John Gorka in Concert @ Williamsburg Regional Library | Williamsburg | Virginia | United States

Rolling Stone calls him, “The leading singer/songwriter of the New Folk movement.”  John Gorka’s solid reputation rests on the great warmth of his mellow baritone and his live performances.  Hear John Gorka on Friday, June 22 at 7:30 when he returns to the Williamsburg Library Theatre, 515 Scotland St., as part of the Dewey Decibel Concert Series. Call 259-4070 to reserve tickets and visit wrl.org to see videos of John.  John Gorka’s songs are evocatively beautiful. There’s an attractive intimacy not only in the small moments of which he sings, but also in the sincere way in which he presents them.  John’s hummable acoustic music accompanies themes reflecting his troubadour’s heart: freedom, faith, the environment and social justice.  Gorka’s forté is his lyrics; the wordplay makes you think while you’re tapping your feet.  He sings about clever, slice of life situations and creates snapshot stories grounded in both poetry and reality.
