The Grove Theater

The Grove Theater in Oak Ridge holds a rich history of memories for many in the East Tennessee area. Constructed during the Manhattan Project & recently rennovated, the theater is home to numerous Arts & Sciences organizations. It is currently owned and operated by High Places Community Church.


In a special appearance benefiting the ongoing maintenance of the Historic Grove Theater, music lovers will have the opportunity witness the artistry of John McCutcheon on Friday September 28, at 7:00pm.  The concert will take place in the large auditorium of the Historic Grove Theater located at 123 Randolph Road in Oak Ridge, TN.  Local up and coming Americana player, Eli Fox will open the show.  The Theater has an opportunity through the generous gift by a local anonymous donor to match dollar for dollar to build funding for the maintenance of this busy historic property.  Proceeds from this performance, after expenses, will be going to this effort.

“John McCutcheon is not only one of the best musicians in the USA, but also a great singer, songwriter, and song leader. And not just incidentally, he is committed to helping hard-working people everywhere to organize and push this world in a better direction.”

— Pete Seeger

“The most impressive instrumentalist I’ve ever heard.”

— Johnny Cash

“He has an uncanny ability to breathe new life into the familiar. His storytelling has the richness of fine literature.”

— Washington Post

“Calling John McCutcheon a ‘folksinger’ is like saying Deion Sanders is just a football player.”
