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

McEuen's Made in Brooklyn album on Chesky Records has just been nominated for Best Americana album by the Independent Music Association. Upon release it was declared 'Record of the Month' by the prestigious Stereophile Magazine!
