West Side Folk is thrilled to announce that it will present two very special concerts to benefit Kansas Public Radio, which sustained very heavy budget cuts due to the cutbacks in state funding of the University of Kansas. Brother Sun and John Gorka are playing for reduced fees to do their part to help KPR, and all profits from these concerts will go to KPR.

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, 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, in the finest of male singing traditions.

Appearances at festivals like Falcon Ridge, Kerrville, Old Songs, Vancouver Island, and a summer 2016 appearance at Mariposa attest that Brother Sun is regarded as a must-see live act. Brother Sun’s music and message appeal to mainstream listeners and dedicated folkies alike, to people of widely divergent spiritual and political leanings, and fans of both contemporary and traditional music. They offer the hope of people uniting to create beauty in uncertain and unsettled times.
