- Friday the 18th, 7:30 p.m.: First Congregational Church, Santa Cruz--annual benefit show for the Resource Center for Nonviolence.
- Saturday the 19th, 10 a.m.: children & family concert, First Congregational Church, Santa Cruz. (Also an annual benefit show for RCNV.)

McCutcheon's one of my favorite musicians and songwriters. I usually attend the Friday night RCNV benefit concerts, and usually enjoy them quite a bit.
Those unfamiliar with his music may be interested in some samples (most or all of his many albums are now available from the iTunes Store). For links to the iTunes Store versions of some of my favorites of his songs, see an entry about McCutcheon I wrote a couple years ago, plus another entry about his best-known song, "Christmas in the Trenches."
A couple more songs I neglected to mention in those entries:
