John McEuen of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band has assembled a unique cast for a special night to share the music and memories of the landmark Will the Circle Be Unbroken platinum album and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s incredible career. His multi-media show with archival photographs, film, Circle session photos, narrative and music of early NGDB (including 8mm footage from 1967) takes us on their incredible journey - interwoven with Dirt Band favorites, hot bluegrass, rare early NGDB music.

A unique part of the show covers NGDB’s 1977 Russia trip, and what happened behind the Iron Curtain for the first American band to tour there. The cast, all stellar musicians in their own right, includes:
Les Thompson, an original NGDB founding member, on bass, vocals, and bouzouki; John Cable, who also toured Russia as a NGDB member, on guitar and vocals; and Matt Cartsonis, a 25 year music partner with John, on vocals, mandola, and guitar. Learn more about John here.

Tickets: $35 Adults and $17.50 Students
