FOLK MUSIC SINGER/STORYTELLER & MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST
with John McCutcheon
“John McCutcheon is not only one of the best musicians in the USA, but also a great singer, songwriter, and song leader. And not just incidentally, he is committed to helping hard-working people everywhere to organize and push this world in a better direction.” — Pete Seeger
John McCutcheon has become one of the most-requested musicians in the Oaksong Music Society’s lineup. He is now set to return for the first show of 2019! It’s not difficult to understand why John McCutcheon is so popular. Performing since the 1970’s, McCutcheon is regarded as one of the country’s most respected and loved folksingers. Described by The Washington Post as “Folk Music's Rustic Renaissance Man", McCutcheon’s storytelling style has been compared to that of Will Rogers and Garrison Keillor. As an instrumentalist, he is a master of a dozen different traditional instruments, most notably the rare and beautiful hammer dulcimer. Johnny Cash once called him, “the most impressive instrumentalist I've ever heard." In concert, he plays a wide variety of instruments, including 6 and 12-string guitars, banjo, fiddle, piano, accordion, autoharp, concertina, and of course, the hammer dulcimer.
Whether in print, on record, or on stage, few people communicate with the versatility, charm, wit or pure talent of John McCutcheon.
