John Gorka at McCabe's


FRI FEB 24 / 8:00 PM / $25 Call Us

Singer songwriter Gorka, whose rich baritone and poignant wordplay
have made him a favorite at McCabe’s since his first performance here
in early 1990s. Emerging from the same Greenwich Village scene that
produced Suzanne Vega and Shawn Colvin, Gorka has quietly built a 30
plus year career with 11 critically acclaimed albums, the successful
side project Red Horse with Lucy Kaplansky and Eliza Gilkyson, and a
collection of songs recorded by the likes of Mary Chapin Carpenter,
Nanci Griffith, Mary Black and Maura O’Connell. The soft spoken
Gorka’s intimate evenings of song always captivate (and sell out). See
you here.

Overused though the term may be, “living legend” only begins to
describe composer, musical director, and guitarist Albert Lee. A
five-time winner of Guitar Player’s “Best Country Guitarist” award,
“Mr. Telecaster” has played with an endless list of greats, including
Bo Diddley, The Everly Brothers, Ricky Skaggs, Jackson Browne, John
Prine, and Rosanne Cash. Eric Clapton called him “the greatest
guitarist in the world,” and Emmylou Harris says he is “a brilliant
guitar player. His sound is unmistakable — often emulated, never
equaled. When St. Peter asks me to chronicle my time down here on
earth, I’ll be able to say (with pride if that’s allowed) that for a
while I played rhythm guitar in a band with Albert Lee.”

Fingerstyle guitar innovator Adrian Legg stops by our back room for
another night of mind bending fretplay and inventive soundscapes.
Voted “Guitarist of the Decade” by Guitarist magazine, and Guitar
Player’s Reader’s Poll Winner for Best Acoustic Fingerstyle Guitarist
for 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996. Legg’s hybrid acoustic/electric style has
earned him legions of fans from players and audience alike. Sharing
the stage with acclaimed guitar experts Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson and
Steve Vai as part of the G3 tour, Satriani said of Legg’s musicianship
“He’s simply the best acoustic guitar player I’ve ever heard. I don’t
know anyone else who can create such a cascade of beautiful notes…
Adrian plays like he’s got hammers for fingers.”

Make no mistake, Mr. Dave is a sonic force to be reckoned with. Using an array of amplified stringed instruments (many of which, no one but he would amplify), Lindley creates grooves that are at once ethnic and ancient and flat-out rockin’. Throw in his priceless polyester wardrobe and the songs borne of his uniquely warped wit, and you’ve got a hell of a show. Saturday’s performance is sold out, but tickets are still available for Friday’s show!
