Ponte Vedra Beach, FL–— The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall has announced two new shows featuring the unique sounds and musical blends of John McCutcheon on December 14, and folk singer-songwriter John Wesley Harding on January 5, 2014.


From such inauspicious beginnings, John McCutcheon has emerged as one of our most respected and loved folksingers. As an JohnMcCutcheon1instrumentalist, 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 thirty recordings have garnered every imaginable honor including seven Grammy nominations. He has produced over twenty albums of other artists, from traditional fiddlers to contemporary singer-songwriters to educational and documentary works. His books and instructional materials have introduced budding players to the joys of their own musicality. And his commitment to grassroots political organizations has put him on the front lines of many of the issues important to communities and workers.


Wesley Stace has released 17 albums under the name John Wesley Harding. His new album, Self-Titled, for which he has returned to his given name, was released by Yep Roc, September 17. He has also published three novels. Since his much-lauded debut Here Comes The Groom on Sire Records in 1990 (declared “the first great rock record of the `90s” by Robert Hilburn in the LA Times), Harding has been JohnWesleyHardingsNewDealsingle-minded in his pursuit of pop perfect songcraft. He’s explored many of the darker corners of contemporary music, from traditional folk to garage rock, even recording an a capella record just for good measure. His songs have been featured in movies such as High Fidelity, and he has recorded duets with Bruce Springsteen, Lou Reed and Josh Ritter among others.



Tickets for these two seated shows will go on sale this Friday, September 27 at 10AM. Tickets will be available for purchase at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall and St. Augustine Amphitheatre box offices, findmytix.com, and all Ticketmaster outlets.
