UU Coffeehouse 25th Anniversary Celebration with Gordon Bok

April 25, 2015, 7:00 PM

$20

Gordon Bok grew up around the boatyards of Camden, Maine. In his early years, he worked on a variety of vessels, from passenger schooners to yachts. He learned many tunes, sea songs, stories, legends and ballads from the people he worked with. Where he couldn’t find songs that matched his experiences or needs, he began to write his own, and has kept up a lively flow of poems, songs, stories, choral and instrumental works.

He has performed extensively in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. He has appeared on the radio show A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. Gordon received an honorary Doctorate of Science from the Maine Maritime Academy for his reflection of Maine’s maritime heritage in his compositions and performances.

His legacy includes over thirty recordings featuring his own compositions and folk tunes from around the world. His extensive repertoire provides a rich well to draw upon for his concerts; he has never sung the same solo concert twice.

The UU Coffeehouse is smoke and alcohol free, featuring mugs of gourmet coffee or tea and fresh baked snacks for your enjoyment. Come enjoy this cozy comfortable evening!
