Brilliant songwriter, fascinating storyteller, virtuoso singer, fiddler, and guitarist, as well as the undisputed master of the hammered dulcimer, John McCutcheon has recorded more than 30 albums, including, most recently, tributes to Woody Guthrie and Joe Hill. John’s music runs the gamut from classic folk songs to his own politically and socially conscious originals. His shows are a mix of great stories, gorgeous singing, and skilled playing.

After graduating from St. John’s University in Minnesota, John travelled through Appalachia and learned traditional folk music from some of the living legends, Roscoe Holcomb, I.D. Stamper, and Tommy Hunter. When John became a father in the early 1980s, he started paying attention to children’s songs and decided that kids could handle music that was more substantial. He’s since recorded half a dozen children’s albums that parents can enjoy too. At the core of his performance, though, are the heartfelt originals and artful stories, wry, touching, and likely to pierce the heart.
