Nitty Gritty Dirt Band


Nitty Gritty Dirt Band returns to the tent just in time for the 40th Anniversary of their seminal, generation-crossing album Will the Circle Be Unbroken being reissued on vinyl and CD. Making their 9th pilgrimage to the Big Top, Is it possible that the Dirt Band has played here more times than any other group besides our own Blue Canvas Orchestra? We’re checking! But the reason we keep bringing them back is because they are always the hit of the summer, dishing up their unique brand of Country Rock with hits like “Mr. Bojangles,” “Fishing in the Dark,” “Dance Little Jean,” and “American Dream.” And we must celebrate the anniversary of the ground-breaking album that inspired a generation of new bluegrass lovers in the 1970s when rock was the rage, country wasn’t cool, and bluegrass pickers were lost in the back of the record bins.
