Singer/Songwriter John Gorka at Next Stage Arts


Date & Time: 
Mar 19 2017 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Next
Stage Arts and Twilight Music present contemporary folk singer/songwriter John
Gorka at Next Stage Arts on Sunday, March 19 at 7:30 pm.

John Gorka is perhaps the quintessential iconic
singer/songwriter of the 1980’s folk scene. Hailing from
New Jersey,
he honed his craft and persona as a shy, wry and insightful singer/songwriter
in the Greenwich Village “Fast Folk” and Boston music scenes. Gorka got his
start at Godfrey Daniels, a neighborhood coffeehouse in eastern Pennsylvania
which is one of the oldest and most venerable music institutions in the
country.  After releasing his first album with Minnesota-based Red House
Records in 1987, he recorded five albums with Windham Hill’s Will Ackerman’s
High Street Records between 1989 and 1996.  Since then he has released six
more solo albums on Red House, plus one with label-mates Lucy Kaplansky and
Eliza Gilkyson under the name Red Horse. He continues to tour, playing
festivals, theaters and clubs all over North America and Europe.  Rolling Stone magazine calls him “the leading
singer-songwriter of the New Folk Movement.”

Many well known artists have recorded and/or performed John
Gorka songs, including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith, Mary Black and
Maura O’Connell. John has graced the stage of Austin City Limits, Mountain
Stage and etown, and has appeared on CNN. His song “Where No Monuments
Stand” is featured in the documentary Every War Has Two Losers, about activist
and Oregon Poet Laureate William Stafford.
