John McEuen, the star of almost everything including The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band teams up with virtuouso, Craig Eastman and Matt Cartsonis for a night of musical poetry. John M.C.’s multiple episodes of The History Of Country Music for Ken Burns PBS special starting September 15. Ken Burns! Can it get any better? And on this evening, The Coffee Gallery Backstage has captured John McEuen for one exclusive show. John is now part of history and you can experience him close enough to touch. A few lucky fans caN rest their hands on his forearm after the show. Florentine Films (Ken Burns) presents The History of Country Music… John McEuen leading the pack. The Ken Burns company, Florentine Films, is releasing The History of Country Music to PBS - Broadcast starts Sept. 15, 2019! This Documentary is an 8-part (2 hours each) mini-series featuring John McEuen in several episodes in the telling of this history, of which he has been a part. In addition, episode 6, titled Will the Circle Be Unbroken, will cover extensively the historic multi-platinum Will the Circle Be Unbroken album which John initiated with Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in 1972. (Circle is in the Library of Congress and the Grammy Hall of Fame!) John is the main on screen 'talking head' telling that wonderful story, which closes that segment. The series is also being 'double bumped’ (meaning it reruns immediately after initial broadcast; series will also rerun this winter). The mini-series uses two cuts from the album as background, lead-in music. This is like a two hour commercial for the classic album. Florentine Films believes it will be their most watched program to date.
