John McCutcheon is one of our most respected and loved folksingers. He is a master of a dozen different traditional instruments, most notably the rare and beautiful hammer dulcimer. His songwriting has been hailed by critics and singers around the globe. His thirty recordings have garnered every imaginable honor including seven Grammy nominations. He has produced over twenty albums of other artists, from traditional fiddlers to contemporary singer-songwriters to educational and documentary works. His books and instructional materials have introduced budding players to the joys of their own musicality. And his commitment to grassroots political organizations has put him on the front lines of many of the issues important to communities and workers.

May 3, 2019 is the 100th anniversary of Pete Seeger's birth. Surely no one has had a greater impact on American folk music than Pete. John McCutcheon was both a student and a friend of Pete's and has released a stunning new album celebrating the Seeger century: To Everyone in All the World: a Celebration of Pete Seeger. Come join in this joyous, expansive celebration of Pete Seeger with one of folk music's great performers.

A John McCutcheon concert is "like a conversation with an illuminating old friend," filled with "little feats of magic, breathtaking in their ease and grace..."
