The Grammy-winning Nitty Gritty Dirt Band -- affectionately known to their fans as NGDB -- first formed in 1966 with a lineup that included Jackson Browne. They went on to produce a legendary series of roots albums featuring their signature brand of country-rock-bluegrass, as well as the hit single "Mr. Bojangles." Their most recent album, 2009's Speed of Life, features 11 new originals. And now the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is back on the road with members Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter and John McEuen. Young bluegrass singer-guitarist-mandolinist Sierra Hull will perform an opening set. Learn More
