The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band has left an indelible mark on American music since first coming together in 1966. They’ve won three Grammy Awards, placed an album and a single in the Grammy Hall of Fame, and charted country hits including “Voila (An American Dream),” “Modern Day Romance,” and “Stand a Little Rain.” The Band has also recorded the volumes of the multi-artist Will the Circle Be Unbroken albums that featured legends like Mother Maybelle Carter, Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, Emmylou Harris, Taj Mahal, John Prine, and Dwight Yoakam. There have been lineup changes over the years but the present one of founding members Jeff Hanna (guitar, vocals) and Jimmie Fadden (harmonica, vocals) plus Bob Carpenter (keyboards, vocals), Ross Holmes (fiddle, mandolin, vocals), Jim Photoglo (bass, vocals), and Hanna’s son Jaime Hanna (guitar, vocals) is as compelling as the group has ever been. Now the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band uses their eternal sense of roots music genius to explore the songs of Bob Dylan on the group’s new release Dirt Does Dylan. Released May 20th, 2022, the record is a ten-song journey through the work of arguably the most important singer-songwriter ever by one of the finest musical crews the USA has ever created.
