John Jencks & Rod MacDonald Live at LIM
SUNDAY STREET CONCERT SERIES CONTINUES
On Sunday, February 10 at 3 p.m. The Long Island Museum, WUSB-FM and the Greater Port Jefferson – Northern Brookhaven Arts Council welcome John Jencks (of Brother Sun) and Rod MacDonald, performing live in the Carriage Museum’s Gillespie Room for the Sunday Street Concert Series.
Joe Jencks merges conservatory training with his Irish roots and working class upbringing, delivering engaged musical narratives filled with heart, soul, groove and grit. A co-founder of Brother Sun, Joe merges musical beauty, social consciousness, and spiritual exploration and delivers his vivid songs with a lyric baritone voice. His two recent albums, Poets, Philosophers, Workers & Wanderers, and The Forgotten, have received critical acclaim.
Rod MacDonald was part of the 1980’s “folk revival” in Greenwich Village. ‘American Jerusalem,” “The Coming Of The Snow,” “A Sailor’s Prayer” are among his best known songs and many have been covered by Dave Van Ronk, Shawn Colvin, Garnet Rogers, and others. His 12th solo recording, “Beginning Again,” was released in 2018. Rod has also been a part of the Sunday Street Series’ annual Bob Dylan birthday celebration for many years.
