John McCutcheon was scheduled to perform at the Indy Folk Series in 2020. That concert was postponed, and due to scheduling issues, the event has been moved to the Indiana Historical Society, located at 450 W. Ohio St. Indianapolis, IN 46202. This concert will be in-person only, we do not have the capability to livestream from this location.
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,
