The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

Beginning as a jug band in mid-1960s California, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band fueled the country-rock music movement and later joined forces with bluegrass and country icons of the American South.

Band members Jeff Hanna, John McEuen, Jimmie Fadden, Jimmy Ibbotson, and Les Thompson achieved national commercial success with their 1970 album "Uncle Charlie & His Dog Teddy," which included "Mr. Bojangles," now a Grammy Hall of Fame single.

Recorded in 1971 and produced by William E. McEuen, the momentous "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" was the result of an unparalleled partnership in Nashville, Tennessee, between the Dirt Band and such artists as Roy Acuff, Maybelle Carter, Vassar Clements, Jimmy Martin, Earl Scruggs, Merle Travis, and Doc Watson. Treasured by rock and country music audiences and critics alike, this triple album was released in 1972 on United Artists Records and went multiplatinum.
