The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

When: Thu., Nov. 3 2011

A lot of dirt, and more than a few band members, have passed under the bridge since frontman Jeff Hanna and drummer Jimmie Fadden formed what would become one of the most influential bluegrass-tinged country-rock outfits ever. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, who first came to prominence with 1972's revered Will the Circle Be Unbroken collection, boasts a current lineup whose four members have cumulatively racked up more than a century with the band. In addition to keyboardist Bob Carpenter, the group also features hugely talented multi-instrumentalist John McEuen, whose beautiful banjo-driven instrumental "White Russia" will give you chills. Tickets are $33 to $43 for this 7 p.m. show at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com). — Bill Forman
