John Michael Hurt – began playing music in the 60s at the age of twelve. From 1966 to 1976 he traveled all over the Eastern U.S. as a working musician, before frustration with the late seventies music scene drove him to destroy all his old material and go to work building recording studio equipment. Later he became a teacher. Hurt continued writing new works and performing, sometimes with friends. After 9/11 something made him want to write and perform more. Many friends urged him to do so. In 2006, he released an album called Borrowed Time, available on iTunes. He has another album on the way.
On Saturday, July 9, John Michael will join 6 spoken word artists and the Linda Heck Chamber Trio for a very special and unprecedented performance at the historic Sewanee Union Theater. Don't miss this! You can buy tickets online now, or cash at the door.
