Come down to the Fairfield Theatre Company on December 9th to see John Gorka. John Gorka received his first guitar as a Christmas gift, though he alleges that his older brother stole it from him shortly thereafter. He eventually learned, instead, to play the banjo, and began performing in a folk music group at his church.

These included Nanci Griffith, Bill Morrissey, Claudia Schmidt and Jack Hardy.
