Roots Music Legends Nitty Gritty Dirt Band to Play Infinity Hall
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
(NORFOLK, Conn.) – The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – one of the key groups to put the roots back into country, folk and roots-rock music in the 1960s and 1970s, paving the way for the full-fledged American roots or “Americana” revival of the 1990s and beyond – performs at Infinity Hall in Norfolk on Friday, September 7, 2012, at 8pm.
Perhaps best known for its hit version of Jerry Jeff Walker’s “Mr. Bojangles” and its critically influential 1972 triple album, Will the Circle Be Unbroken, which featured guest appearances by a host of roots-music legends, including such traditional country artists as Mother Maybelle Carter, Earl Scruggs, Roy Acuff, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, and Jimmy Martin, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band continues to reach new generations of listeners, with performances at rock festivals such as Bonnaroo and at high-profile events including Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble.
