|Six-time Grammy nominated folk musician John McCutcheon performs his 17th 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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJi41RWaTCs
Mark and Cindy Lemaire will open the concert. Mark is known for his unique guitar style, with a delicate touch that goes straight to your heart. While his solo guitar pieces stand as complete statements, Marks harmonies with Cindy are so perfectly matched that they seem like two people with one voice, creating something both authentic and unique. They tour the world, performing in 2018 from New Zealand to Scotland to Canada, as well as here in the states.
