Gorka to headline opera house

VERGENNES-The Vergennes Opera House is proud to bring singer-songwriter John Gorka's distinctive and rich baritone voice and contemporary folk-inspired music to our stage on Friday, May 13, at 7:30 p.m.

Gorka got his start in the basement of Godfrey Daniels, one of the oldest and most venerable music institutions in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania. His albums and extensive touring over the past 15 years have brought him continued accolades, with Rolling Stone magazine calling him "the preeminent male singer/songwriter of the new folk movement."

Opening for Gorka will be award-winning songwriter Meg Hutchinson, who artfully documents the human condition through her unique vocals and haunting melodies.

Hutchinson is a lyric-based, contemporary acoustic songwriter. Originally from rural western-most Massachusetts, she is now based in the Boston area. She has won numerous songwriting awards in the U.S., Ireland and U.K.

Tickets are $25 and are available at the Opera House, Classic Stitching in Vergennes, and online at www.brownpapertickets.com. Seating is General Admission.

Doors will open at 7 p.m. For more information contact 802-877-6737 or info@vergennesoperahouse.org.
