"This is not reviewers hype... this guy is flat out good,"
Rodger Nichols of The Dalles Oregon Chronicle
From the first strum of his 1948 Gibson, through stories of Polish farmers, milkwood poetry, Tinian Island, Dylan Thomas, Taoist parables, ex slaves and drunken roosters you'll be drawn in and deeply moved by his music and stories. It happens every time. Watch a YouTube video. Check him out. It's good... but not the same.
He’ll sing to you ~ You’ll sing with him…His music embraces the universal, connects us, is masterful and downright fun.
There is no doubt, you'll be glad you came to this show. Flint, let's show Joe a warm welcome for his first Flint Folk concert ~
