John McEuen  
St. Louis, MO. Sheldon Concert Hall
In the National Historic Register, it is an honor to again play this classic room (4th time? 5th time?) where Einstein actually spoke so many years ago. The Sheldon is a jewel..... I will make sure we sparkle.

I know there will be some welcome surprises for this show, so stay tuned. It is of course with my guys.. but it is close to the Ozarks... :-)  a special guest night show up..

McEuen - with his banjo, guitar, fiddle, and mandolin - brings his unique cast of  Americana string wizards to share the music and memories of the landmark Will the Circle Be Unbroken platinum album (initiated by John) and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s incredible 50-year career – McEuen is one of the founding members. With narrative and music of early NGDB, John takes us on a musical 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 tied in to the music on stage.

Also, ‘new classics’ from his recent album on Chesky Records – Made in Brooklyn. - which was Stereophile Magazine's Record of the Month, will be performed.

The Independent Music Awards honored the ‘Brooklyn’ album with ‘Best Americana album’ last April at NYC’s Lincoln Center.
