At a time when folk music was experiencing a great revival, Gordon became a leader in preserving, collecting, creating and sharing a wide variety of rich and intensely beautiful songs of both land and sea. His mastery of both 6- and 12-string guitars added to his already well-developed vocal expression to create an unmistakable style that has carried him through decades of being one of our most cherished folk artists. He has made more that a score of albums, and many other musicians including Archie Fisher, Liam Clancy, and Tommy Makem have recorded his songs. In addition, his music has been used in films and published in folk music anthologies, including Rise Up Singing—and his own collections, Time and The Flying Snow and One To Sing, One To Haul.
In addition to performing in concert halls, coffeehouses and festivals throughout the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Scandinavia, New Zealand and Australia, Gordon has taught choral singing and song writing at summer music camps and other gatherings. He has organized choral groups in his own community and gladly shares his knowledge with others wishing to do the same. A superb storyteller, he often introduces songs in concert with a bit of their origin and history.
House Concerts build strong friendships between musicians, presenters, and listeners. Most importantly, House Concerts provide the most intimate and compelling performance environment available. – Darryl Purpose
