    ARENA THEATRE

    STATEMENT FROM THE TOUR:
    “Regrettably the Winger / Lita Ford show for this Friday night has been cancelled. Because of the holiday weekend and a show in the midst of this, our previous travel arrangements were cancelled and all rescheduled travels logistically wouldn’t get us there in time to properly set up a great show for the fans. Both bands were looking forward to being here. Something were hoping to revisit at a later time.”

With a refreshed lineup and newfound energy, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band remains one of the most accomplished bands in American roots music.

Following an extended 50th anniversary tour, the ensemble grew to a six-piece in 2018 for the first time since their early jug band days. The group now includes Jeff Hanna (acoustic guitar, electric guitar), Jimmie Fadden (drums, harmonica), Bob Carpenter (keyboards), Jim Photoglo (bass, acoustic guitar), Ross Holmes (fiddle, mandolin), and Jaime Hanna (electric and acoustic guitar). All six members also sing, and when their voices merge, the harmonies add a powerful new component for the legendary band. And with the father-son pairing of Jeff and Jaime Hanna, the band carries on a country music tradition of blood harmony.

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band played their first gig in 1966 in Southern California as a jug band and by 1969 had become a cornerstone of the burgeoning country-rock community. Their career breakthrough came in 1970 with the release of the record Uncle Charlie & His Dog Teddy and the single “Mr. Bojangles,” a folksy Top 10 pop hit that remains a staple of their live show.

During a tour stop in Nashville around that time, Earl Scruggs and his family came backstage to say hello. That introduction led to a friendship and some of the connections the band needed to record the acclaimed three-disc album “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.” A number of country, folk, and bluegrass legends. Heroes like Roy Acuff, Mother Maybelle Carter, Jimmy Martin, Merle Travis, and Doc Watson joined the scruffy, young band for a project that is considered a landmark recording in American music. Both “Mr. Bojangles” and “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” were inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
