Gordon Thorne – “Local Showcase” – Wednesday Songwriter Series at Papa Charlie’s
On Monday & Wednesday evenings, Papa Charlie’s transforms into a listening room showcasing the Midwest’s top songwriters in a theater-like setting. The intimate room and great sound gives the audience an opportunity to immerse into the stories and craft of the song.
In Gordon’s words he describes himself as playing: “Early American music from a time when giant Bluesmen roamed the earth.” Gordon Thorne picked up a guitar 30 years ago and hasn’t put it down since. He spent years mining early American blues & jazz, blending them with his own style, and serves up what he calls “modern sounds of yesterday – today”. Known as the meanest fingerpicker in Northern Minnesota where he spends his time working, raising kids and playing a little guitar.
Please Note: In an effort to create the listening room environment, we ask all guests in the main room to limit conversation during the performance. Guests looking for casual dining and conversation may be seated in the adjoining Mountain View Grill.
It’s free every Monday & Wednesday night at 8:00 PM
