Acclaimed musician John Gorka will be in concert with special guest Carrie Elkin at 8 p.m. July 18 at Crossings at Carnegie, Zumbrota.

Gorka, a contemporary songwriter, creates songs that are powerful and engaging, a Crossings spokesman said.

He has gained increasing attention from critics and audiences across the country and in Europe, where his tours have led him through Italy, Belgium, Scotland, Ireland, Holland, Switzerland and Germany.

Minnesota-based Red House Records caught wind of John Gorka's talents in 1987 and released his first album, "I Know," to popular and critical acclaim. He recorded five albums over the next seven years.

Other performers also discovered his songwriting. More than a score of artists have recorded and/or performed Gorka's songs, including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Mary Black and Maura O'Connell.

Elkin, who will open for Gorka, is a troubadour in the classic fashion. A Crossings spokesman said, "Carrie Elkin has ridden a Gypsy breeze of serendipity for the last 10 years, finally settling in Austin, Texas, and setting its music scene abuzz."

Tickets are $24 in advance, $26 at the door. Visit Crossings at 320 East Ave. or call (507) 732-7616. For more information, go online to www.crossingsatcarnegie.com.
