Exactly two years after his sold-out performance for the grand opening of the Appalachian Theatre of the High Country (ATHC), folk musician John McEuen is returning to Boone on October 14 to perform alongside his “String Wizards” Matt Cartsonis, Les Thompson, John Cable, Jack Lawrence and T. Michael Coleman.

This live and in-person concert will be presented on ATHC’s Doc Watson Stage for Americana Music. John McEuen was a founding member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and a half-century later, McEuen is still actively crafting stories with his instruments and voice.

This special encore performance has been dubbed  “Grand Opening 2.0” and tickets are on sale at $35 each.
