Featuring Gordon Thorne on Guitar

Thu, Jun 6, 2024 – 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm


Don’t miss Date Night at the Winery at 202 Ski Hill Road in Lutzen, MN! They are open late on Thursdays, so grab your date and come down to the winery for music from 6:30-8 p.m.

This week the music will be by Gordon Thorne. Gordon Thorne picked up a guitar 30 years ago and hasn’t put it down since. He spent years mining early American blues and jazz, blending them with his own style, and serves up what he calls, “the modern sounds of yesterday – today.” Known as the meanest fingerpicker in Northern Minnesota it is where he spends his time working, raising kids and playing a little guitar.

More about Gordon Thorne: The major influences on Gordon Thorne’s guitar style have been the legends of country blues. Such legendary bluesmen as Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Willie McTell and Big Bill Broonzy have all left their mark on Thorne’s guitar style. Combining these ragtime and piedmont influences with his own interpretations, Thorne delivers forceful, precise guitar work and soulful vocals. Thorne has been a regular performer in the northern Minnesota and Wisconsin areas for the many years. As much as his musical interests have influenced his playing, his lifestyle has shaped how he views his music. Spend some time riding the rails with Gordon Thorne, one of the most talented acoustic blues musicians in the Northland.

So come and sip some great wine and listen to great music played by Gordon Thorne. You’ll be really glad that you did!
