PUTNEY — Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present an evening with folksinger, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, storyteller, activist and author John McCutcheon at Next Stage on Friday, September 13, at 7:30 pm.
Folk music's "Rustic Renaissance Man" (Washington Post) John McCutcheon is a master of a dozen different traditional instruments, most notably the hammer dulcimer. His 30 recordings have garnered numerous honors, including seven Grammy nominations. He has produced over 20 albums of other artists, from traditional fiddlers to contemporary singer-songwriters to educational and documentary works. His books and instructional materials have introduced budding players to the joys of their own musicality. And his commitment to grassroots political organizations has put him on the front lines of many of the issues important to communities and workers.
