McCutcheon released To Everyone in All the World: A Celebration of Pete Seeger in January, McCutcheon’s 40th album. About the project:
“This is an album I’ve been waiting over fifty years to make!” said folk music stalwart, John McCutcheon, of this, his fortieth recording. In this wide-ranging tribute to the music of his friend and mentor Pete Seeger, McCutcheon draws from an amazing swath of the folk music world: the bluegrass of Hot Rize, the Cajun soul of Beausoleil, the stunning harmonies of Canada’s Finest Kind, the lush alto of Nicaragua’s Katia Cardenal, blues great Corey Harris, fiddle wizard Stuart Duncan, and country music’s Suzy Bogguss. McCutcheon’s inventive arrangements and familiar ease with the material showcase the spectrum of music left us by the iconic Seeger. It is also, like Seeger’s music, a love letter “to everyone in all the world.”
