Folk trio Brother Sun brings a gospel and country tinged performance to Excursions.
Joe Jencks, Pat Wictor and Greg Greenway comprise Brother Sun, a folk trio boasting rich instrumentation and jarring three-part harmonies. Each a touring solo artist in his own right, the members of the group joined together in 2010 after a mutual festival performance. The group took off, spending much of 2011 touring heavily in support of their self-titled debut album.
Brother Sun stopped by Excursions for a performance and interview with host Niki Dakota. Listen as the group discusses its origin and intense touring schedule, and performs original songs like the haunting “Trouble,” the Allman Brothers-esque “Come With Me,” and the folky ballad “All I Want is a Garden,” as well as a bluesy cover of Mose Allison’s “Everybody’s Cryin’ Mercy.”
The group will be performing at the Miami Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Centerville on February 17th at 7:30PM.
