John Gorka is an international folk music artist with a devoted following and numerous collaborations with fellow entertainers. His last visit to Festival Theatre was in 2013 with the trio called Red Horse, comprised of Gorka, Lucy Kaplansky, and Eliza Gilkyson.
Since then, he has released a new CD with Red House Records, a studio album called “Bright Side of Down.” The album’s 12 songs are beautifully produced and sequenced from beginning to end. With guest vocal appearances by Red House labelmates Kaplansky, Gilkyson, Claudia Schmidt and Michael Johnson, the collection resonates with the classic, “Gorka-esque” sound and lyrical insight that’s earned him generations of devoted fans and a career that’s found him gracing the stages of PBS’ Austin City Limits, NPR’s Mountain Stage and venues worldwide.
