Meg Hutchinson is a nationally touring songwriter, poet and recording artist on Red House Records. She has released eight albums and won numerous songwriting awards in the US, Ireland and the UK, including recognition from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Billboard Song Contest and prestigious competitions at Merlefest, NewSong, Kerrville, Telluride and Rocky Mountain.
She has been described as delivering “Music as powerful as it is gentle.” Performer Magazine writes, “With a poet’s eye, Hutchinson captures so beautifully that human journey toward peace, toward forgiveness, toward acceptance.”
In recent years, as a result of the messages in her songwriting and her dedication to mental health literacy, Meg has increasingly been asked to be a keynote speaker at universities, conferences and teaching hospitals around the country. This year Meg joined the Active Minds Speakers Bureau – working to change the conversation about mental health at colleges nationwide.
Meg’s newest album “How Many Miles” is an intimate collection of live recordings spanning fifteen years of Hutchinson’s career. Together with audio engineer Keith Richardson, Meg chose thirty-two songs and three poems that tell the story of some of the most challenging and beautiful years of her life.
