Bon Voyage...

Dear Friends & Fans of Brother Sun,

The last eight years have been an extraordinary experience for all three of us. When we came together in 2010 to see what might come of our collaborative efforts, I don’t think any of us imagined that the music of Brother Sun would land so soundly in the hearts of so many people. Nor that it would carry us so far, for so long. And as we wind down 2017, we are tremendously thankful that so many people in so many places throughout North America have embraced our harmonies, songwriting, musicality and camaraderie.  And so it is with certain joy and nostalgia that we embark this week on Brother Sun’s final run of concerts, before we go on indefinite hiatus.

To say that we are filled with a spirit of humility and gratitude for the support you have shown us is insufficient. From east to west throughout the US and in Canada, you have been a part of helping us create moments of magic through our performances. From festivals and large concert halls, to Folk clubs, house concerts, classrooms, and even a march in Selma, Alabama – we are honored that our music has been part of the soundtrack for so many lives and moments.

As our fans and supporters, your generosity and graciousness have moved us as much as we hope our music has moved you. Thank you. We would not have become Brother Sun without you cheering us on! Our deal with you has always been that if you show up, we will give you our best. And you have shown up for us in so many ways over the years, and we have given you our very best. We are proud of the records we have made, the concerts we have played, the songs we have written, and the community we are privileged to call our musical home. We also look forward to the music we will all create separately, and in cooperation with other colleagues and friends. In addition, we are each looking forward to some much-anticipated time with our respective families and home communities.

So, this week you can catch Brother Sun on:

Nov. 1st  (Wednesday) in Takoma Park, MD at Allyworld

Nov. 2nd  (Thursday) in Landsdowne, PA at the Landsdowne Folk Club

Nov. 3rd (Friday) in Garden City, NY at the Garden Stage

Nov. 4th (Saturday) in Schenectady, NY at The Eight Step Coffee House (w/ Holly Near)

Nov. 5th (Sunday) in Westport, CT at Voices Café – Two Shows: 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM

From all of us – we say THANK YOU for an amazing eight years, for extraordinary kindness, for wondrous music, and for life-changing friendships.

We look forward to seeing you this week, or down the road at solo shows. And for those of you we miss – our recordings will continue to be available. Most of all, we remain grateful for the privilege to make this marvelous music, together.

In Gratitude,

Brother Sun

Brother Sun to Suspend Touring in Fall 2017

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Dear Brother Sun Fans & Friends,

As another year draws to a close, we offer you our most sincere gratitude for helping us make it a wondrous year of concerts and performances! With festival and venue appearances across the United States and Canada, we have been deeply touched by your many kindnesses and your genuine support. We thank you!

Now looking forward to next year, we have some important news to share: 2017 will be our last year touring as Brother Sun.

As many of you know, we have navigated a multitude of logistical and financial challenges to make this far-flung ensemble work for the last 6 years. It has been an honor and a privilege to create music together as Brother Sun. Our goal from the beginning has been to make Brother Sun greater than the sum of its parts, to present a positive example of men working together. We believe that we’ve done that. Together, with all of you supporting us, we’ve made something magical and uplifting. It’s an honor and a privilege to create music together. We have made some of the best music of our lives, and performed for so many amazing audiences in so many spectacular places. Genuine magic has touched us, and we are aware of just how rare that is.

However, priorities change, and the conditions of life change. We each want to pursue other artistic expressions, have much more time to give to our loved ones, and pursue a healthier balance between our personal and artistic commitments. And we each recognize that we have long lists of creative and life pursuits that are precluded by the depth of dedication required to continue traveling as Brother Sun. The conclusion we’ve mutually and amicably arrived at, after much dialogue, is that we need to bring Brother Sun to a close. We will suspend touring together as a trio in the fall of 2017, for the foreseeable future.

We know many of you will want to see us at least once more as a trio. And we want to see you too! That is why we wanted to give you plenty of notice. As such, we will continue to tour as Brother Sun nearly full-time through mid-September of 2017. And we’ll have a final weekend of shows in the Northeast, the first weekend of November 2017.

It’s a good time to sing healing, love, and goodness into the world, and that’s what we’ll be doing in our last year together as Brother Sun. We also hope that you will continue to follow and support our solo careers and other collaborative projects beyond Brother Sun.

It’s been an amazing six years, and we still have almost an entire year remaining as an ensemble! So… We’ll see you on the road, and look forward to having the chance to thank you in person for being such amazing friends and fans!


We wish for you a holiday season filled with good company and good music!

In Gratitude,

Brother Sun
