ShipSing Gordon Bok - Seattle - March 5 (23) Gordon Bok - Seattle - March 5 15 Feb 11


Gordon Bok with special guest Carol Rohl
Saturday, March 5 at 7:30 p.m.
Phinney Neighborhood Center Community Hall, 6532 Phinney Ave. N, Seattle, WA 98103

This concert is co-produced by Seattle Folklore Society and Northwest Seaport's Maritime Music Program.

Think of maritime music or the traditions of the Northeast, and Gordon Bok is at the top of the list. Gordon has written, sung, and helped to preserve the heritage of the working waterman of the Northeast. With over 30 albums, including his latest "Other Eyes," Gordon brings his rich and diverse repertoire to make each concert a unique experience. But his reach has far extended his native realm and has popularized the arts and cultures of other regions including Northwest songwriters and spanning the globe to Mongolian Kalmyk traditions.

Bok has always been an innovator. As a young man in Maine he was the first to bring the contradance tunes of Maine and New Brunswick into the folk guitar repertoire. He calls himself a "rememberer" a keeper of songs and stories and a keeper of tradition and ways of thinking that set us apart from others, yet confirm our pace in the flow of humanity.

Gordon will perform with special guest Carol Rohl. Carol plays traditional Scottish, Irish, and South American tunes, as well as contemporary folk music on a 34-string Triplett Celtic harp. With the strong traditions of Gordon and Carol, you'll be in for a terrific evening of acoustic entertainment.
