Stone Church Arts presents singer-songwriters
BELLOWS FALLS — Singer-songwriters Joe Jencks and Jesse Terry will perform at a Stone Church Arts concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday at The Chapel at Immanuel Episcopal Church, 20 Church St.
Jencks is a 20-year veteran of the international folk circuit, an award-winning songwriter, and celebrated vocalist based in Chicago. Merging conservatory training with his Irish roots and working-class upbringing, Jencks has penned several folksongs including the ever-relevant "Lady of The Harbor." He is also co-founder of the harmony trio, Brother Sun. His newest Solo CD - "Poets, Philosophers, Workers, & Wanderers" - was released May 1, 2017. Th spent several weeks at #1 on Sirius XM's Americana Chart, and was also the #1 CD on the Folk DJ Chart for May 2017, with four songs in the top 10.
Terry has created five albums ("The Runner," "Stay Here With Me," "Empty Seat on a Plane," and his latest pair, "Stargazer and Natural") as well as an EP ("The Calm and the Storm") as part of a career that began in 2010.
By his own definition, Terry has never been a cautious individual, but rather one who finds inspiration and optimism in the solace and joy that making music brings him; and that which he can impart to others.
"Things happen for me at the right place and time when I'm focusing on my art and connecting with people," he suggests. "I've always had the desire to spread peace and unity through my music. This gives me a tangible purpose, even when life doesn't seem to make much sense."
