Enter our free giveaway and you may just be one of three lucky winners! The prize? A personalized "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" bundle from John McEuen himself. Each winner receives a signed "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" CD, John's "Made In Brooklyn" CD, a signed copy of John's new book "Will the Circle Be Unbroken: The Making of a Landmark Album", and a rare photo, signed (personalized).

About the book, John tells us, "The story, of a band’s young banjo picker who 'wanted to play with Earl Scruggs and Doc Watson someday', is told and shown here. How that five-year-old band (NGDB) took a risk on a ‘bluegrass’ recording, coming up to the high level of playing and singing needed, while still ‘young’."
