John McCutcheon will appear in concert at Attic Theater D. Geraldine Performing Arts Center on Route 220 in Fincastle, VA on Saturday January 5, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. Each year the Twelfth Night Charity presents a concert of free family entertainment for the entire community. The charity concert has its origin at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Fincastle where the first concert was held over 20 years ago. The concert is free to the public, but admission tickets are required due to limited seating. Patrons are requested to bring food and money as voluntary offerings for the two benefitting charities, the Botetourt Country Food Pantry and the Botetourt County Social Services Emergency Winter Fuel Fund, are distributed between the two charities. The Food Pantry gives food to needy families and provides other emergency assistance, while the Emergency Fuel Fund assists economically depressed families and individuals having difficulties paying winter utility bills.
John McCutcheon has emerged as one of our most respected and loved folksingers. As an instrumentalist, he is a master of a dozen different traditional instruments, most notably the rare and beautiful hammer dulcimer. His songwriting has been hailed by critics and singers around the globe. His recordings have garnered every imaginable honor including seven Grammy nominations.
The concert is organized and produced by volunteers from St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Fincastle, and the local community. Advance tickets will be available in December at Bank of Botetourt branches, at Digital Image Printing in Daleville, and by mail at 12th Night Concert, Attn: Treasurer, P.O. Box 277, Fincastle, VA 24090. Mail requests should include a self-addressed and stamped return mail envelope.
