The Island Now

Singer-songwriter John Gorka will perform at the Folk Music Society of Huntington’s First Saturday Concerts series on Saturday, Dec. 3 at 8:30 p.m. at the Congregational Church of Huntington. 

Now in its 48th year, the Folk Music Society of Huntington presents two monthly concert series, a monthly folk jam, and an annual folk festival in conjunction with the Huntington Arts Council, according to a press release from the Folk Music Society of Huntington.

Since emerging three decades ago as a winner of the Kerrville New Folk Competition in the Texas Hill country, Gorka has been writing personal songs with a touch of humor.

Born in New Jersey and now a Minnesota resident, Gorka is a baritone singer, and has recorded and released 13 albums.

The concert will be preceded by an open mic at 7:30 p.m., and the church is located at 30 Washington Drive, off Route 25A in Centerport.
