Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is set to headline Merlefest 2013 on Saturday, April 27. A celebration of “traditional plus” music, the festival draws over 80,000 attendees annually from all over the world, hosting over 90 artists during the four-day event. They’ll share the stage with Sam Bush and Jerry Douglas, as they perform “Mr. Bojangles” and Top Ten hits such as “Fishin’ In The Dark.”

Last week, the band issued a deluxe 40th anniversary re-mastered triple vinyl and HDTracks edition of Will The Circle Be Unbroken. The Library of Congress-honored album features expanded artwork and new liner notes by John McEuen.
