    — John Gorka —



    Rising from the 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.

    For over two decades, Gorka’s keen ear has picked up the stories of those along his path, folding them into poetry and song. His keen perceptiveness inspires people from all over the world to share their stories. By involving those tales in his music, he escapes the trap of introspection that hobbles less gifted singer-songwriters.

    John Gorka flies below the pop culture radar with an almost cult-like following that never fails to fill concerts. Speak with any of his fans and one instantly feels their enthusiasm and genuine affection. His shy, almost self-effacing stage presence rightfully focuses attention on the songs. His versatility on guitar and piano keeps his sets musically interesting, while his rich baritone effortlessly executes his bidding. And he’s never short of the sly comment or clever joke that invariably ignites his audience.

    With his uncanny ability to work every nuance of language, capturing a wide array of topics and experiences woven into memorable melodies, John Gorka’s career continues to prosper and to garner ever-increasing attention.

    “One can get goosebumps all over. There are many reasons: fresh lyrics, a stunning emotional baritone, and his twisted humor” New York Times.

    The Folk Music Society of Huntington’s monthly Folk Jam/Song Circle/Sing-Along affords musicians and singers of all experience levels an opportunity to play, sing and hone their performance skills. Extending from 1-4 p.m. one Sunday each month at the South Huntington Public Library (145 Pidgeon Hill Road, Huntington Station), the Folk Jams are completely acoustic, unplugged events attended primarily by amateur musicians and those who love to sing. Visitors who just want to listen are also welcome. Song selections range across the broad folk milieu, but are often taken from the "Rise Up Singing" or the new “Rise Again” songbooks. Admission is free and open to the public. Participants are asked to bring their voices, acoustic instruments, and a snack/non-alcoholic beverage to share.

    The library staff has asked us to stress that amplifiers are NOT permitted at these jams.

    Attendees are also encouraged to visit the Folk Music Society of Huntington’s website at www.fmsh.org for information about our Thursday night and Saturday night concerts. We would love to see you at these concerts.

    The Everly Set: Noted NYC-based singer-songwriters Sean Altman & Jack Skuller pay tribute to their rock heroes, The Everly Brothers, in a show that takes you back to 1957 when teenagers Phil and Don Everly first burst on the scene and supercharged the vocal sound of rock’n’roll with sparkling harmonies that influenced The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, The Hollies, and The Bee Gees. Come and sing along to such hit songs as “Bye Bye Love,” “Cathy’s Clown,” “Wake Up Little Susie,” “All I Have To Do Is Dream,” “When Will I Be Loved,” “Crying In The Rain,” “Till I Kiss You,” “Love Hurts,” “Bird Dog,” “Claudette,” “Let It Be Me,” and more Everly (and Everly-influenced) classics from the late 1950s through the 1980s.

    Blessed with a silky tenor voice that produced chills (The New York Times), Altman is widely viewed as the father of modern a capella. He co-founded and led Rockapella on the Emmy Award-winning PBS-TV series Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?, for which he co-wrote the theme song. Altman also currently sings a cappella with The GrooveBarbers and Doowopera, original pop songs on guitar as a solo artist, and original comedy songs as JEWMONGOUS.

    Skuller is a recipient of the Holly Prize, an award made possible by the Songwriters Hall of Fame as a tribute to the legacy of Buddy Holly. A writer for The Deli Magazine referred to him as a teen idol in the wrong era, noting that Buddy Holly would be proud. Skuller has performed his original music around the country with Radio Disney. He has also been a regular performer with the acclaimed Losers Lounge tribute series at Joe’s Pub in NYC.
