FREE John McCutcheon Concert, January 31 at 7 p.m. at the Gilmer High School Auditorium.Johnny Cash called him the “most impressive instrumentalist” he’d ever heard. Indeed, he plays myriad instruments—from the banjo to the octave mandolin to the nyckelharpa—but he is so much more. John McCutcheon is at once storyteller and musician, blending the two seamlessly to edify and entertain on topics ranging from the armistice of 1914 to poetry about doughnuts (“Ode to a Krispy Kreme”). And while he is an entity unto himself, his collaborative partners include an impressive string of knowns from all walks, from New York Times bestselling novelist Barbara Kingsolver to the late, great Pete Seeger. Five-time Grammy nominee, master of the hammered dulcimer, headliner at festivals across the USA, author, teacher…you won’t want to miss this performance by Craddock Center friend John McCutcheon.
