John MCutcheon in concert, November 11, 7:00 PM, Crescent Hill Baptist Church Sanctuary
John McCutcheon is one of the most respected and loved folksingers. As an instrumentalist, he is a master of a dozen different traditional instruments, most notably the rare and beautiful hammer dulcimer. His songwriting has been hailed by critics and singers around the globe. His recordings have garnered every imaginable honor including seven Grammy nominations. And his commitment to grassroots political organizations has put him on the front lines of many of the issues important to communities and workers.
It is in live performance that John feels most at home. It is what has brought his music into the lives and homes of one of the broadest audiences any folk musician has ever enjoyed. People of every generation and background seem to feel at home in a concert hall when John McCutcheon takes the stage, with what critics describe as “little feats of magic,” “breathtaking in their ease and grace…,” and “like a conversation with an illuminating old friend.” Whether in print, on record, or on stage, few people communicate with the versatility, charm, wit or pure talent of John McCutcheon.
John just released his 41st album, and we are glad to host him again in concert. Tickets are $25 in advance/$30 on the day of the show and can be purchased on the church’s website, in the church office, or at the door the evening of the concert. Doors open at 6:30 pm.
