John Gorka returns June 8
May 25, 2019
Mention John Gorka to anyone who has heard him and the response is immediate: "Where and when is he playing and how do I get a ticket?!"
The short answer is: Fiddlers Crossing, Saturday, June 8, at 7 p.m. This will be Gorka's second appearance at the downtown venue, the first being back in 2014.
Among the acoustic singer-songwriters, Gorka is generally considered to be one of the brightest stars. His songs have been covered by Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith, Mary Black, Bill Morrissey and Suzanne Vega, among many others, and performed at Open Mic nights by many an aspiring musician. Whether it's a song about the, "Land of the Bottom Line," "Italian Girls," or one sung from the point of view of a tree, Gorka offers wry, slice-of-life observations that put his college major in philosophy to good use.
Fiddlers Crossing is at 206 E. F St. at Robinson St. in Downtown Tehachapi. Tickets may be purchased at Mountain Music, Tehachapi Treasure Trove, Tehachapi Furniture in Old Town and Lucky's Barber Shop. Tickets may be reserved by calling (661) 823-9994. Tickets to the concert are $25, and as always, coffee and goodies are included. The concert begins at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
On the horizon: Ticket To Ride (Beatles tribute band), as part of the "Concerts in the Park" series, in association with TVRPD, The Kick Stomp Ensemble, Phil Salazar and the Kinfolk (Concerts in the Park).
