John Gorka - Benefit for Kansas Public Radio (Sky Smeed opens)
We are thrilled to bring John Gorka back to Lawrence for the first time in nine years!
Hailing from New Jersey, but forged in the Greenwich Village Fast Folk scene, he honed his craft and persona into an unmistakable image. The shy, wry, insightful, and yes, sensitive singer-songwriter has been copied and parodied. But the old coat he wove still fits, and still suits him well. The old songs ring as true as they ever did, and the new ones are just as good.
Rolling Stone called him "the leading singer/songwriter of the New Folk movement while the Boston Globe said "Gorka is widely heralded for the sophisticated intelligence and provocative originality of his songs.   The New York Times said: "Listening to John Gorka, one can get goosebumps all over.  There are many reasons: fresh lyrics, a stunning emotional baritone, and his twisted humor."

We are also excited to have the very fine Lawrence based singer-songwriter Sky Smeed doing a 20 minute opening set!
