Celebrating Si’s 80th

Chris Garlock | Published on 4/5/2024
John McCutcheon, who called Si Kahn “The best damn songwriter in the South…in his spare time!” back in 1975, is throwing an online birthday party for his longtime friend on April 14. There will be over a dozen artists participating, including Billy Bragg, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer, Tom Chapin, Jane Sapp, Holly Near, and Kathy Mattea, “who’ll be chiming in with tales about Si and singing some of his classic songs.” All proceeds from ticket sales go to support the Si Kahn Living Legacy, “a new non-profit project that will make available in perpetuity those of Si’s songs, stories, song cycles for children and adults, poems, unpublished books, poems, musicals, and other creative works that have never before been available to the public, and ultimately keep them alive and easily accessible after he’s gone,” says McCutcheon.
