A 20-year veteran of the international folk circuit, an award-winning songwriter, and celebrated vocalist.
Joe Jencks traveled to Saratoga twice during the pandemic to stream live for his fans from Caffe Lena’s historic stage. Those shows were among the most-watched of more than 200 streams we produced during the shutdown. Merging conservatory training with his Irish roots and working-class upbringing, Jencks delivers anthemic ballads filled with heart, soul, groove and grit. Having penned several chart-topping folk songs, including the ever-relevant “Lady of The Harbor,” Jencks inspires tears, commitment, compassion and optimism.
