Joe's new record, The Candle and the Flame. Cover art by Ricardo Levins Morales.

Dear Friends...

I am writing to you from lovely London, Ontario. I have been up here for a few days at the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals conference. I have been performing with friends Helena Nash, Pat Wictor, Cherly Prashker and Danny Bakan. We stayed up WAY too late last night performing... then talking even later. I love being with friends who also travel the circuit. It is one of the few times I feel normal. :-)

Speaking of which, I am off to Ireland tomorrow morning! I will do my best to keep the Joe's Notes section updated with pictures and journal entries. To get to that page, click the News button on the mail menu... and then click on the journal entries on the right side bar. More to come!

In other news... The Candle and The Flame -- the new CD, did REALLY well on the charts in September! I am tremendously excited and want to thank Jen Cass again for her fabulous work! So... here are the results from the Folk Chart:

#2 Artist for September - Joe Jencks
#3 Record for September - The Candle and The Flame- Joe Jencks - Turtle Bear Music

We also had 3 songs from The Candle and The Flame in the top 10 for the month:

#4 The Sweetest of Rose
#5 Gasoline
#8 For What It's Worth (Buffalo Springfield Cover)

And... as a result of Labor Day Weekend airplay, my labor CD, Rise As One, was back on the charts. SO... We had two records on the chart at the same time. How totally cool is that!

Thanks for all of your support and encouragment. This is not just my effort. Lots of folks have pitched in to help me out over the years and this is where all that amazing positive energy is leading! I am so grateful to all the musicians who helped make the record, and I look forward to touring with the new material throughout the remainder of 2007 and into 2008.

In Gratitude, Peace & Song...
