James Gordon – West Coast Mini-Tour

We are super pleased to once again be promoting the inimitable Canadian Folk icon, James Gordon.

A fixture of the Canadian folk scene for more than 30 years, James has had a remarkably diverse career… so far. As a solo singer-songwriter and with the ground-breaking trio Tamarack, he has released over thirty-five albums, and has toured relentlessly around the world. Gordon has written for symphony orchestras, musical theatre and dance works, film scores, and for more than ten years was heard on CBC radio as songwriter-in-residence for the ‘Basic Black” and “Ontario Morning” programs.

Well known for his songs about social justice, heritage and environmental issues, he toured for two years  with his hugely successful political theatre piece “Stephen Harper: The Musical”.  It worked. You’re welcome.

James is an engaging and charismatic performer… his connection with his audience is almost immediate, and it’s nearly impossible to leave a show without a song in your head and a smile on your face. His full, rich voice and thoughtful lyrics highlighted by accomplished musicianship demonstrate exactly why he has had such a long and fruitful career.

He tours as a solo performer and with his sons. In 2009 BerLen Music published the Pipe Street Songbook, an anthology of his 50 most loved songs. Between tours, James is a record producer, playwright, community activist, Guelph City Councillor and theatre director.

This October we welcome James back to the West Coast for a short tour of the lower mainland and southern gulf Islands, including Victoria.
