John McEuen, Grammy Winner and Co-Founder of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, to play The Linda

ALBANY – On February 27, 2022, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder and Grammy Winner, John McEuen, is slated to play The Linda WAMC’s Performing Arts Studio. The show will start at 7pm. McEuen has performed for 50 years worldwide with his banjo, fiddle, guitar, and mandolin. Often referred to as ‘the String Wizard’, he humorously weaves stories of his travels and family life (he has raised 7 kids), taking us on a multi-media show through where his musical path has taken him.

In 1966, John realized his teenage dream: to record with Earl Scruggs and Doc Watson.  When he initiated the 1972 classic  Will the Circle Be Unbroken album with his band (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Earl and Doc with Roy Acuff, Mother Maybelle Carter, Jimmy Martin, Merle Travis, Vassar Clements, Norman Blake gathered for a historic week in the studio! (inducted into the Library of Congress as ‘one of America’s most important recordings and the Grammy Hall of Fame).

He’s also won Best Bluegrass Album Grammy for his production of The Crow – Steve Martin). John in June of 2013 was honored with the Charlie Poole Lifetime Achievement Award in North Carolina. McEuen has earned Emmy nominations, Grammy Awards, CMA acclaim, The Western Heritage Award – many other accolades can be found on his website:
