John McEuen and his unique cast of iconic Americana string wizards share the music and memories of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s incredible 50-year career and the landmark Will the Circle Be Unbroken platinum album, initiated by John. With narrative and music of early NGDB, founding member John 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 new album on Chesky Records – Made in Brooklyn. – which was Stereophile Magazine’s Record of the Month. The String Wizards features John McEuen (banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, vocals), Les Thompson (also an original member of NGDB) bass/vocals, Matt Cartsonis (guitar/mandola /vocals), and John Cable (a previous NGDB member) (guitar/vocals).
Andy Goessling, multi-instrumentalist from the hot band Railroad Earth, will be sitting in with John and his string wizards – Andy was featured on John’s latest highly-acclaimed Made in Brooklyn album (Stereophile Magazine’s Record of the Month)
