April 25, 2024

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band “ALL THE GOOD TIMES: The Farewell Tour”

Thursday, April 25, 2024 at the Strand Theatre in Shreveport

With their recent announcement of ALL THE GOOD TIMES: The Farewell Tour, GRAMMY® Award winners Nitty Gritty Dirt Band made it clear that their time spent on long bus rides and multi-city tours is finally winding down, but they also let fans know that this career-spanning celebration isn’t ending anytime soon. The band announced its tour dates including stop at the Strand Theatre in Shreveport, Louisiana on Thursday, April 25, 2024 at 7 pm

“Playing our music for Dirt Band fans all over the world has been an incredible experience for us. The most important part of that has been the connection to our audience—that beautiful communal give and take is like nothing else,” said the band in a statement announcing their retirement from the road. “That's the very spirit we'll be celebrating as we head into our farewell tour.”

About Nitty Gritty Dirt Band: With one of the most compelling lineups in the group’s storied history, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, featuring founding members Jeff Hanna (lead vocals, guitar) and Jimmie Fadden (drums, harmonica, vocals); longtime bandmate Bob Carpenter (keys, vocals)—a member since 1980; along with Jim Photoglo (bass, vocals); Jaime Hanna (guitar, vocals); and Ross Holmes (fiddle, mandolin, vocals); remains one of the most accomplished bands in American roots music. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band played their first gig in 1966 in Southern California as a jug band and by 1969 had become a cornerstone of the burgeoning country-rock community. Their career breakthrough came in 1970 with the release of the record Uncle Charlie & His Dog Teddy and the single “Mr. Bojangles,” a folksy Top 10 pop hit that brought roots music to the national forefront. In 1972, they released the first of three groundbreaking Will The Circle Be Unbroken records, collaborating with many of the best bluegrass, country, and folk artists in the world. The band also has enjoyed vast success on the U.S. Country charts with hits like "Fishin' In The Dark," "Modern Day Romance," and "Long Hard Road." The Dirt Band are GRAMMY, CMA, and IBMA Award winners, and their Nitty Gritty Dirt Band & Friends - Fifty Years, Circlin' Back! for PBS was an Emmy Award-winning television special. The Dirt Band’s latest album, Dirt Does Dylan—released in 2022—has received widespread critical acclaim. More at www.nittygritty.com/history

In January of 2024, the band announced ALL THE GOOD TIMES: The Farewell Tour, a celebratory victory lap of shows to honor the band’s nearly 60 years of music-making.
