The ArtsCenter’s annual Songs from the Circle shows are a celebration of the best in classic American Folk and Bluegrass.
In spring 2012 local guitarist Danny Gotham organized a memorable benefit concert involving a live presentation of songs from the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s iconic album of 40 years prior, Will the Circle Be Unbroken. Danny and his colleagues have made this a tradition at The ArtsCenter, and Songs from the Circle returns for its 11th incarnation this year on June 14th. This event builds on the material of the album, paying homage in a more general sense to the classics, with an occasional original that stays in the spirit of classic country and bluegrass.
The Circle Crew for this event includes Jim Watson, Rebecca Newton, Danny Gotham, Hank and Pattie, Mike Babyak, Jan Johansson, FJ Ventre, Isabel Taylor, Larry Nixon, Stan Lewis, Scott McBride, Tommy Goldsmith, and Barry Gray.
