In 1966, at the peak of the British Invasion, John McEuen put together a band in California called the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Three years later, John and the band landed a role in the movie “Paint Your Wagon”, singing their tune “Buy For Me The Rain”. The following year, they blew up the charts (and bested several bands from England) with a chart-topping song called “Mr. Bojangles”. Fortunately for countless Dirt Band fans around the world, they were just getting started. Along the way, John put together a 3-disc project in 1971 called “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” that garnered a spot in the Grammy Hall of Fame and ended up in the Library of Congress designated as an “essential recording”. Oh, and he taught high school friend Steve Martin how to play the banjo. Now, nearly 60 years later, McEuen has cemented his legacy in the world of pop, country and Americana music with his seemingly limitless talent on a variety of instruments, earning him the well-deserved title “String Wizard”. He’s also working on a project of spoken word recordings, with a vibe that could be described and a cross between Orson Wells and Baxter Black. John played the Farm Concert 10 years ago, leaving a spellbound crowd begging for more. Well, this year, it’s time for more. Welcome back, friend.



Anyone who attended the Farm Concert in 2018 will remember the phenomenal show put on by Michael Martin Murphey. And many of those folks will recall Murph’s lead guitarist and harmony singer Carin Mari. Carin lit up the stage with her instrumental skills, crystal clear voice and youthful beauty. Featured several times in the show, we were flooded with requests afterward to bring her back for a full set of her own. So, we’ve done just that, giving Carin the opportunity to show our Farm Concert faithful why she has become one of the most sought-after artists in the Western / Americana music world. Singer, songwriter and damn sure cowboy girl, Carin will warm your heart and leave a smile on your face that could last for weeks. Don’t hesitate to see your doctor if you’re concerned about either one of those conditions.




Reckless Abandon played their first show in 1999 and quickly became a staple of the Rocky Mountain music scene, covering their favorite songs from their respective misspent teenage years. The band called it quits in 2019 when founding members Jim and Vickie Jones moved to Tennessee to live the quiet life as retirees. Fortunately, these hippies-at-heart hung on to their instruments and their tie dye shirts, all of which have miraculously stood the test of time. Kinda like the band.
