John McCutcheon

  • Stoltz Listening Room 40 East Dover Street Easton, MD, 21601 United States (map)

John McCutcheon’s first award-winning song was entitled “The Ponderosa No-Cream-in-My-Coffee Blues”, penned at the greasy spoon of the same name in his Wisconsin hometown. He was all of 15 years old and it won him his high school talent show. 

“My best friend claims that he still has a cassette of the song,” McCutcheon recently disclosed, “and if we ever have a serious falling out it’s going right up on YouTube.”

Since those early creative days McCutcheon’s thirty-six albums have earned 6 Grammy nominations while his hundreds of eclectic songs have garnered more than his share of accolades, with his song “Christmas in the Trenches” considered a classic and recently named one of the 100 Essential Folk Songs.
