About this event

Two great performers - one concert. We have very limited seating so act now if you'd like to come!

Joe Jencks sings with a lyric baritone voice that has the edgy richness of a good sea-salt caramel. A 25-year veteran of the international Folk circuit, an award-winning songwriter and celebrated vocalist based in the Chicago area, Joe delivers engaged musical narratives filled with heart, soul, groove, and grit. Jencks has penned several #1 Folksongs including the ever-relevant Lady of The Harbor. Joe is a dual US-Irish citizen and has served as a Cultural Ambassador with the U.S. State Department.

Maria Dunn is a true preserver of the spirit of folk music, the 2022 Juno-winning (www.mariadunn.com) is often compared to Woody Guthrie for her keen social awareness and her melodic, unvarnished songs about the lives of working people.

Thirteen years as a volunteer DJ in community radio (1987-2000) encouraged Maria to listen widely to the master songwriters, singers and instrumentalists of folk and roots music. Discovering their recordings and becoming an avid fan and supporter of live music in her community, she absorbed the important messages of compassion and human struggle that have always been central to the writings of folk artists from Buffy Ste. Marie to Hazel Dickens, from Bill Broonzy to Dick Gaughan.

By the time she began writing her own music in the mid-90s, Maria was learning to draw deeply on the folk tradition of storytelling through song to honour “ordinary” people, past and present.

Join us for a memorable evening at Whole Village. Seating is VERY limited.
