John McEuen & The Circle Band

McEuen brings his banjo, guitar, fiddle, and mandolin to share his music and memories of his 55-year career in music. As featured in Ken Burns Country Music, John covers the story of the landmark *Will the Circle Be Unbroken platinum album (initiated by John), and his career with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - together with his unique cast of Americana string wizards.  Co-founding member and multi-instrumentalist John takes us on his incredible journey - interwoven with favorites from his radio-legacy, 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 Chesky Records album  – Made in Brooklyn. 

A unique part of the show covers the historic 1977 Russia trip (28 sold-out shows), and what happened to the first American band behind the Iron Curtain.
