John Gorka, Singer/Songwriter and Antje Duvekot opening

St. Claire Eclectic Music Concert Series presents John Gorka.

John Gorka

“Rising from a milieu of lovelorn singer-songwriters, John Gorka illuminates instead with his trademark wordplay, twisting, turning and tying words and phrases in the way a balloon artist creates complex creatures from simple balloons. Few contemporary songwriters coax language as deftly as Gorka.

Gorka’s keen ear picks up the stories of those along his path, folding them into poetry and song. His keen perceptiveness inspires people from all over the world to share their stories. By involving those tales in his music, he escapes the trap of introspection that hobbles less gifted singer-songwriters. His shy, almost self-effacing stage presence focuses attention on the songs. His versatility on guitar and piano keeps his sets musically interesting, while his rich baritone effortlessly executes his bidding.”

Apple Rose Tart: a preview of a new recipe


Apple Rose Tart

Apple Rose Tart

Apple Rose Tart

I’ve been experimenting Apple Rose Tarts of late.  Ran across this idea while researching some new recipes, both for the next cookbook and to expand out the Chanticleer’s breakfast repertoire.

This tart pictured here is with a pecan-date crust using red delicious apples.  It has appealing presentation, is very tasty, and is far more healthy than it looks.  All three great criteria for a recipe.

There’s a catch however. When assembling these tarts, it does take a little time.  It’s not difficult, but the time adds up if doing a tart times 12!

Thus apple rose tarts will be served when there are a few guests in the house.  You will have a better chance to taste this tart if you stay on Sunday or Monday night, or during the low-season.

Comedy of Errors Opens February 20


Comedy of Errors opens February 20 in the Thomas

Comedy of Errors, directed by Kent Gash, written (of course) by William Shakespeare, with Rodney Gardiner playing Dromio and Dromio, runs all season long starting February 20.

This play holds a warm place in my heart.  Years ago (too many to count and tell) my twin sister and I attended this play on a double date.  During the intermission, we changed shirts and switched dates.  When some women in the ladies room questioned our quick change act, we defended the switch by saying, “Take twins to see Comedy of Errors, and what do you expect would happen?”  The general consensus among the ladies was that the unwitting gentlemen asked for it.

Kelly Joe Phelps comes to Ashland!


Kelly Joe Phelps — extraordinary Bluesman, Slide Guitarist

Kelly Joe Phelps

Kelly Joe Phelps

A writer at the San Diego Troubadour described guitarist and songwriter Kelly Joe Phelps as, “The Phantom Monk Of Folk– Blues,” and rightly so.

Over the past 17 years of recording and touring, Phelps has been talked about as much for his passionate, spirit-driven, lone musical ways as for the inventiveness of his playing and singing.

Listen to a song and then you’ll know you have to come.

Saturday, October 26, 2013 • 8pm
Tickets: $20/advance, $22/door, $10/teens 12–17,
children under 12 are free with paying adult.
