New Folk stalwart John Gorka plays Unison in New Paltz

New Folk stalwart John Gorka graces the intimate space of Unison Arts in New Paltz on Saturday, September 28. The New Jersey native has been making finely wrought, sensitive-but-deceptively-edgy folk music since his 1987’s critically lauded debut I Know. Some 30 years and 15 records later, Gorka released True in Time in 2018: a live-in-studio collection of pithy and concise songs that aim right for the heart. “Gorka is widely heralded for the sophisticated intelligence and provocative originality of his songs,” wrote the Boston Globe. Tickets for this big booking cost $25 general admission, $10 for students, with discounts for Unison members.

John Gorka, Saturday, Sept. 28, 8 p.m., $25/$10, Unison Arts Center, 68 Mountain Rest Rd., New Paltz, (845) 255-1559,
