David's Guitar

David Gordon first picked up a guitar in 1959 and he's been singing with one ever since.

Drawing on his lifelong love of traditional and contemporary acoustic music, he interweaves songs of love, compassion, and laughter with stories, poetry, musings, and his own uniquely goofy brand of humor.

Throughout his musical career, David's intention has always been to open hearts through song and story, and share with his listeners the power of words and music and the joys of living and love.
