John Gorka in Ashland March 6


John Gorka, Singer/Songwriter and Antje Duvekot opening

St. Claire Eclectic Music Concert Series presents John Gorka.

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.”

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.
