...the most impressive instrumentalist I ever heard.
-- Johnny Cash.
John McCutcheon has "the charisma of Pete
Seeger, the eloquence of a poet, the repertoire of a library,
and the virtuosity of an orchestra." His performances are
legendary events that reach into human doings and find strings
that tie all of us together. Numerous reviewers have called
him one of the most versatile and powerful songwriters of the
century, and his more than twenty record albums have been greeted
with critical and popular acclaim. John is also performing with
symphony orchestras to audiences of all ages. A multi-instrumentalist
wonder, John is a master at leading into a song with a story.
For tonight's show, John will be backed by the band that is
featured on his stunning new CD, "Mightier Than the Sword"
- John Jennings (vocal, guitar), Rani
Arbo (vocal, fiddle), Scott Kessell (percussion),
Julie Wolf (keyboards), and JT Brown
(bass). Truly a very special show!
