Drawing on his Bachelor's Degree in Classics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his years as a professional musician, Joe's performance represents in a contemporary musical mode both the abridged plot and the performance circumstances of Homer's original oral composition of The Odyssey.

Part lecture, part musical performance, and part interactive discussion, the centerpiece of Joe's program is a 35 minute continuous performance of 24 original songs with lyrics inspired by Odysseus' famous exploits.

Joe's Odyssey can be viewed here.
