On July 18th, Gordon performed a 25 minute set at Chuck Whiting’s Tunesmithing songwriters show . It was a wonderful night of great songs and performances, including great responses to each of Gordon’s songs. Thanks, to all who came out to support the writers.
Gordon performed eleven of his songs at the CSLN Yard Sale on Saturday, June 28th, 2014, and was joined on a few of them by singer J. Karen Thomas. Gordon also backed up J. Karen on guitar and vocals on several songs.
Chuck Whiting’s Tunesmithing show has found a new home, and is resuming on Wednesday, July 16th. Gordon has been re-booked to perform that evening, along with 4 other writers to be determined, each doing a 25 minute set. While Gordon’s time slot is not set yet, the show runs from 7 to approximately 9:30–come out and support all the writers, if you can–Chuck always has a great lineup. The new location is the ALOFT HOTEL, 1719 West End Ave (Formerly Hotel Indigo).
Gordon’s performance at Tunesmithing will not be taking place on June 17th, due to the fact that Tunesmithing is looking for a new venue for its writers shows. Tunesmithing hopes to resume in the fall, and Gordon will be worked back into the rotation. Stay tuned.

A note from Gordon:
“Hi Y’All! It’s been a while since I was part of a performance in the round, but I am honored to have been invited to join Laurie O’Shea, Annie Sims and Bill Warrington in the round at a new place called VENUE 109 next Friday, 2/22/13. We go on at 9 P.M. and it looks like we will be playing until 10:30, which is a nice chunk of time for rounds these days.
Many of you know Laurie, who was just featured at the Co-Creators’ Coffeehouse, along with her husband Sean a couple of weeks ago. Her songs range from heartfelt to whimsical, and are frequently quite insightful. Annie, of course is the Music Director at Music City Center for Spiritual Living, and has some beautiful, uplifting material. If you’ve ever heard “Everything Everywhere”, you know what I am talking about. And Bill is a dynamic performer with a wide spectrum of songs ranging from funny to poignant. It should be a great night, and what will make it even better, is if you can attend. And thank you Laurie for inviting me. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or Laurie–one of us should know the answers. Hope to see you there.”
Gordon will once again be the Featured Performer at the Co-Creators’ Coffeehouse on Friday, May 4th, celebrating the 13th Anniversary of this event.
