Pioneer History in
Story & Song 
David Gordon


Northwest Troubadour David Gordon has concluded another sold out season!  Look for him again in 2020 when we’ll be offering more “Pioneer History in Story & Song”!

David’s themes feature 8 to 10 songs originally popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  Each monthly 1-hour program will be offered twice each concert day, at 1:30 and 3:00 pm in the Naversen Room of the Jacksonville Library.   David’s narration interweaves the songs, gives them historical context, and helps us connect with them and our heritage.

Concerts are $5 per person (cash or check), with proceeds going to local history programs and preservation projects.  Due to the popularity of David’s performances and the intimacy of the Naversen Room venue, we do request reservations to be sure seating is available.  Reservations can be made by calling 541-245-3650 or e-mailing

David Gordon has been described by The Washington Post as “an irresistible performer,” weaving a soothing musical tapestry of songs, irresistible vocals, gentle guitar stylings, stories, musings, and his own unique brand of goofy humor. After a 40+ year career as an internationally acclaimed Bach tenor, David is now a resident of Jacksonville and exploring his musical roots as singer, guitarist, historian, and story teller.

David’s performances are intimate, casual, fun, and filled with memorable music and fascinating historical background. His combination of colorful music and true stories ignites the imagination, and brings life to history.
