Joel Mabus

Back to Song Leaders Page

Friday Community Sing Song Leader

Joel Mabus is a maverick in the folk music world. He defies any easy pigeonhole. By turns, he picks a mountain banjo to accompany an ancient ballad, sings a witty song about modern life, plays a sweet Irish melody on guitar, swings a hot jazz number, and then reaches deep for a soulful expression of values in a troubled world. He tops it all with a fiddle tune or old Carter family song -- all skillfully blended into a seamless flow. One fan said, “Its music from the heart that hits you right between the eyes.” A mainstay on the folk circuit these past 30 years, Joel has 17 albums to his credit; the latest is THE BANJO MONOLOGUES.

This is Mark's sixth appearance at the Singing Festival. He will also be leading the the "Singing and Swinging" workshop on Saturday.
