One Night Only

John McEuen has assembled a unique cast for a special night at the Victoria Theatre 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. A multimedia 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, rarely heard early NGDB, and Carter Family 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.

When the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band recorded the landmark 1972 release, Will the Circle Be Unbroken, initiated by founding member John McEuen, the icons of bluegrass, country, and west coast country rock convened: Roy Acuff, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, Jimmy Martin, Earl Scruggs, Vassar Clements, and Maybelle Carter. Six hot August 1971 days produced the benchmark record that is relevant to this day (still an Amazon top-20 seller!).  The Library of Congress inducted the multi-platinum Circle as one of the most important American recordings. Circle is also in the Grammy Hall of Fame.

The evening’s journey leads to McEuen’s new highly praised record — Made in Brooklyn — on Chesky Records. Closing the evening with encores of music from the new album, the audience will have seen the entire span of John McEuen’s 50 years in music and been taken back through some of the best years of their lives.
