About John McEuen
A founding member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (now in their 50th year!) John McEuen has continually performed since 1964—8,500 concerts and 300 television shows throughout more than 3 million miles—with the band and as a solo performer. Beyond performing, he has a rich history of creating, producing and preserving original and traditional folk and acoustic music, and taking it to new audiences.
He brings his guitar, banjo, fiddle, and mandolin, along with favorite Dirt Band songs and the stories behind them, to the stage in a manner that recently earned the honored Best in the West Award from the Folk Alliance Organization.
About The Brother Boys
The Brother Boys have reunited to bring their tongue and groove harmony and infectious rhythm to the stage once again. Ed Snodderly and Eugene Wolf began their brother-duet singing back in the 90s, releasing three critically acclaimed recordings; two for Sugar Hill: Plow, produced by Jerry Douglas and the self-produced Presley’s Grocery and one for England’s Zu-Zazz Records, Mulehead.
Years before the term Americana was born, they called their music “New Hillbilly,” which sounded good at the time; a way to distinguish the blending of country, bluegrass and rockabilly. The Brother Boys have a knack for this old sound. The emotions and country heartache tones match the landscape of East Tennessee, where they both grew up.
