The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is an American country-folk-rock band founded in Long Beach, California in 1966. The band is often cited as instrumental to the progression of contemporary country and roots music.

The band’s successes include a cover version of Jerry Jeff Walker’s “Mr. Bojangles”. Albums include 1972’s Will the Circle Be Unbroken, featuring such traditional country artists Mother Maybelle Carter, Earl Scruggs, Roy Acuff, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, and Jimmy Martin. A follow-up album based on the same concept, Will the Circle Be Unbroken: Volume Two was released in 1989, was certified gold and won two Grammy Awards and had one of their albums named Album of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards.  In 2011 they released a 5 song E.P., “Live From The Big Top”.

This Week on TSR: The Long Beds

The music of the Long Beds has been called everything from country folk to roughneck folk and folk-twang to good old Americana. The band prefers the description given by an audience member after a benefit concert in Perry’s old high school gym: “You sound just like Gordon Lightfoot… only zippier!”

Perry’s songs are a direct reflection of his life growing up in smalltown Wisconsin. Ranging from straight-up twang to churchly harmonies and populated by characters drawn straight from rural and small-town America, they launch from places like the overpass outside Perry’s beloved hometown of New Auburn, Wisconsin (population currently 562), a gospel service in a granary, and the kitchen floor of a woman about to drop a world of hurt on her drunken husband. “I was raised by farmers and preachers and tough country women, and I suppose my songs reflect that,” says Perry. “Then again, certain wisdoms are available only from whistlers, frauds, and sinners, so I try to slide them a line or two as well.”

Band members include backup vocalists and musicians Billy Krause on guitar and banjo, Chuck Roll on bass guitar, and autoharp, and Christopher Ramey on guitar and keyboard, and special guest Andy Dee on guitar and dobro.

Beginning the week of Saturday April 20th, 2013 on Wisconsin Public Radio at 7PM CST and independent radio stations around the country.  Get the Complete Schedule Here here.

Known for his personal and intimate concerts, Brown’s most revealing recordings are live. In addition to his release of “One Night”, his “Live from the Big Top”, recorded at the Big Top Chautauqua brings a glimpse of the power of Brown’s live shows. In 2007, he was nominated for a Folk Alliance Award in the category of Contemporary Artist of the Year.

Brown’s songwriting has been lauded by many, and his songs have been performed by Willie Nelson, Jack Johnson, Carlos Santana, Michael Johnson, Ani DiFranco, Shawn Colvin, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Iris DeMent and Joan Baez. Baez’s album Dark Chords on a Big Guitar takes its name from a line in Brown’s song “Rexroth’s Daughter”; that song and “Sleeper” are covered on the album.

Trisis

Tirisis is a trio of sisters singing vintage harmonies inspired by ‘sister acts’ popular in the 1920s-1950s. Jessica (age 17), Jacqueline (age 13) and Jasmine (age 10) began listening to this type of music as very young children when their grandmother would sit them on the front porch and share her favorite Hit Parade records and V-discs. www.3sisters1voice.com[/one_half_last]

Barbara Jean

Barbara Jean grew up immersed in a world of music. Inheriting a musical legacy passed from grandmother to mother to daughter, she honed her early gift for the violin into a sharp eye for songwriting and a skilled hand as a multi-instrumentalist playing banjo, fiddle and viola. Calling Minnesota’s North Shore home for the better part of the last decade Barbara Jean crafted her debut record, The Great Escape. www.barbarajeanmusic.com[/one_half_last]
