THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS): Presents “Gordon Bok” on Sunday, October 12. Perennial favorite Gordon Bok is returning to Woods Hole for the 14th time! This legendary performer from Camden, Maine has written many memorable songs and stories based on people around him who lived on the water. His mellow baritone weaves compelling tales of sailors, seals, schooners and mythical sea folk. Master of both 6- and 12-string guitar, as well as cellamba (his own invention), he has made dozens of solo and collaborative albums featuring both contemporary and traditional material, and his songs are sung by performers around the globe. A cross-cultural pioneer, he introduced music of South America to the American folkstream and played an important role in preserving Kalmyk Mongolian songs; a lifelong woodworker, his exquisite bas-relief carvings are in high demand. 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of Gordon's epic folk opera "Play of the Lady Odivere," based on Orkney legend, and perhaps he will share some magical music and stories from this newly remastered work. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $15, with discounts for members, seniors, youth, and children. The Community Hall is handicapped accessible. There is no charge for street parking after 6:00 p.m. More information is available at www.arts-cape.com/whfolkmusic or by calling (508) 540-0320.
