THIS SHOW IS SOLD OUT!
John McCutcheon, one of our most popular performers, returns to the Big Room in January. From a series of chance events, McCutcheon has become what one Australian newspaper called “the most overwhelming folk performer in the English language.” With his deep roots in American traditional music, his approach to writing reflects both a simplicity and a layered complexity that creates songs which are always more than they seem.
Dubbed one of the country’s best songwriters by Pete Seeger, McCutcheon paints intimate, insightful and often hilarious visions of Americana and has a catalog of hundreds of songs that performers throughout the world have covered. His classic "Christmas in the Trenches," has been repeatedly cited as the greatest anti-war song ever written and is the subject of an annual, coast-to-coast special on CBC/Radio-Canada, Canada's national public broadcaster. Critics reserve their most lavish praise for McCutcheon’s skill with the rare and beautiful hammer dulcimer, an instrument on which he is an undisputed world master. We invite you to experience John McCutcheon, whose performances are fun for the whole family. Get your tickets early as he sells out every year.
