John McEuen
A founding member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (now in their 44th year) John McEuen now joins forces with a pair of super-talented, musical chips off the ol’ block: sons, Jonathan and Nathan, inThe McEuen Sessions – For All the Goodan evolution of McEuen’s vision as his boys step forward to blend their own musical influences with those of their legendary dad. It’s a colaboration of familial talent, literally a lifetime in the making. According to McEuen, “The album is a culmination of my sons’ influences that come from everything from Phish to Johnny Cash to the Beatles to The Band. Then, throw into the mix their having had a dad who’s been in a band for 45 years, and what that meant growing up,” says John. Though touring often separated the McEuens, it also provided adventures, camaraderie – and hands-on musical training.
John estimates he’s taken his sons to at least 300 cities over the years, with them joining in onstage. “I said to Nathan at 17, ‘sorry you’ve had so many birthdays on the road,” the elder McEuen recalled. “He said, ‘Dad, most of my friends haven’t left the state, and I’ve already been to 25 state capitals. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.” Once you experience the musical richness and instrumental virtuosity of For All The Good, delivered by this foremost of figures in American contemporary music and his progeny, we figure you won’t want to trade it for anything either.

Quotes


“In a way, the songs on For All the Good are an extension of the traditional and progressive string music blend pioneered by the Dirt Band, but with a lighter, more folkish feel.”
Walter Tunis — The Musical Box
