Coast Community Radio presents
One man on stage with a guitar can change the world. That's the way it is with world-renowned singer-songwriter John Gorka, who's been stopping audiences in their tracks with his magical take on contemporary folk music since the 1980s.
Join Coast Community Radio in welcoming Gorka to the Liberty Theater in Astoria March 6, 2015 for a memorable evening of music – and his only Oregon appearance in 2015.
Gorka's iconic ballads on life, love and flying horses will touch your heart and soul, make you rethink your assumptions about how things are. His multifaceted songs are full of depth, beauty and emotion. Rolling Stone magazine called him "the preeminent male singer-songwriter of what has been dubbed the New Folk Movement."
Many well known artists have recorded and performed John Gorka's works, including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith, Mary Black and Maura O’Connell. John has graced the stage of Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, Etown, and has appeared on CNN. His new song, “Where No Monuments Stand” is featured in the upcoming documentary Every War Has Two Losers, about activist and Oregon Poet Laureate William Stafford (1914-1993).
Coast Community Radio listeners often hear Gorka's music on KMUN Astoria 91.9 and KTCB Tillamook 89.5 FM. Seeing him live is another thing entirely – Gorka is as kind and thoughtful in person as he is in song.
The Liberty's blend of great acoustics and intimate surroundings are the perfect setting for this music legend. So be there with us on March 6 for an evening you won't forget.
Tickets $25, $20 and $15 available through TicketsWest.com and by calling The Liberty Theater box office Tuesday – Saturday 2:00pm – 5:30pm and two hours before the show.
All proceeds go to Coast Community Radio.
