The Washington Post has called David Gordon "an irresistable performer." He's a life-long troubadour whose compelling voice, keen sense of drama, and wacky wit have charmed audiences worldwide for more than 40 years. |
David's international performing and recording career reaches from Bach to bluegrass, from grand opera to jazz, from Mozart to songs of the Oregon Trail.
SONGS OF CONSCIENCE AND HOPE
"Singing My Heart Out" is an eclectic and thought-provoking one-man show of songs and stories about slavery, poverty, Mexican farm workers, the Great Depression, war, The Wall, compassion, courage, hope, and the future. There will be tears and laughter.
The playlist spans more than 150 years and includes songs by Stephen Foster, Woody Guthrie, Yip Harburg, Fred Hellerman, Si Kahn, John Flynn, David Wilcox, Tom Waits, Louise Mosrie, Robbie O'Donnell, Anaïs Mitchell, and more.
THE PERFECT VENUE
Over the past two decades, David has presented a variety of concerts at the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Monterey Peninsula. Its one of his favorite venues because of its intimacy and friendly informality. In that space over the years, David has presented classical and folk concerts, vocal workshops, poetry and music evenings, and narrated opera ensemble concerts.
For his acoustic and storytelling performances at UUCMP, David sits in the focus of a semi-circle of comfortable audience chairs. The performance is all acoustic and unamplified, and the room is perfect for live music and David's fascinating stories.
Seating is limited to 120, and David usually fills the house at UUCMP, so advance ticket purchase is highly recommended. We cannot guarantee ticket availability on the day of the concert.
