Folk Music Fest is almost here! Come out this Saturday 11:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. p.m. at the Gurler House, 205 Pine St. in DeKalb. Rain location is the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 158 N 4th St., DeKalb.
This is a free concert, presented by the Gurler Heritage Association. Food, Drink and Art will be available for purchase, with proceeds supporting the Gurler House.
Rain or Shine, international touring musician and DeKalb native Joe Jencks takes the stage at 1:30 p.m.! Joe is noted for his unique merging of musical beauty, social consciousness, and spiritual exploration. 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.
This quote from folk music titan Pete Seeger perfectly describes why Joe Jencks is not to be missed:
“The key to the future is people joining in. The music of Joe Jencks captures this essential spirit. Joe is a fantastic singer who carries on the traditions.” – Pete Seeger
