On December 11, the International Storytelling Center (ISC) is pleased to feature two concerts from world-renowned folk musician John McCutcheon. These concerts are a special feature of ISC’s Storytelling Live! season, a showcase of the country’s top storytellers.
John McCutcheon’s wide repertoire, ranging from multi-instrumental ballads to satire to symphony, provides the fodder for an unforgettable concert of song and story. With 36 albums and seven Grammy nominations, he’s been hailed as “one of our country’s best songwriters” by Pete Seeger and “the most impressive instrumentalist I’ve ever heard” by Johnny Cash.
The marriage of song and story is a beloved one, earning the award-winning McCutcheon a top spot among storytelling fans at the National Storytelling Festival. With a style often compared to Will Rogers and Garrison Keillor, few people communicate with his versatility, charm, wit or pure talent.
Both concerts will take place on Monday, December 11, in the theater of the International Storytelling Center, with a matinee at 2 pm and an evening show at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $20 each and are expected to sell out quickly. Reservations for this concert are strongly recommended, though walk-in seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Storytelling Live! is supported by Premier Sponsor, Mountain States’ Heart & Soul Program, Citi, Eastman Credit Union, East Tennessee Foundation, Food City, Foster Signs, National Endowment for the Arts, Niswonger Foundation and the Tennessee Arts Commission.
The International Storytelling Center is open 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. For tickets, more information about Storytelling Live! or to make a group reservation, call (800) 952-8392 ext. 222 or (423) 913-1276.
