Called folk music’s Renaissance man, John McCutcheon is an engaging storyteller, powerful singer-songwriter, and master instrumentalist (hammer dulcimer, banjo, guitar, piano, autoharp) who excels at getting people singing together and thinking about what’s important in life.
We’re in for a real treat when he returns for a Golden Link concert on Saturday, February 17 at 7:30 pm at the Rochester Christian Reformed Church. (Click here for concert details.)
Local musician Allen Hopkins says of McCutcheon, “His set at the Turtle Hill Folk Festival a couple years ago was the finest individual performance I’ve seen in decades; he’s master of several instruments, a great singer, and has an evident social conscience that pervades his music. If you only see one concert this week, this is the one not to miss.”Read more
