Smart Bets: John McEuen

That the John McEuen and Sons show is billed as a Mother's Day concert sounds funny at first, but really, why not? Take mom out to see Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founding member/multi-instrumentalist McEuen — the guy has a lot of celebrate. He and sons Jonathan and Nathan (two of McEuen's seven kids) recently recorded The McEuen Sessions; this year also marks the 40th anniversary of the Nitty Griity Dirt Band's platinum-selling album, Will the Circle Be Unbroken. The McEuen men take the stage at Asheville Music Hall on Sunday, May 13. 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance or $17 at the door.
