The Cultural Center proudly presents a solo concert with John Gorka, a performer that Rolling Stone has called “the preeminent male singer-songwriter of the New Folk Movement.”  Rising from a milieu of lovelorn singer-songwriters, John Gorka illuminates instead with his trademark wordplay, twisting, turning, and tying words and phrases in the way a balloon artist creates complex creatures from simple balloons. Few contemporary songwriters coax language as deftly as Gorka. “Listening to John Gorka sing, one can get goose bumps all over. There are many reasons: fresh lyrics, a stunning emotional baritone, and his twisted humor,” said the New York Times. Reserved seating $35/$32/$20. Cultural Center Membership discounts and complimentary tickets will apply. For details, call 541-994-9994.
