Pioneer History in Story & Song

Thank you, David Gordon, for another great season of “Pioneer History in Story & Song”!  Through this year’s tales and tunes you continued to give us a unique, entertaining, and sometimes eye-opening approach to the music of Stephen Foster, the gold rush, the Oregon Trail and 19th Century history. 

We are all looking forward to your 2019 Northwest Troubadour season when you again interweave songs originally popular in the mid-1800s with narration that gives them historical context, and helps us to connect with them and our pioneer heritage.

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, this series represents a return to David’s musical roots.

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.
