John Gorka, who noted, “Life is not fair; love is not enough… but it is the only thing worth pursuing,” will perform at Friday Night Folk, 19 Jay Street in New London at 7:30 on October 19. His songs, rich with depth, beauty and emotion, have gained attention across Europe as well as the United States. Rolling Stone describes him as “the preeminent male singer songwriter of the new folk movement,” while the Boston Globe says, “Gorka is widely heralded for the sophisticated intelligence and provocative originality of his songs.”
Gorka’s soulful baritone and compelling songwriting turn heads. A score of artists have recorded and performed his songs, including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Mary Black and Maura O’Connell. Recently Gorka has performed with Eliza Gilkyson and Lucy Kaplansky as “Red Horse”. He also sings with Antje Duvekot and Christine Lavin, whom you may remember from the Friday Night Folk stage.
