“John McCauley is many things to the Newport Folk Festival, band leader, acrobat, adviser, troubadour, local, philosopher, imp, entertainer, gentleman, cohort, supporter, pirate, but above all else, a friend. He’s the winking contradiction, a kindhearted soul with biting wit; a man able to set the edge, make the turn, while somehow never touching the wheel.
While his tightrope performances and lyrical strafing from past visits have taken on a certain mythic status, one thing is clear when separating fact from fiction, John McCauley leaves it all, blood, sweat, and tears on the stage. It is for this very reason, it gives us great joy to announce John McCauley to the 2013 Line-up. Welcome home Capt’n Tipsy.”
