Movin' On on 11/11/11
John McCutcheon plays live on Movin' On this Friday!
Wisconsin native John McCutcheon is an American folk music singer and multi-instrumentalist who has produced 34 albums since the 1970s. 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.
Much of his work, however, continues to focus on writing politically and socially conscious songs for adult audiences. One of his most successful songs, "Christmas in the Trenches" (from his 1984 album Winter Solstice) tells the story of the Christmas truce of 1914. He also wrote a song entitled Hail to the Chief consisting entirely of malapropisms attributed to George W. Bush.
McCutcheon will be playing at the Alberta Rose Theater on Friday night, Nov 11, 2011.
