John Hutchison Concert on August 26, 7:30 pm. Cost – $12.
When singer/songwriter John Hutchison takes the stage one should prepare for an adventure in songcraft. With rich lyrical imagery riding sublime melodies served up with beautiful acoustic guitar the audience enters into the storyteller’s weavings like classic tales told around a campfire. His songs let you in on the secrets of where he’s been, what he’s seen, what he’s felt, or maybe just imagined. His latest album of fifteen original songs pretty well sums it up in the title: Postcards From the State of Mind. In 2016 he gained national recognition of his talent when his song “Armageddon Nervous: the Apocalypso Song”(youtube) took the gold medal in the humor category of the songwriting contest at the National Championships of all things acoustic at the prestigious Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas. Whether performing solo or with some of the best musicians in the country, a concert with John is a special journey to parts known and unknown and you will find your world a richer place when you return.
