HI EVERYONE,

After 14 critically acclaimed albums, countless national and international tours, collaborations with the likes of Nanci Griffith, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Ani DiFranco,Lucy Kaplansky, Patty Larkin, and many more, John Gorka is coming to the Freshwater stage on June 1st . He played Freshwater in 2017 to a standing room only crowd. We have had countless request to bring him back. John is bringing special guest, Lynn Miles, to open the show.

"As director of The Ark acoustic music club in Ann Arbor for forty years from 1968 to 2008, I presented literally thousands of performers, including many wonderful singer-songwriters whose music I now cherish. Of all of these, I find myself listening to the music of Lynn Miles more than that of any other performer who played the club. Her melodies are stunning and I think many of her lyrics are absolute poetry capable of standing alone. If you love good music and have never really listened to her, you owe it to yourself to do so soon. The point of my writing this is that I can easily say Lynn Miles ranks as my favorite singer-songwriter to have ever played The Ark during my tenure over the last forty years. Flat out my favorite." - DAVE SIGLIN

THIS WILL BE A SPECIAL SHOW, IT BRINGS SEASON 10 TO A CLOSE.
