The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Friends

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Friends.

I don't know how I missed this show just over a year ago. I'm guessing you all missed this show too because nobody mention this here.

Fifty years together.

As you know, John was a honorary member of this band since the early 70's.
I did not know they began in 1966.

PBS ran this special last March, 2016. I'm watching it tonight and wondering how I missed this show!

The guest include Jimmy Ibbotson, Jackson Brown, John Prine, Sam Bush, Vince Gill, Rodney Crowell and Jerry Douglas, Jerry Jeff Walker, Alison Krauss and Byron House.

Did you know that the Dirt Band was in Paint your Wagon?
They were the musicians that appeared several times in the mining camp.

They were a big part of my introduction to Bluegrass music.
My favorite album from the Dirt Band is Circle II .
