up with a lyrical baritone voice that has the edgy richness of a good sea-salt caramel. Joe’s a talented performer whose repertoire moves between the world of contemporary and traditional folk, combining them into a mix of memorable music.

“Joe Jencks is the type of musician that will cause you to drop that morning newspaper or pull your car to the side of the road when you hear his songs. He is the type of artist that will turn heads in his direction when he walks onto a stage. His voice will instantly draw you into his passionate songs. He is the type of musician whose music will become part of you. His craft and artistry will remind you of the best efforts of Phil Ochs, Stan Rogers, and Woody Guthrie. The troubadour tradition is alive and well in the 21st century with the music of Joe Jencks.” •Ron Olesko, WFDU “FM Teaneck, NJ, Folk Music Network.

Boston musician Sam Bayer is your literate, exuberant guide to an imaginary world where housewives win the Nobel Prize in physics, poker-playing children gamble over their bedtimes, and metaphorical elephants pirouette in the den, four and a half minutes at a time. His latest studio CD, The Great Indoors, brings 11 gems from his universe to yours. See why Sam was one of the Linden Tree’s Winter Potpourri favorite last December.
