|Our host church is closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and Old Sloop Coffeehouse is not presenting in-person concerts. Our remaining 2020 concerts have all been canceled, and it looks like it will be a while before we are back in our hall. We plan to present occasional virtual concerts, and we hope those will help to satisfy our thirst for musical performances and provide some semblance of gathering in community. a virtual, all-request concert with John McCutcheon Friday, November 13 at 7:30pm For more information and tickets, visit the concert page.|
John McCutcheon has emerged as one of our most respected and loved folksingers. As an instrumentalist, he is a master of a dozen different traditional instruments, most notably the rare and beautiful hammer dulcimer. His songwriting has been hailed by critics and singers around the globe. His thirty recordings have garnered every imaginable honor including seven Grammy nominations. He has produced over twenty albums of other artists, from traditional fiddlers to contemporary singer-songwriters to educational and documentary works. His books and instructional materials have introduced budding players to the joys of their own musicality. And his commitment to grassroots political organizations has put him on the front lines of many of the issues important to communities and workers. John McCutcheon was scheduled to appear at Old Sloop Coffeehouse this fall, and we are delighted to present this virtual concert. The concert will be presented on the Mandolin streaming platform.
