The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band Turns in a Stunning Performance
The last day of April was a beautiful one. I made the thirty-minute drive from my home in Midlothian, Virginia to the quiet town of Hopewell, nestled along the banks of the Appomattox River. The sun was moving west, retreating towards the horizon, the clear blue sky taking on the colors that herald the close of the day. As the light began to fade a faint warm breeze seemed to carry the promise of a special night.
