Sept. 10, 2013 — The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band will bring its iconic Grammy Hall of Fame style to Norfolk on Sept. 29 at 7:30 p.m. for a single night’s performance at Tidewater Community College’s Roper Performing Arts Center.

The profoundly influential Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is often cited as a catalyst for an entire movement in country rock and American roots music. With multi‐platinum and gold records, strings of top 10 hits such as “Fishin' In The Dark” and “Mr. Bojangles,” multiple Grammy, IBMA, CMA Awards and nominations, the band’s accolades continue to accumulate.

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter and John McEuen.  They are touring in support of their most recent release, the critically acclaimed album “Speed of Life.”
