John McEuen, recently inducted in to the American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame, brings his unique cast of 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, John (a founding member) takes us on their incredible journey – interwoven with Nitty Gritty favorites, hot bluegrass, rarely heard NGDB early classics, Carter Family music, all in a multi-media presentation that features archival footage – and some new classics from his recent album on Chesky Records – Made in Brooklyn.

Get ready for hits such as “Mr. Bojangles,” “Dance Little Jean,” “Long Hard Road.” “House at Pooh Corner,” and of course “Will the Circle be Unbroken.”

John McEuen banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, vocals
