At its heart, folk music has always been about everyday people: their lifeblood, their struggles, and their fight for justice in the face of inhumanity. On Thursday, Golden Link Folk Singing Society will present Si Kahn, Joe Jencks, and Maria Dunn, a trio of engaging singer-songwriters who have long dedicated their careers to such songs. These clear-voiced folk troubadours ply their trade in the hallowed tradition of such legends as Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger. Sometimes all that is needed is a lush acoustic guitar and a heartfelt song.
Si Kahn, Joe Jencks, and Maria Dunn will perform Thursday, March 9, at Rochester Christian Reformed Church, 2750 Atlantic Avenue, Penfield. 7:30 p.m. $10-$20; children 12 and under are free. 857-9265; goldenlink.org.
