Northport Arts Coalition Presents StarLight Coffeehouse – Brother Sun In Concert
May 19, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
National Touring Artists Greg Greenway, Pat Wictor and Joe Jencks have made their mark as veteran touring singer-songwriters, but Brother Sun is no songwriter’s round. The trio’s harmonies, as much as their lyrics, tell what they are about — warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, and rousing as a call to arms. Fusing folk, Americana, blues, pop, jazz, rock, and a cappella singing, Brother Sun is an explosion of musical diversity and harmony — three rich voices blending on a well-crafted foundation of guitar, slide guitar, piano, ukulele and bouzouki. Their performances are marked by exceptional original songs, ethereal harmonies, off-the-cuff humor and standing ovations. Brother Sun’s self-titled debut album (2011) was #2 on the Folk DJ Chart, and made the “Best of 2011” and “Best of 2012” lists for over a dozen radio stations in the US. Their 2013 release, Some Part of the Truth, was the #1 CD on Folk-DJ for 2013 and contained the #1 song, “Lady of the Harbor”. Their recent release, Weights & Wings, was 2016 “Album of the Year” on Folk-DJ and #1 on Roots Music Report’s Contemporary Folk Chart. Doors open & open-mic sign-up at 7:00pm. Show starts at 7:30pm. Tickets are $20 in advance and $22 at the door. Gourmet coffee and select refreshments are available for purchase.
