Advance tickets $25, day of show $30. “John Gorka is perhaps the quintessential iconic singer-songwriter of the 80’s folk scene. He launched his career in New Jersey, but forged his legacy in the Greenwich Village Fast Folk scene, where he honed his craft and persona into an unmistakable image. The shy, wry, insightful, sensitive singer-songwriter has been copied and parodied. But the old coat he wove still fits, and still suits him well. The old songs ring as true as they ever did, and the new ones are just as good.” Rolling Stone magazine calls him “the leading singer/songwriter of the New Folk movement” while “Gorka is widely heralded for the sophisticated intelligence and provocative originality of his songs,” says the Boston Globe.
