Concerts for a Cause, hosted by Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick, will present John Gorka at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 2, at the church at 1 Middle St. in Brunswick.

Gorka, a contemporary American folk musician from Minnesota, is widely heralded for the sophisticated intelligence and provocative originality of his songs.

He was inspired to become a folk musician in the early ’80s, while working (and living) in a coffeehouse frequented by artists who were at the heart of the ’60s folk revival. Godfrey Daniels, a club in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania became Gorka’s folk classroom, as artists such as Tom Paxton and Stan Rogers crossed its stage, performing intimate acoustic music.

He generally mixes in a few songs by other songwriters, and maybe a cover or two of a familiar song, but it is his original songs that really stand out.

Tickets will cost $22 in advance or $25 at the door. $10 for students/children.
