An Evening with John McCutcheon
"The most impressive instrumentalist I've ever heard."
— Johnny Cash
"He has an uncanny ability to breathe new life into the familiar. His storytelling has the richness of fine literature."
— Washington Post
John McCutcheon has emerged as one of the most respected and beloved folksingers in America, and his songwriting has been hailed by critics and singers around the globe. As an instrumentalist, he is a master of a dozen different traditional instruments, most notably the rare and beautiful hammer dulcimer. His thirty recordings have garnered every imaginable honor, including seven Grammy nominations, and he’s produced over twenty albums of other artists, from traditional fiddlers to contemporary singer-songwriters to educational and documentary works. His books and instructional materials have introduced budding players to the joys of their own musicality. Last but not least, his commitment to grassroots political organizations has put him on the front lines of many of the issues important. Creative Alliance is excited to welcome one of the best in the form to our stage.
