    Hi Ed – really sorry to hear you haven’t had a good experience at Golden Link. We try to create a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere, but there are many different people at the meetings with different styles of interacting and occasionally it doesn’t work out for some people. I’m glad you’re coming to the Festival and hope you have a better time there.

    McCutcheon_close-up_400px.jpgJohn McCutcheon is folk music’s Renaissance man – a master instrumentalist (hammer dulcimer, banjo, guitar, piano, autoharp), powerful singer-songwriter, storyteller, activist, and author. His eclectic catalog of ballads, historical songs, children’s songs, love songs, topical satire, instrumentals, and even symphonic works is among the broadest in American folk music. His 30+ albums have earned seven Grammy nominations.
