There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see." -- Ann Patchett in Bel Canto.

His kids lean towards Country music and Rock and whatever friends are into on the ipods they won't be joining John in Italy next week where he plays festivals with Michael Manring who got him the gigs...

An abridged version of Ignorance and Privelege as about halfway thru John lost the flow, got lost in a Hank Senior Moment kinda way... :P

On to talk of the Pirogi recipe up on the website it's an old family recipe from his father's side and maybe his sister's he thinks it's okay with them that it's up there. It's also included in a cookbook Austin City Limits put out with recipes from artists that had played the show. He made some last week for his wife and they came out good, adding that it's all about the dough, and the humidity helped them roll right out!

Finished up with a Utah Phillips song and promises a full version of Ignorance and Privelege tonight at Me and Thee. Lastly, just love the way John talks about his history by mentioning by name the place in Bethlehem Pa that afforded him early opportunity.....8)

JG was asked about FB & agreed it was a great way to keep fans up to date -- also touched on the time consuming aspect of facebook.

I was perusing Facebook today (an addiction, really) when across the screen came the news that James Arness died today. Faster than Marshall Dillon could draw his pistol on an outlaw this song came to mind.

Paddy,

Thanks for the link above which I just saw today for the first time. You posted it while I was at Kerrville, so I guess that's why I missed it. As a HUGE fan of Gunsmoke, I was saddened to hear the news of James Arness' passing that day.....which ironically was passed on to me by EP.

John Gorka will appear on WUMB's Live At Noon this Friday, July 29, 2011.
