John McCutcheon, Master Musical Storyteller
John McCutcheon is one of our country’s greatest musical storytellers. He wrote his first song at 15 years old. Since then, he has written hundreds of songs and released 36 albums, garnering six Grammy nominations. McCutcheon is a master instrumentalist and a fabled storyteller, known for his ballads, historical songs, children’s songs, love songs, topical satire, and instrumentals. “One of our country’s best songwriters,” said Pete Seeger.
John McCutcheon’s first award-winning song was titled The Ponderosa No-Cream-in-My-Coffee Blues, penned at the greasy spoon of the same name in his Wisconsin hometown. He was all of 15 years old and it won him his high school talent show. “My best friend claims that he still has a cassette of the song,” McCutcheon recently disclosed, “and if we ever have a serious falling out it’s going right up on YouTube.”
