John McCutcheon has emerged as one of our 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 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.
The Focal Point welcomes John Mccutcheon back to our stage for a sure-to-sel-out performance.
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
The most impressive instrumentalist Ive ever heard.
He has an uncanny ability to breathe new life into the familiar. His storytelling has the richness of fine literature.
Calling John McCutcheon a folksinger is like saying Deion Sanders is just a football player.
