Please, join us for a night of music, storytelling, and community with friends around the world in this uniquely powerful event!
John McCutcheon writes and performs music that informs, inspires, and motivates…from our history and from John’s prolific pen. As he tells it, “Music can move hips, hearts, and, sometimes, mountains.”
His introduction to folk music came via 1963’s March on Washington, and from from the very beginning he saw music as connected to something greater than mere entertainment: inclusive, participatory and powerful. In his 50-year career, he has written song after song celebrating the struggles of ordinary people fighting for dignity and respect…in the mine, the mill, the classroom; in the kitchen, the factory or the office. His songs can be hilarious or they can be angry. But inevitably – and we think this is his great gift – they tell the small stories that reveal great truths.
