Listen to Traditional Folk Music at Frying Pan Farm Park

Hear the traditional music styling of folk singer-songwriter John McCutcheon during the Fairfax County Park Authority’s free Hunter Mill Nights Summer Concert Series. The performance will be held Thursday, June 19, 2014 from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Frying Pan Farm Park.

McCutcheon has always been musically talented, winning his first award for songwriting as a teenager. Since the 1970s, he has written over 100 songs and produced 36 albums. McCutcheon writes a variety of songs, from ballads to historical songs. His writing reflects both simplicity and layered complexity, creating music that people can easily identify with but also carry a deeper moral meaning. McCutcheon is also accomplished on many instruments including hammered dulcimer, guitar and banjo.

McCutcheon’s strong story writing skills have received numerous awards and high praise by critics around the world. He has earned six Grammy nominations, collaborated with major folk songwriters and co-wrote songs with famous authors such as Barbara Kingsolver and Wendell Berry. His song “Christmas in the Trenches” has recently been named one of the 100 Essential Folk Songs.

Frying Pan Farm Park is located at 2709 West Ox Road in Herndon, Va.
