The Washington Post has called David Gordon "an irresistable performer." He's a life-long troubadour whose compelling voice, keen sense of drama, and wacky wit have charmed audiences worldwide for more than 40 years. David's international performing and recording career reaches from Bach to bluegrass, from grand opera to jazz, from Mozart to songs of the Oregon Trail.

"Singing My Heart Out" is an eclectic and thought-provoking one-man show of songs and stories about slavery, poverty, Mexican farm workers, the Great Depression, nuclear bombs, the Iraq war, The Wall, compassion, courage, trust, hope, and how to believe in the future. There will be tears but there also will be consolation and laughter.

The playlist spans more than 150 years and includes songs by Stephen Foster, Woody Guthrie, Yip Harburg, Fred Hellerman, Si Kahn, John Flynn, David Wilcox, Tom Waits, Louise Mosrie, Robbie O'Donnell, Ana´s Mitchell, and more.

First performance, Oct 7 in Carmel, California. Buy tickets here now.
