After two seasons and 20 sold-out concerts in Oregon, David Gordon is bringing his pioneer era series to the Monterey Bay for one concert only. David's music and history series focuses exclusively on songs popular west of the Mississippi between 1845 and 1875: the songs sung by emigrants on the Oregon Trail, miners in California, soldiers in the Civil War, western settlers, city dwellers, and many more.
The music ranges from rustic to refined, and David interweaves it with historical anecdotes and background. This combination of story and song ignites the imagination and brings life to history. Audio Samples
For his pioneer era series, David has researched, arranged, and performed nearly eighty mid-19th-century songs, and for the October 1 concert in Pebble Beach he is singing his favorites, including several by the great American songwriter Stephen Foster. Program Details
This is David's only concert in the Monterey area this fall and it's the first opportunity for local audiences to hear a sample of his popular Northwest Troubadour song and story series.
