Watch this trailer for Brooklyn in July

He’ll  surprise you and awaken the cynics.   He’s plumbing for lyrical gold like a social archaeologist.  His songs are universal, his rhythm infectious and in concert, he is funny as hell one moment and transcendent the next.

HE BELIEVES IN STORIES

Come to a show. Mystical, historical, and humorous roads, twisting through vivid cinematography.  Short 4:00 films. Visual, artful and human. Brooklyn in July, Oklahoma towns, rattlesnake tails, turbary thieves, Galway heather, meter maids and drunk roosters. At the end of the night, you’ll leave inspired.  “The Long Note” is a phrase in Irish culture.”The Long Note” is that place of resonance and transcendence where the music, the voices, the instruments, and the community ALL come together and unite.

THERE IS A LONG NOTE & JOE IS REACHING FOR IT

Whether he’s picking his 48 Gibson, weaving through lap slide songs or looping his fiddle, he will draw you in.  It happens every time.  Watch a YouTube video. It’s good, but it’s not the same. You gotta come to a show.  With unwavering courage to be himself, he is literate, poignant and funny as hell.

He lives in Ithaca NY, and tours regularly in the US, Ireland and Canada.
