BROTHER SUN with opening act by The Levins
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.
From three major points on the map Boston, New York, and Chicago - Greg, Pat, and Joe have blended themselves into Brother Sun: a unique celebration of the amazing power of singing together. As they will tell you, the music of Brother Sun is not resident in any one of them but rather it exists in the space between them. Audiences feel this sincerity immediately. Their combined musical skills make for an unforgettable experience - three rich voices blending on a well-crafted foundation of guitar, slide guitar, piano, ukulele, and bouzouki.
The response to the trio's music has been tremendous! From main stage performances with standing ovations at Kerrville, Falcon Ridge, Philadelphia, Old Songs, Connecticut and other Folk Festivals; to sold out concerts throughout the U.S.A, Brother Sun has earned the respect of fans, colleagues, and presenters alike. And, their music and message appeals to fans of both contemporary and traditional music.
Opening for Brother Sun will be The Levins (pronounced LeVINNs) who offer harmony-driven acoustic music that is warm and uplifting without skating over the complexities of life. Their albums have garnered invitations to collaborate and perform nationally and in Amsterdam and England. Their most recent release, Trust, hit the Top 10 on the Folk DJ charts and continues to connect on a universal level with a lighthearted depth and a celebration of our common humanity. THIS CONCERT WILL BE HELD AT THE UNITARIAN SOCIETY, 50 BLOOMFIELD AVENUE, HARTFORD, CT 06105
