Brilliant lyricist and storyteller, virtuoso singer, fiddler, and guitarist, and undisputed master of the hammered dulcimer, John McCutcheon runs the gamut from kid's songs to protest anthems to updates of his Appalachian and Midwestern roots mixed with stunning originals.

In the 1960s John traded the university classroom for the front porches, union halls, and churches of the Appalachians. Under the tutelage of the greats of traditional Southern music, he mastered seven different instruments, became an insightful and powerful singer of traditional songs, and honed an ear for a good story.

In addition to a recent concert DVD (aptly titled John McCutcheon Live), John just released a double CD that encompasses the breadth of his gifts. Word, recorded live at the 2008 National Storytelling Festival, explores John's prodigious gifts as a storyteller, and Song features some of John's very best new songs, including "Old People in Love" and "Streets of Sarajevo."
