McCutcheon Wide with Text

Streaming on Mandolin with a 48-hour replay window

Powerful singer-songwriter, master instrumentalist, storyteller, activist, and author John McCutcheon performs an evening of his music and tells the stories behind the songs – like where he came up with the idea for a song, how he researched one of the many historical songs he’s written, or who he wrote it for. Send in your request, in advance, that he sing and talk about a particular song you’ve always wanted to hear.  

Golden Link is one of a number of presenters who are sponsoring this concert on Mandolin and a portion of every ticket purchased via Golden Link will also help support our organization


McCutcheon’s eclectic catalog of ballads, historical songs, children’s songs, love songs, topical satire, instrumentals, and even symphonic works is among the broadest in American folk music and his 30+ albums have earned seven Grammy nominations.

Tips for Watching on Mandolin:

Once you have bought a ticket, set up your own Mandolin account using your name and email address. This makes it really easy to log in before the show, using that same email address, and your show will be available. All you have to do at that point is click in the show and it will start at the appointed time. We encourage you to set up your computer or portable device with your home stereo speakers for the best quality sound.

If you’re having difficulty getting to the concert, check out Mandolin’s online help section at Note that once you set up a Mandolin account, you can also choose whether or not you want to receive marketing emails from Mandolin – that’s as simple as either checking the opt-in box or not. 

When you have purchased your ticket, you can also log in and put comments in the chat line. This is great for during the show, but you can also put in requests in advance of the show.
