John McCutcheon to headline at the 29th North Georgia Folk Festival

Friends – we are in for a treat this year when John McCutcheon returns to the North Georgia Folk Festival on Oct 5.  I mean, we have a great lineup this year, but I was super excited to be able to get John to come.  He is a master storyteller, songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist who many of us remember from his spellbinding performance at the festival a few years ago.  Check him out at http://www.folkmusic.com  (who better to play at the Folk Festival than someone whose web site is folkmusic.com?)
