Upcoming Events:

In honor of Dorothy Day's birthday month, please join us for music and desserts at Our Lady of the Road on Saturday, November 18th at 7:00 pm

We are delighted to feature acclaimed folk musician Joe Jencks with an opening set by local favorites Loose Associates, featuring Mark Anella and Sophia Wilson, in a family-friendly benefit concert for St. Peter Claver Catholic Worker. 

Purchase tickets in advance here: or sliding-scale donation at the door. Let's celebrate Dorothy's belief that "the world will be saved by beauty" with music!

Joe Jencks is a 25-year veteran of the international folk circuit, an award-winning songwriter, and celebrated vocalist based in Chicago. Merging conservatory training with his Irish roots and working-class upbringing, Joe delivers engaged musical narratives filled with heart, soul, groove and grit. Having penned several #1 Folksongs including the ever-relevant Lady of The Harbor, Jencks is also co-founder of the harmony trio, Brother Sun.

Loose Associates is an indie-folk duo featuring Mark Anella on guitar, Sophia Wilson on banjo. Their original melodies, rich vocal harmonies, and humor bring so much joy to their audiences. When they're not delighting listeners with their music, Mark works with our friends and neighbors at Sunchoke Farms and Sophia spends her days caring for South Bend's most vulnerable residents as a staff member at Motels4Now.

Check out the first set in this open mic from February to hear Loose Associates, and this live studio version of Joe's "Love Will Guide My Way".
