Writer, teacher and mentor JON YOUNG has written a book about looking at birds like no other. WHAT THE ROBIN KNOWS: HOW BIRDS REVEAL THE SECRETS OF THE NATURAL WORLD takes the reader into the world of “deep bird language”.  By learning the behaviors and vocalizations of the birds found immediately around us we can begin to know individual birds. The calls and flights that birds make when a cat on the hunt enters their territory or when a Cooper’s Hawk flies overhead are very different and you can learn these variations.

John Gorka, Lori Diamond and Fred Abatelli open

Many well known artists have recorded and/or performed John Gorka songs, including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith, Mary Black and Maura O’Connell. John has graced the stage of Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, etown and has appeared on CNN. His new song “Where No Monuments Stand” is featured in the upcoming documentary Every War Has Two Losers, about activist and Oregon Poet Laureate William Stafford (1914-1993).

Pierre Bensusan

If “World Music” is music that pays tribute to the spirit of a collection of human beings through distinct rhythms, traditional instruments and harmonic colors, French-Algerian guitarist, singer and composer Pierre Bensusan can be recognized as one of the most eloquent and diverse world musicians of our time.  His name became synonymous with contemporary acoutsic guitar genius, long before the terms New Age, New Acoustic Music or World Music were invented.
