Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s John McEuen and The Circle Band at Fox Tucson Theatre
February 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$22 – $45
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, who was recently inducted in to the American Banjo Museum’s Hall of Fame.
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.
A unique part of the show covers NGDB’s 1977 Russia trip, and what happened behind the Iron Curtain to the first American band to tour there.
