Dirt Band Plans Hall of Fame Donation

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band will donate memorabilia to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum during a Dec. 10 ceremony in downtown Nashville. Record producer Randy Scruggs will join the band in presenting items from the sessions of the album Will the Circle Be Unbroken, Vol. III. The series of Circle albums began with the first volume’s release in 1972. Founding band member Jimmie Fadden will donate the harmonicas he used on the latest album. Scruggs, who played guitar on the first volume, will provide the musical charts and session notes he created during the production of Vol. III. The ceremony will include live music and the first public screening of Farther Along, a 36-minute film documenting the Vol. III sessions. 11/25/02
