A John Gorka concert presents a difficult quandry: Do you go to listen to a wonderful folk singer or do you go to listen to an incredible song writer?
Try a left-brain, right-brain trick and hear the wonderful music and original lyrics as Gorka fills the Bryant Intermediate School Auditorium Saturday night.Gorka has appeared in Salt Lake City at Cinema in Your Face and then at the University of Utah's Museum of Fine Arts Auditorium. His local audience is steadily building. With a new "Land of the Bottom Line" album just out on the Windham Hill label to add to his debut album, "I Know" on Red House records, Gorka has just about been mainstreamed. But his unique and beautiful songs will always be identifiable as his.
The Sept. 29 concert at Bryant School, 40 S. 800 East, begins at 7 p.m. Patty Larkin, who recently appeared with Christine Lavin, Sally Fingerett and Megon McDonough, will open for Gorka.
Tickets are $8 in advance, $9 at the door and are expected to sell out. Tickets can be purchased at Acoustic Music, Great Salt Lake Guitar in Provo, Intermountain Guitar and Banjo, Smokey's Records, Gypsy Moon Emporium, and Wild Rose and Music Village in Ogden.
