Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

Having recently celebrated their 50th Anniversary with a tour and PBS special, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is often cited as a catalyst for an entire movement in Country Rock and American Roots Music. While Mr. Bojangles may have been their biggest charting hit, it was their 1972 groundbreaking Will the Circle Be Unbroken album that brought generations together. Nitty Gritty Dirt Band performs August 31 at 8 p.m. at the Newberry Opera House. Tickets $70 – $90.
