John McEuen

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder John McEuen makes his debut at the Kate Tiedemann and Ellen Cotton Cabaret Theatre at Ruth Eckerd Hall! Joining him is local-favorite, Best of the Bay guitarist Shaun Hopper. McEuen brings banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle AND a special guest – previous NGDB member, John Cable. Multi-instrumentalist McEuen has ventured into varied musical genres, and to different formats including television special production, film scoring, and unusual award winning albums. Playing a broad spectrum of roots, bluegrass and music now called Americana has made John McEuen an established name in acoustic music. His production of Steve Martin’s The Crow won the Best Bluegrass Album Grammy.
