JOHN McEUEN....returns with friends Matt Cartsonis (the great singer and mandola/guitar player) and hot fiddler Craig Eastman for a show of familiar and new music. They will be featured at the Alaska State Fair this August so if you don't catch them here you will have to go to north to Alaska!   Big Star  Everywhere.  Will sell out.  Even on a Monday.

This is the 40th year of the release of the “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” album, and many songs from that will be featured this night. It was just rereleased on vinyl LP by Capitol/EMI and getting well deserved new attention. (The album was recently put in the Library of Congress as 'one of the most important American recordings).

Bluegrass, blues, traditional, folk, and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band songs will fill the evening with new stories from the travels of this iconic performer - recently recognized by the Folk Alliance as 'The Best in the West" performer.

McEuen is also set to receive the Charlie Poole Lifetime Achievement Award at that North Carolina festival this June.
