McEuen – with his banjo, guitar, fiddle, and mandolin – brings his unique cast of iconic Americana string wizards to share the music and memories of the landmark Will the Circle Be Unbroken platinum album (initiated by John), and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s incredible 50-year career. With narrative and music of early NGDB, founding member multi-instrumentalist John takes us on their incredible journey, interwoven with Nitty Gritty favorites, hot bluegrass, rarely heard NGDB early classics, and Carter Family music. The multi-media presentation features archival footage and some new classics from McEuen’s recent album on Chesky Records – Made in Brooklyn, which was Stereophile Magazine’s Record of the Month. John was recently inducted in to the American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame.
