Best known for writing and performing his folk songs about the people and places, the true and tall tales of the west coast, Gogo produced his sixth full-length album, Western Balladeer. Out on July 3rd, it features include Duke & Goldie, daughter Jeri Gogo, Tyler Lieb, David Essig, Ed Peekeekoot, brother Paul Gogo, cousin Brent Gubbels, Alan Moberg, Tobin Stokes, Rick Scott, Daniel Lapp, Dazy Weymer & Valdy.
