Nitty Gritty Dirt Band coming to The Paramount Theater

paramountThe Paramount Theater will welcome the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band on Sunday, October 2 at 8 p.m.

Celebrating their golden anniversary together, the iconic and profoundly influential  Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, often cited as a catalyst for an entire movement in country rock and American Roots music, continues to add to their legendary status. With multi-platinum and gold records, strings of top ten hits such as “Fishin’ In The Dark” and “Mr. Bojangles,” multiple Grammy, IBMA, CMA Awards and nominations, the band’s accolades continue to accumulate.

Their groundbreaking  Will The Circle Be Unbroken album has been inducted into the U.S. Library of Congress as well as the Grammy Hall of Fame.  NGDB’s recording of “Mr. Bojangles” was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2010.

In 2014 “Fishin’ In the Dark” was certified platinum for digital downloads by the RIAA. Today, NGDB (Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter, John McEuen) continue their non-stop touring in their 50th year together.

Tickets are on sale next week and can be purchased at The Paramount Theater’s Box Office, by phone at 434-979-1333, or online at
