The Guitar Man for Kids
"Thank you so much for visiting Kilgour
School! You did an amazing job of creating two totally
unique programs for both our primary and intermediate
students, actively engaging each group fantastically!
You had our entire faculty on their feet doing the hula,
which is a testament to what a gifted entertainer you
are. Weeks later, I still have teachers asking me to
pass along how wonderful your show was. We hope to have
you back again soon. Dena Hipskind (2010)
Thank you so much for a wonderful school
tour! As you can see, you were a big hit! - The Kids
love your shows and have fun learning about music!

America's charango, the balalaika-in his own and others'
playful and soulful songs… Throughout McCutcheon's
lively, assured vocals and conversational comments reach
out with expressive warmth, humor and ease of delivery,
making him sound as if he's a very talented friend who's
come over for a visit-with his entire 'guitar
