The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band brings their 50th Anniversary Tour to Central Virginia 10/02/16
The Sunday night air was alive with anticipation. The promise of autumn’s cool weather and an evening of splendid music signaled that the dog days of summer were a thing of the past. And who better to celebrate with than old friends Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, John McEuen, and Bob Carpenter? The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band took the packed house at Charlottesville’s Paramount Theater on a musical joyride, and in the process dispelled the myth that familiarity breeds contempt. In fact, it seemed to breed a deep sense of community, the sort that our current political season could never achieve.
