Fresh Roasted Concerts is proud to present John McCutcheon in concert on Friday, January 25 at 7:30 at Matilija Auditorium, 703 El Paseo Rd., Ojai. Considered to be one of America's finest folksingers, John McCutcheon is an amazing instrumentalist and storyteller as well. With over twenty-seven albums to his credit and three Grammy nominations, his concerts have become legendary for their exploration of community, continuity and hope. The Washington Post called his concerts, "little feats of magic".
A John McCutcheon concert features an array of instruments that includes the hammered dulcimer, guitar, banjo and autoharp; strong lyrics tackling the issues of the day, and stories told with the richness of literature. After 30 years of international touring, McCutcheon is at the top of his game in observances of history, work, love, aging and small town life. "A virtuoso instrumentalist who never lets his technical wizardry interfere with the heartfelt message of his songs. My only regret is that I'll never again experience the thrill of hearing him for the first time."- Ahser Raboy, conductor, Napa Valley Symphony.
