American folk musician John McEuen, and a founding member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, will be performing at the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Saturday. For the 50th anniversary of their iconic record Will The Circle Be Unbroken, McEuen has put together The Circle Band for a multi-media concert. He also wrote a recently released book about the recording and will be signing copies after the concert.
Doors open at 6 p.m., and the concert begins at 7. Tickets are on sale here.
McEuen will bring his guitar, banjo, fiddle, and mandolin along with favorite NGDB songs and the stories behind them to the stage.
McEuen has made over 40 albums (7 solo) that have earned four platinum and five gold recognition awards, Grammy nominations, CMA and ACM awards, an Emmy nomination, IBMA record of the year award, and performed on another 25 albums as guest artist.
In September of 2017 John was inducted into the American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame.
Will the Circle Be Unbroken was “one of the most important recordings ever to come out of Nashville” according to Rolling Stone in 1972, and was inducted into the Library of Congress and the Grammy Hall of Fame as “one of America’s most important historic recordings.”
