Description : Six-time Grammy nominated folk musician John McCutcheon performs his 18th benefit concert for the Modesto Peace/Life Center. John is a master of guitar, banjo, hammer dulcimer, piano and fiddle. Johnny Cash called him “the most impressive instrumentalist I’ve ever heard.” His socially and politically conscious songs inspire us, his songs about family and every-day life move us and his wicked sense of humor entertains us. John's "Christmas in the Trenches" is considered one of the most moving and powerful peace songs and can be heard here:

Red Tail Ring will perform with John. The Michigan-based duo creates lush, intricate arrangements of original folk music and traditional ballads with banjo, fiddle, guitar, and close harmonies. They are fresh off their fourth full-length studio release, Fall Away Blues. Featuring new songwriting fused with old-time and country blues themes, the album tackles topical subjects such as gun violence and environmentalism as well as age-old questions of place and love.

Online tickets are available at $25 plus service fee. Tickets at the door will be $28. Youth 24 and under are $10. Advance tickets at $25 without a service fee may also be purchased in person by cash or check at the Modesto Church of the Brethren, 2301 Woodland Ave., 523-1438 or at Intrinsic Elements, 1214 J Street, 409-8510.
