John McCutcheon Releases CD
New release from John McCutcheon (2009 Appalseed Productions)

This new double-CD album, for the first time, showcases John McCutcheon's double-barreled talents as both a singer/songwriter/instrumental virtuoso and as a world-class storyteller. The first CD, Untold, was recorded live at the 2008 National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, TN. Whether taking us along on a trip with his teenage son and his friends or recounting a meeting with a construction worker from the Sydney Opera House, John exhibits what the Washington Post called, "storytelling with the power of fine literature." The album's second CD, Unsung, features some of the most compelling and popular songwriting of John's career. Sara Tucholosky tells the story of a young college softball player and her brush with true sportsmanship. Streets of Sarajevo recounts the story of Vedran Smailovic, the "cellist of Sarajevo," who makes a guest appearance on cello for the song. And Old People in Love is a sure-to-be classic with the added treat of Suzy Boggus dueting with John.
