John Gorka in Concert
Saturday, November 5, 2016
$23 Members, $25 Non-Members(General tickets)

John Gorka's show will be great fun.  Join us!

From New Jersey, John Gorka is a world-renowned singer-songwriter who got his start at a neighborhood coffeehouse in eastern Pennsylvania, Godfrey Daniels, in the late 1970s. Soon he started traveling to New York City, where Jack Hardys legendary Fast Folk circle (a breeding ground for many a major singer-songwriter) became a powerful source of education and encouragement. Folk meccas like Texas Kerrville Folk Festival (where he won the New Folk Award in 1984) and Boston followed, and his stunningly soulful baritone voice and original songwriting began turning heads. Those who had at one time inspired him  Suzanne Vega, Bill Morrissey, Nanci Griffith, Christine Lavin, Shawn Colvin  had become his peers.  His albums and his touring (over 150 nights a year at times) brought new accolades for his craft, as his rich multifaceted songs full of depth, beauty and emotion gained increasing attention from critics and audiences across the country, as well as in Europe.  In addition to his 11 critically acclaimed albums, John released a collectors edition box featuring a hi-definition DVD and companion CD called The Gypsy Life.  In 2010, he also released an album with his friends and Red House label-mates Lucy Kaplansky and Eliza Gilkyson under the name Red Horse, which received high praise from critics and fans alike, and landed on the Billboard Folk Charts as one of the most played albums on folk radio.  Many well known artists have recorded and/or performed John Gorka songs, including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith, Mary Black and Maura OConnell. John has graced the stage of Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, etown and has appeared on CNN.  His new song Where No Monuments Stand is featured in the upcoming documentary Every War Has Two Losers, about activist and Oregon Poet Laureate William Stafford (1914-1993).  John Gorkas inimitable musical performance is only surpassed by his rare and delightful sense of humor on stage.
