“From her albums you can tell that she is a gifted songwriter with a beautiful voice. From other people's comments about her you can learn that she is a natural story teller with a fantastic sense of humor. But until you see her in person, you never really believe what you've been told about her. Besides, almost half of the songs she does during her shows haven't been recorded! Cheryl's songs are often emotional portraits of people, leaving you with the impression that you know the characters. You find yourself being dragged into the song rather than standing outside and observing. Other songs by Cheryl are hilarious situation comedies”

John is an honored icon of the folk tradition. Energetic acoustic music that is not a trend, not a fad, but an expression of everyday life, is his trademark. John's rich baritone voice and unique song craft weave a magical spell that can only be described as “Gorka”. For more than 3 decades this folk master has toured nationally and internationally, appeared on Austin City Limits and Mountain Stage, performed with Nanci Griffith and Mary Chapin Carpenter, had his songs recorded by numerous artists including Mary Black and Maura O'Connell, and created a multi-generational fan-base.
