John Gorka, Eliza Gilkyson, Lucy Kaplansky, Nina Gerber, at Sierra Nevada Brewery's Big Room, Chico, Calif., Nov. 22, 2010

A trio of wonderful singer-songwriters, Eliza Gilkyson, John Gorka, and Lucy Kaplansky, all firmly established nationally as solo artists, came through Chico to play at the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.'s Big Room on Nov. 22, 2010 for the last show of a short tour. Each musician led their own songs and covered each other's songs as well. The encore cover versions of "Wayfaring Stranger" (Lucy on lead vocals) and "People Get Ready" (John) were especially lovely. Renowned Bay Area guitarist Nina Gerber accompanied the trio throughout with just enough electric guitar to turn up the energy a notch without losing the intimacy that the three acoustic players brought to the stage. I'm going to steal a little from Red House Records' description of the Gorka/Gilkyson/Kaplansky collaboration as described for their album, "Red Horse." The words apply to the concert as well as the record. "Inspiring and paving the road for countless musicians and songwriters on the road today, having these three talents converge on one record is a folk fan's dream album. 'Red Horse's' sparse instrumentation allows these three distinctive voices to carry the magic of the music that is awash in great harmonies and songwriting."
