David Gordon first strummed a guitar in 1959, and he’s been learning songs ever since. Lots and lots of songs. Now, after six decades of singing for audiences, he’s created a personal retrospective of his favorite and most comforting songs.


The playlist includes music by Lennon & McCartney, Tom Paxton, Kate Wolf, John McCutcheon, David Wilcox, Jacques Offenbach, Hoagy Carmichael, Stephen Foster, Iris DeMent, a medieval French troubadour, and a few more.

In his concerts with guitar David draws on his lifelong love of traditional and contemporary acoustic music. With a rich and sensitive voice and a keen sense of drama, he interweaves songs of love and laughter with stories, musings, and his own uniquely goofy brand of humor.

Throughout his life, Davidís intention has been to open hearts through song and story, and share with his listeners the power of words and music and the joys of living and love.

Some of the songs on this audio playlist and in these live videos are from this program
