Tickets are availalble NOW! JOHN McCUTCHEON will perform TWO Benefit Concerts for the Resource Center for Nonviolence in January: an evening concert on Friday, January 22, and a morning Family/Children’s Concert on Saturday, January 23.
John McCutcheon is a gifted folklorist, singer, entertainer, multiple instrumentalist, and storyteller coming to Santa Cruz once again for two fabulous concerts on behalf of the Resource Center for Nonviolence: Friday evening, January 22, 7:30p.m. AND a Family/Children’s Concert on Saturday, January 23, 10:00a.m. Both concerts will be held at First Congregational Church, 900 High Street.
Tickets are available NOW at Streetlight Records, 941 Pacific Ave. and the Resource Center for Nonviolence, 515 Broadway, Santa Cruz. For ticket information: 831-423-1626 or http://www.rcnv.org, or email Anita, anitaheckman [at] gmail.com
Friday Tickets: $16-25 sliding scale advance, $18-25 door; Saturday Tickets: $8-15 advance, $10-15 door.
While playing an array of instruments, John talks and speaks through songs about love, war, peace, justice, and the ironies and absurdities of life. Whether evoking the near-mystical appeal of the National Pastime in “Baseball on the Block,” or joining children in their appreciation of life’s mundane wonders in songs like “Haircut” and “Hot Chocolate,” McCutcheon has earned Grammy nominations and a string of Gold Awards from Parent’s Choice magazine, the American Library Association, and others who celebrate excellence.
There is something miraculous in McCutcheon’s ability to bond with audiences of all ages, cultures, and ideologies as they discern “the pithy insight of Will Rogers, the understated delivery of Garrison Keillor, the song-leading ability of Pete Seeger, and the virtuosity of an orchestra” in what this artist offers.
The doors are wide open to all who would be uplifted, challenged, motivated, and captivated by the music of John McCutcheon. Please join us!
