Legendary Nitty Gritty Dirt Band to Perform at the Owensboro KY Air Show
There are multiple reasons to enjoy having the Bluegrass Hall of Fame and Museum in your town. For one, it's a hall of fame, and I love them. I might take a tour of the DUCT TAPE hall of fame if one existed. That's how much of a fan I am of those establishments.
But with the Bluegrass Hall of Fame, you get the opportunity to see some extraordinary musicians from time to time. And this September, THAT particular opportunity will once present itself. Only it's not JUST the museum and hall of fame involved in this performance. This concert will be a part of the Owensboro Air Show.
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band Playing the Owensboro Air Show After Party
The legendary, iconic (I'm out of words) Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is coming to Owensboro to give us 50-plus years of amazing music on the heels of that exciting event.
And, by "on the heels", I mean that NGDB will headline the Owensboro Air Show After Party September 16th at the Bluegrass Hall of Fame and Museum's outdoor stage.
There will be no coolers allowed at the concert, but a bar and concessions will be available. A special Facebook page has been created to keep those who are interested in attending up to date on any information regarding the concert.
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band -- Some History
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is closing in on its 60th anniversary, and there's still an original member in the lineup. That's Jeff Hanna who was a part of the original outfit when it formed in 1965. Back then, it was called the Illegitimate Jug Band. By early 1966, rock legend Jackson Browne joined the group, along with Jimmie Fadden. Browne left soon after while Fadden remains a band member to this day.
You'll see Hanna, Fadden, and the rest of the current members on September 16th and enjoy an amazing evening of, well, music history.
I've never heard that iconic standard live. I hope that changes this September.
