Lighting up the Oaksong Music Society stage, John McCutcheon has become the most-requested musician in the Oaksong Music Society’s lineup. It’s not difficult to understand why John McCutcheon is so popular. Performing since the 1970’s, McCutcheon is regarded as one of the country’s most respected and loved folksingers. Described by The Washington Post as “Folk Music's Rustic Renaissance Man", McCutcheon’s storytelling style has been compared to that of Will Rogers and Garrison Keillor. As an instrumentalist, he is a master of a dozen different traditional instruments, most notably the rare and beautiful hammer dulcimer. Johnny Cash once called him, “the most impressive instrumentalist I've ever heard." In concert, he plays a wide variety of instruments, including 6 and 12-string guitars, banjo, fiddle, piano, accordion, autoharp, concertina, and of course, the hammer dulcimer.
