John McCutcheon is Coming!

John McCutcheon is Coming!


This is it! John McCutcheon is coming in concert!


If I sound excited, it’s because I am! I have been a John McCutcheon fan for a long time.  Back when I was a young mother, I would pop in one of his cassette tapes (yes, it was that long ago) and dance with my kids to “Kindergarten Wall”, “Mail Myself to You”, “Howjadoo”, or “Rubber Blubber Whale.” The first time I ever saw him live was at the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival and I was even more impressed. His music and storytelling were seamlessly entwined and I discovered that he could appeal to family members of all ages. He is a talented musician who truly loves music. He has a wide array of truly unique instruments, and a great voice to boot.


You may have heard John perform at the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival and if so,you know how entertaining he can be, but his festival performances are just the tip of the iceberg. On November 23 John is coming to Utah and this is your opportunity to see him at his best, on a stage in full concert. John will take you on a journey and the whole family is invited to come along.


I know this sounds cliché, but you won’t want to miss it. Really, you won’t! I can’t wait!

We love our sponsors!  Timpanogos Storytelling simply would not survive without them.

Today, we would like to congratulate our superstar sponsor, Kaleidoscope Pictures.  They were just awarded a Regional Emmy in the category Arts/Entertainment – Program/Special for their program with BYU Broadcasting, The Song That Changed My Life: Howard Jones.


According to their website, “The Song That Changed My Life is a chance for artists to tell the story they want to tell, to reach beyond the typical gossip and “how did you pick your band name?” questions. It’s their chance to take us backstage, back home, down the creative well and into their roots.” If you haven’t yet checked out this show you really should. It is a great way to get down to the core of some great people making some great music. See more at:


Kaleidoscope first connected with Timpanogos Storytelling in 2011 when they went out to scenic Ocracoke Island, North Carolina, to film What’s Your Story? A Donald Davis Workshop.  They filmed the workshop process, the amazing participants, and of course, the storyteller.  Along the way, they fell in love with storytelling, and have been a generous sponsor ever since.  They have given countless hours of filming, production, and support through the past several years, always going above and beyond what we could hope to ask for.


To Adam, Russ, and all our friends at Kaleidoscope Pictures, congratulations!
