John Gorka

It's that season again- the season of Christmas decorations, Menorahs and year end Best-of lists. Fan that I am of lists, I can't help but offer my choices for the best of 2014.  Here they are, in no particular order:

'Bright Side Of Down' is John Gorka's 1st record in 4 years, and it was well worth the wait.  First coming to prominence in the "new folk" boom of the early 80's, (he won the Kerrville New Folk award in 1984) Gorka is well-known for his beautifully crafted, insightful, wry and honest songs.  We have the opportunity to preview this record all week on High Plains Morning before it's official release on March 4.  Tune in!
