John McEuen brings with him 45+ years of worldwide performing with his banjo, fiddle, guitar, and mandolin. Often referred to as the String Wizard, he weaves stories of his travels and family life (he has raised 7 kids), taking us through where his musical path has taken him.A founding member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in 1966, John instigated the 1972 classic Will the Circle Be Unbroken album, (inducted in to the Library of Congress as one of Americas most important recordings). He has earned Emmy nominations, Grammy Awards, CMA acclaim, The Western Heritage Award, and many other accolades can be found on his website: www.johnmceuen.com.Proud to be an integral part of the first American band to go to Russia (in 1977!), Johns love of performing is evident when during his shows he takes us behind the curtain of the music world that so many of us know of only as listeners, and shows us how we have all been a part of it, more than we may know.
