John Gorka to Perform at Greenwich Library

| No Comments
John Gorka, described by Rolling Stone magazine as "the preeminent male singer-songwriter of what has been dubbed the New Folk Movement," will perform at the Cole Auditorium on Sunday, April 29 at 3:30 p.m., as part of the Peterson Concert series. Gorka was first exposed to legendary folk troubadours like Stan Rogers, Eric Andersen, Tom Paxton and Claudia Schmidt as a soundman at Godfrey Daniels, one of the oldest and most venerable music institutions in eastern Pennsylvania.

Many well known artists have recorded and/or performed John Gorka songs, including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith, Mary Black and Maura O'Connell. Gorka has also worked with Ani DiFranco, Lucy Kaplansky, John and Rob Genadek, and Patty Larkin among other noted musicians. His video for the single "When She Kisses Me" was in long-term rotation on VH1's "Current Country," as well as on CMT and the Nashville Network.
