John McCutcheon
Folk musics Rustic Renaissance Man (Washington Post), John 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 thirty recordings have garnered every imaginable honor including seven Grammy nominations.  He has 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.  And his commitment to grassroots political organizations has put him on the front lines of many of the issues important to communities and workers.

Even before graduating summa cum laude from Minnesotas St. Johns University, Wisconsin native John McCutcheon literally headed for the hills, forgoing a college lecture hall for the classroom of the eastern Kentucky coal camps, union halls, country churches and square dance halls.  His apprenticeship to many of the legendary figures of Appalachian music imbedded a love of not only home-made music, but a sense of community and rootedness.  The result is music, whether traditional or from his huge catalog of original songs, with the profound mark of place, family and strength.  It also created a storytelling style that has been compared to Will Rogers and Garrison Keillor.

Besides his usual circuit of major concert halls and theaters, John is equally at home in an elementary school auditorium, a festival stage or at a farm rally.  In the past few years alone he has headlined over a dozen different festivals in North America, toured Australia for the sixth time, toured Chile in support of a women's health initiative, appeared in a Woody Guthrie tribute concert in New York City, served as President of the fastest-growing Local in the Musicians Union and given symphony pops concerts across America and special concerts at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival and the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

But 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 feel at home in a concert hall when John McCutcheon takes the stage.  Whether in print, on record or on stage, few people communicate with the versatility, charm, wit or pure talent of 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
