John McCutcheon Returns to Modesto

Six-time Grammy-nominated folk musician John McCutcheon performs his twenty-first benefit concert for the Modesto Peace/Life Center on Tuesday, Jan. 9 at 7:00 pm at the Modesto Church of the Brethren, 2301 Woodland Avenue.

Johnny Cash called him “the most impressive instrumentalist I’ve ever heard.” John is a master of the guitar, banjo, hammer dulcimer, piano, autoharp, and fiddle. His socially and politically conscious songs inspire us, his songs about family and everyday life move us and his wicked sense of humor entertains us. John’s latest, and 43rd, album, Together, was written and performed together with another folk legend, Tom Paxton.

Online tickets are available at In-person tickets are available at Intrinsic Elements 1214 J St., Modesto, by cash or check for $25, or at the door for $28. The new price for 30 years and younger is $10.
