John McCutcheon: Singer, songwriter, instrumentalist extraordinaire
Saturday, November 10 @ 8:00 pm$25
John McCutcheon is certainly one of the performers most often mentioned when were are asked when one of our previous musicians will be returning to Caltech. The Washington Post once described him as the “Rustic Renaissance Man” of folk music, and with his songwriting talent, his voice, his multi-instrumental talents (guitar, hammer dulcimer, fiddle, autoharp, hamboning, and much more more), his ability to interpret the songs of others, his vitality, and involvement in social affairs, this description is appropriate and true. Listen to his song, I Am an Immigrant, which he recorded way back in 2004, and you’ll know where his is coming from and just how far out ahead of the curve he is. On the stage, he is funny and personable. He can move you with a powerful song like Christmas in the Trenches and delight you with the alternative birthday song, Cut the Cake. See John’s web site at www.Folkmusic.com.
