No one remembers when the neighbors started calling the McCutcheons about the loud singing from young John’s bedroom, where he had “found his voice” thanks to a cheap mail-order guitar and a used book of chords. From such inauspicious beginnings, John McCutcheon emerged as one of the nation’s most respected folksingers and storytellers, as well as a master of a dozen different instruments. With song crafting that has been hailed around the globe, he writes about societal issues important to communities and workers, reflecting his passion for grassroots causes. The result is music with a profound mark of place, family, and strength.
IN THE NEWS: John McCutcheon is featured in a wonderful article by Carol Rifkin in the Asheville Scene. Check out the article here.
