John Gorka at The Iron Horse Music Hall
Iron Horse Entertainment/IHEG – Doors at 5:30pm. An Iron Horse fixture and favorite. From New Jersey, John Gorka is a world-renowned singer-songwriter who got his start at a neighborhood coffeehouse in eastern Pennsylvania. Traveling to New York City, Jack Hardy's legendary Fast Folk circle (a breeding ground for many a major singer-songwriter) became a powerful source of education and encouragement. Folk meccas like Texas' Kerrville Folk Festival (where he won the New Folk Award in 1984) and Boston followed, and his stunningly soulful baritone voice and original songwriting began turning heads. Those who had at one time inspired him - Suzanne Vega, Bill Morrissey, Nanci Griffith, Christine Lavin, Shawn Colvin - had become his peers . For his latest album, Gorka presents his fans with an opportunity to hear a sort of parallel-universe version of his first album, 1987's "I Know," with his most recent release, "Before Beginning: the Unreleased 'I Know,' " which is actually the debut he recorded before his actual debut. Basically, here's the deal: Gorka went in the studio in 1985 to make his first record for Red House, and it came out sounding good but not the way Gorka wanted. Eventually, he got it right, and these songs were released in stripped-back versions that sounded more like the ones in Gorka's head.

Ben Sollee & Kentucky Native at The Iron Horse Music Hall
Iron Horse Entertainment/IHEG – Nashville, TN – Acclaimed cellist, composer, songwriter and activist Ben Sollee announces the release of Ben Sollee And Kentucky Native (Soundly Music) on August 11th, 2017. Tracing the origins of a traditional American genre back to early immigrants, Sollee takes a non-traditional approach, blending the influences of early Irish and Scottish musicians with the rhythms of Mexico, Africa, and India. This album is Sollee’s most personally revealing work and a reflection of his native Kentucky, a place like many others, that’s still helping refine the ever-changing Bluegrass genre.Inspired by the interactions and collaborations of string musicians from all walks of life, Sollee and his bandmates recorded twelve songs in a cabin at the Bernheim Arboretum And Research Forest Center in Clermont, KY. Each song was captured live as an ensemble with a mobile, analog studio and with just a few overdubs. Together, they thoughtfully reimagined a revered style with world music characteristics.

Masala Jazz at The Bistro at Gateway City Arts
Gateway City Arts – Join us for delicous food, tasty drinks, and exceptional music. Our weekly Beergarden music series continues with Masala Jazz starting at 7pm. MASALA is a term used in Asian cuisines to mostly describe a combination of wonderful spices. Not unlike the mixture of the many spices in Indian cooking, Masala Jazz is a mixture of many musicians and a fusion of musical expressions with a foundation in jazz and blues. SiriNam Singh Khalsa, the bands leader and originator wanted Masala to reflect family and the enjoyment of playing music. SiriNam’s three decades of guitar playing was described in a Daily Hampshire Gazette Arts and Entertainment article as “a clean and melodic sound influenced by musicians such as Pat Matheny and Larry Carlton.” Menu can be previewed at gatewaycityartsbistro.com
