John McEuen - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
John McEuen
McEuen has assembled a unique cast for a special night to share the music and memories of the landmark Will the Circle Be Unbroken platinum album and his incredible 50-year career with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

The cast includes:
Les Thompson bass, vocals, bouzouki - an original NGDB founding member
John Cable guitar/vocals/mandolin - also toured Russia as NGDB member.
Matt Cartsonis vocals/mandola/guitar - 25- year music partner with John

When John initiated the Will the Circle Be Unbroken* album, the icons of Bluegrass, Country, and West coast country rock convened: Earl Scruggs, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, Jimmy Martin, Roy Acuff, Vassar Clements, and Maybelle Carter. Six hot August 1971 days produced the benchmark record relevant to this day (Amazon top-30 still!).

All join host John McEuen, with his banjo, guitar, fiddle and mandolin, as they share (in front of the screen) hits and stories behind the music, leading up to that magic time when three generations came together. The Library of Congress inducted the multi-platinum ‘Circle’ as one of the most important American recordings (it’s also in the Grammy Hall of Fame).

McEuen’s show with narrative and music of early NGDB takes us on his 50-year journey - interwoven with Dirt Band favorites, hot bluegrass, rare early NGDB music.

A unique part of the show covers the 1977 Russia trip, and what happened behind the Iron Curtain to the first American band to tour there .
The evening features classic NGDB favorites and music from McEuen’s new highly praised record - Made in Brooklyn - on Chesky Records. (Stereophile Magazine’s Record of the Month). The audience sees the entire span of John McEuen’s 50 years in music and is taken back through some of the best years of their lives.
