Andy Irwin and John Gorka on Evening Star From Sautee Nacoochee on GPB On Stage Saturday at 8pm on GPB Radio and Online
Longtime Friend of GPB Andy Irwin's Southern childhood storytelling is the wise comedy fodder around the folk songs of John Gorka, dubbed by Rolling Stone "the pre-eminent male singer-songwriter of what's been dubbed the new folk movement." Join us Saturday, December 20 at 8pm right after A Prairie Home Companion for this performance, captured live as part of the Evening Star Concert Series at The Sautee-Nacoochee Center at the eponymous North Georgia Appalachian mountain valley crossroads. We hope you enjoy it.

Join us Saturday night at 8pm right after A Prairie Home Companion for The Mountain Music and Medicine Show, recorded live at the Historic Holly Theater in Dahlonega, Georgia. You'll hear plenty of old-time mountain music and a few jokes so old you'll have to blow the dust off of them. One of Rickey Bevington's favorite bands, Little Country Giants, will pick a few songs along with Bluegrass Alliance and the White Path Band. So give a listen and stay away from Doc Johnson's Wizard Water and you'll have a good time and hear some of the best of Appalachian mountain culture on GPB.
