If you don’t know John McEuen, watch his short documentary/bio with rare historic footage about his lifelong pursuits: John McEuen - a life in music: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=1655057105992 John McEuen, a founding member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (now in their 48th year!) and multiple Grammy winning artist, returns to Fogertyville with his banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle AND a special guest – previous NGDB member, John Cable. (Cable was in the band when they became the first American band to tour the Soviet Union in 1977). Playing a broad spectrum of roots, bluegrass and music now called Americana, multi-instrumentalist McEuen is an established name in acoustic music. His production of Steve Martin’s The Crow won the Best Bluegrass Album Grammy. McEuen recently was honored with the “Best in the West” award from the Folk Alliance and his concerts hit an average 130 cities yearly. McEuen says: "… my former Dirt Band-mate is one of the finest singers and guitarists I know. We’ll do our favorite NGDB music, and a lot of the eclectic roots of those branches..” Also joining this unusual night will be great Florida fiddler J. Robert. McEuen has made over 35 NGDB albums, including the landmark platinum-selling Will The Circle Be Unbroken, instigated by John.
