James Gordon: The Emergency Climate Musical
Advance $20 / Door $25*
James Gordon has had a remarkably diverse 40-year career in the Canadian entertainment business. As a solo singer-songwriter and with the ground-breaking trio Tamarack, he has released over forty albums and has toured relentlessly around the world. Gordon has written for symphony orchestras, musical theatre and dance works, film scores, and for more than ten years was heard on CBC radio as songwriter-in-residence for the ‘Basic Black’ and ‘Ontario Morning’ programs.
His song ‘Mining For Gold’ was featured in the John Sayles film ‘Silver City’, and was included on the classic Cowboy Junkies album ‘The Trinity Sessions’. Gordon’s classic ‘Frobisher Bay’ has been recorded by more than 100 different acts worldwide, has become a standard in choirs everywhere, and is in ‘Rise Again’, the sequel to the legendary ‘Rise Up Singing’ songbook. Well known for his songs about social justice, heritage and environmental issues, he toured for two years with his hugely successful political theatre piece ‘Stephen Harper: The Musical’. The full-length folk-opera ‘Hardscrabble Road’ debuted live in the fall of 2003 and proved to be one of his most ambitious works. Gordon has produced CDs for many Canadian folk artists, and his popular ‘Rhyme Capsules’ songwriting-in-the-schools project (through which he has facilitated over 1500 songwriting workshops) has resulted in over two dozen CDs of songs by young composers. He has recently toured in Great Britain, Cambodia, Vietnam, Japan, and all across North America. He’s often touring as James Gordon & Sons with his musician sons Evan and Geordie.
