“With a tangle of songs that emotionally connect us all and leave a tender trace, John Gorka stimulates the cerebrum, keeps our smiles agile and fit and reconnects us with what really matters most in music: honesty.” ~ Brian Dambrosio, The Huffington Post

From New Jersey, John Gorka is a world-renowned singer-songwriter who got his start in the late 1970’s at a neighborhood coffeehouse. He soon found himself living in the club’s basement and acting as MC and sound man, encountering legendary folk troubadours like Stan Rogers, Eric Andersen, and Tom Paxton. Their brand of folk-inspired acoustic music inspired him, and before long he was performing his own songs. Folk meccas like the Kerrville Folk Festival (where he won the New Folk Award in 1984) followed, and his stunningly soulful baritone voice and original songwriting began turning heads.

In 1987 Red House Records caught wind of John’s talents and released his first album, I Know, to popular and critical acclaim. Windham Hill’s High Street label released five more recordings over the next seven years. Since returning to Red House in 1998, Gorka has recorded six more solo albums with backing work from folks like Ani DiFranco, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Lucy Kaplansky and Patty Larkin. His latest, Bright Side of Down, was released in March 2014. John has also joined Kaplansky and Eliza Gilkyson under the band name Red Horse, releasing an album in 2010. Getting high praise from critics and fans alike, it was one of the most played albums on folk radio. A collector’s edition DVD/CD box set called The Gypsy Life, plus a Windham Hill retrospective called Pure John Gorka rounds out a most impressive discography.

Gorka’s songs, full of depth, beauty and emotion, have gained attention from critics and audiences across the continent as well as in Europe where tours have taken him to Italy, Belgium, Scotland, Ireland, Holland, Switzerland, and Germany. He also shared tours with many notable friends like Nanci Griffith and Mary Chapin Carpenter. John has graced the stage of PBS’s Austin City Limits, NPR’s Mountain Stage, etown and has appeared on CNN.

“Joe Crookston is decidedly one of today’s standout troubadours” - Roots Music Examiner

Born and raised in rural Ohio, Joe Crookston makes his home in Ithaca, New York. Whether it’s his hypnotic guitar sound, bubbling banjo, wailing fiddle, or his gripping short story lyrics, his music draws from his urban adventures and rural roots, exuding a remarkable timeless quality. A gifted songwriter, Joe also incorporates a great respect for traditional music into his performances.

His first label album, Fall Down as the Rain, was named “Best Folk Recording” by Seattle’s KBCS radio, and was selected by Performing Songwriter Magazine as one of 2004′s top 12 self-produced independent recordings. The title song stayed near the top of the Folk DJ Charts for 2006, and was recently recorded by Kitchener’s Al Parrish. It has become one of the most popular songs ever at The Old Chestnuts Song Circle.

In 2007, Crookston received a Rockefeller Foundation grant for a project called “Songs of the Finger Lakes”. Emulating Woody Guthrie, he spent a year traveling in the Finger Lakes region of New York state, collecting stories to turn into songs. Also in 2007, audiences at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (New York) selected him as one of the artists they most wanted to return the following year, leading to a 23-concert tour in the northeastern U.S. with venues including the Kennedy Center.

His second CD, Able Baker Charlie & Dog was awarded “Album of the Year” by the International Folk Alliance, receiving more radio airplay than any other folk album released in 2008. This was followed in 2010 by Darkling & The Bluebird Jubilee, which likewise garnered rave reviews. “Listeners will walk away from this album … with a sense of musical wonder, as well as a sense that one has just experienced something rather profound”, wrote examiner.com. It has been added to my own personal list of all-time favourite albums. Georgia I’m Here (2014) includes a re-take on Fall Down as the Rain, plus 9 other original songs, a cover, and the traditional song Pretty Saro.

Through his spirit and playfulness and his unwavering courage to be himself, you will be moved in ways you didn’t expect. He is literate, poignant and funny as hell. Joe made his Canadian debut for us in September of 2012, and it’s a very great pleasure to have him back at The Registry.
