Circle of Friends Presents John Gorka, Online Concert
Saturday, September 12, 7 p.m., Donations Benefit Franklin Food Pantry
The Circle of Friends Coffeehouse presents an online concert by John Gorka, on Saturday, Sep 12 at 7 p.m. to benefit the Franklin Food Pantry. Called “the pre-eminent male singer-songwriter of the New Folk movement” by Rolling Stone, John Gorka possesses a commandingly beautiful baritone voice. His articulate guitar playing compliments his superb lyrics on songs that are romantic, cosmic, poetic, haunting in their imagery or hilarious.
Many well-known artists have recorded and/or performed his songs, including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith, Mary Black and Maura O’Connell. With a tangle of songs that emotionally connect us all and leave a tender trace, John Gorka stimulates the cerebrum, keeps our smiles agile and fit and reconnects us with what really matters most in music: honesty. His atmosphere allows for the listener to feel his individualized attention, his lyrical tenderness, his care for the guitar and his true presence. http://johngorka.com/
