Review: Gordon Bok on Tour

Gordon Bok paid a rare visit to the NYC area (well, within 60 miles) on Sunday, preforming in a sold-out concert this past Sunday for the Friend of Fiddlers Green chapter of the Hudson Valley Folk Guild in Poughkeepsie. He was fabulous. He inspired me, and I'll never again worry about forgetting the words to songs while on stage.

He was brilliant in Portland Maine last week. Do not miss a chance to see/hear him perform.

It's been almost a year since our one chance to see Gordon perform, in Flint, MI.; I haven't begun to forget how much we enjoyed him.

He was wonderful at Stone Soup a few months ago.

Normally I go to the Working Waterfront Festival in New Bedford, MA, but that won't be possible this year.For those who have never been, you should know that it is FREE! The New London, CT, concert would normally be doable for me--but not this year. I am so glad I got to hear him at Stone Soup.

He and his wife captivated the Bodmin Folk club last Friday

The voice was sublime and the Paraguayan harp playing was moving

Their offering of Malvina Reynold's song 'Quiet' was very much appreciated. i had not previously heard it. beautifully sung.

We who were present were absolutely captivated and wish them well


Three days earlier Gordon was also seen playing out on Padstow harbour where he rendered 'Maggie in the Wood' and was almost nicked by a patrolling bobby, no thanks to one Mike O'Connor the likes of whom you should never trust.

Oh and Martyn Wyndham-Read had some thing to do with it and I believe it was Danni's birthday treat, from him.

I felt it had been a magical moment to have met and heard Gordon Bok sing and play. a gentleman of music.

I'm glad to read your post, breezy. It's always a pleasure to hear them; I'm delighted you had such a rich crossing of paths.

Maeve, in Maine

PS Kindly send them home soon.

Breezy - I'm not surprised that Mike was hyper. These two have been corresponding for quite a while and finally got the chance to meet. I think that it would have been quite an event for both of them.
