Joe Uehlein: Rebel Songs and Love Songs
Whether with his band, The U-Liners, or as a solo artist, Joe’s concerts always include a wide and deep presentation of Americana and roots-Rock music, including folk, rock’n roll, bluegrass, country, soul, and more. But his solo shows take on a more intimate feel, talking more about music, politics, and the human spirit.

From his early days growing up along the banks of the great Lake Erie, and working in an aluminum mill in Central Pennsylvania, Joe developed a keen interest in Rock & Roll and the Folk and Country sounds of working class music, protest music, and environmentally-themed songs and has become a well-known performer of songs of work, hope, freedom, and environmental action and labor rights.

Joe has performed with Pete Seeger, Lester Chambers of The Chambers Brothers, Dave Alvin, Steve Earle, Tom Morello, Boots Riley, Jill Sobule, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer, Emma’s Revolution, John Kadlecik, Billy Bragg, and with the punk band, the Dropkick Murphys. Joe has also performed at all of Washington, DC’s finest venues, including the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, The Birchmere, Strathmore Music Hall, IOTA Club, Jammin’ Java, the Hamilton, Howard Theater, the Black Cat, and more. Joe has also played NYC’s Knitting Factory, Starlight Ballroom, The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Bally’s in Las Vegas, among other fine venues. Joe has played all across the U.S., as well as in Canada, Japan, Germany, Switzerland, Great Britain, and Venezuela.

 

“Always uplifting, always hopeful, always captivating.”

Robin Broad

“Joe’s songs point to a future we can build together.”

John Cavanagh

“Joe is a talented storyteller, songwriter and musician, and his songs and stories illuminate paths forward to a better world.”

John Cavanagh

“When Joe reaches back to Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger and the songs of coal miners and immigrants and the environment, he is inspiring us all toward a better future.”

Robin Broad
