Livestream Concert “Jackpot! A Wild Card Show,” Saturday, May 13
Saturday, May 13 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm$20
When troubador John McCutcheon laid plans for a 2023 concert series to be presented online in collaboration with our organization and others, he said to “expect the unexpected” in the last of the four concerts. He will perform that one, “Jackpot! A Wild Card Show,” on Saturday, May 13. Sure enough, there has already been a surprise. The online platform that had been the ticket-handler and log-on address for some excellent livestreamed concerts in the past two years, Mandolin, abruptly went out of business two weeks ago. McCutcheon personnally hustled to arrange another way to stream the concert. If you already purchased a ticket through Mandolin, it will be honored; you will get log-on information via email. If you don’t have a ticket yet, here is the new link.
For this May 13 concert, McCutcheon plans to bring out some songs, instruments and stories that haven’t been part of his previous concerts, and also to include some popular favorites from his five-decade, 43-album career. “Expect the unexpected and there might even be a surprise guest or two,” says his web page…. what won’t be a surprise for any McCutcheon concert is that you’ll hear powerfully written songs, virtuosity on multiple instruments, engaging stories and impressively clear singing.
The “Jackpot!” livestream will begin at 4 p.m. Pacific Time. Ticket-holders get access to unlimited replays within 48 hours after the live show, handy for shifting the concert to a later hour or enjoying it a second time. Twenty dollars gets you a regular ticket. Other options in the drop-down menu for online tickets are discounts for students or unemployed people and premiums for a family/household ticket or music supporter ticket. A bit of the ticket money goes to the Pasadena Folk Music Society, which will help us present in-person shows in future months.
