John McCutcheon 
is folk music's renaissance man — 
master instrumentalist, powerful 
singer-songwriter, storyteller, activist, and author…  

His songs sing of the nation's heritage. His words channel the conscience of our people into streams of poetry and melody. He writes about subjects small and great, from a child's haircut to freedom and human dignity – issues equally eternal and enduring. Think of McCutcheon as an incarnation of Pete Seeger and Mr. Rogers, Will Rogers and Bruce Springsteen, and above all Everyman, righteously passionate and impishly playful, blessed with gifts as a songwriter, historian, musician and storyteller that have won him praise in Australia as "the most overwhelming folk performer in the English language," from a Russian critic as "the most versatile and compelling performer this reviewer has ever seen," and from Johnny Cash as "the most impressive instrumentalist I've ever heard." John has been cited as "the perfect example of the modern folk musician" by Sing Out! magazine, lauded by Utne Reader for conveying "his message about the amazing endurance of what's best in American culture."

Add to that the 31 albums in his catalog, and the six Grammy nominations and multiple Parent's Choice and American Library Association awards they've won, stir in the diverse and growing following that has flocked to his shows; McCutcheon is as timeless as tradition, as immediate as tomorrow's headlines, and as vital as any artist who seeks to enlighten as well as entertain. John's most recently released double-CD "Untold" and "Unsung" highlights John as singer/songwriter/instrumental virtuoso and world-class storyteller.
