"For almost two decades, Chicago-based musician and Classics degree holder Joe Goodkin has toured the United States as a modern bard performing his unique one-man folk opera retelling of Homer’s Odyssey. He has now turned his attention to Homer’s other epic poem and created a 17 song adaptation of the Iliad steeped in ancient and modern war literature as well as interviews and his experiences playing music at VA hospitals as part of recreational therapy for veterans experiencing PTSD and other related war traumas."
