“The most impressive instrumentalist I’ve ever heard.”
— Johnny Cash.
“He has an uncanny ability to breathe new life into the familiar. His storytelling has the richness of fine literature.”
— Washington Post.
John McCutcheon has emerged as one of the most respected and loved folk/ contemporary artists of the post war generation. 2016 will see the Australian launch of his CD’s 22 Days and Joe Hill’s Last Will.
As an instrumentalist, he is a master of a dozen different traditional instruments, most notably the rare and beautiful hammer dulcimer. His thirty five plus recordings have garnered every imaginable honour including seven Grammy nominations.
His exploration into the legendary figures of traditional Appalachian music imbedded a love of home-made music, whether traditional or from his huge catalogue of original songs this music leaves a profound mark of people and place, plus a storytelling style that has been compared to Will Rogers and Garrison Keillor.
Despite his myriad recordings, it is in live performance that John feels most at home. People of every generation and background seem to feel at home when John McCutcheon takes the stage – “little feats of magic, a conversation with an illuminating old friend”.
