Pioneer History in
Story & Song 
David Gordon


It is with great regret that we announce that our favorite Northwest Troubadour is no longer available for public performances.

He is emulating the famous opera diva, Maria Callas, who did not retire and did not quit.  She merely “stopped.”  

However, David will be a featured performer on some upcoming Historic Jacksonville podcasts.  And you can still enjoy video clips from some of David’s other concerts by visiting his website at  Plus a CD titled “Wayfarin’ Stranger” and featuring selections from five years of his Pioneer History in Story & Song series is available at

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 classical 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.

You can revisit part of David’s 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 series at his website,
