John McCutcheon is an American folksinger, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. He is regarded as a master of the hammered dulcimer, and is also proficient on many other instruments including guitar, banjo, autoharp, mountain dulcimer, fiddle, and jawharp. His eclectic catalog of ballads, historical songs, children’s songs, love songs, topical satire, fiddle and hammer dulcimer instrumentals, and even symphonic works, are among the broadest in American folk music. His vast repertoire also includes songs from many other contemporary writers. His own songwriting has been hailed by critics around the world; his song “Christmas in the Trenches” is considered a classic and was named one of the 100 Essential Folk Songs by NPR, alongside “John Henry,” “This Land Is Your Land,” and “Blowin’ in the Wind.” His thirty-six albums have earned six Grammy nominations.

John’s most recent release, “Cabin Fever: Songs from the Quarantine,” featuring 18 songs that are both topical and timeless, was the top album on folk radio DJ charts during June and July 2020,

Plans for 2021/2022 Season

Plans to reopen to in-person concerts for our 2021/2022 Season have been paused.

Friends, we announced in May that the Indy Folk Series was hoping to reopen in September with a “hybrid” approach that would offer both in-person limited capacity concerts and the opportunity to view the concert via remote livestream.

Unfortunately, due to the rise in COVID cases in the IndyMetro area and across the country, plans for in-person events have been put on hold.  As of mid-August, the Indy Folk Series will not be presenting any in-person events at UUI for an unknown period of time, however we DO intend to proceed with plans to offer livestream concerts.

At such time as the risk factor is reduced, we will re-visit the reopening plan.

About the Indy Folk Series

If you know the Indy Folk Series, you know it’s special: a listening room venue where the audience is up close and personal; where the vibe is real and the sound is magnificent.

The Indy Folk Series is an all-ages listening room venue featuring superb acoustics, art on the walls, and candles on the tables. Concerts are held in the performance space at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis, our home since the series was founded in 2001.

Never miss a show!
