Roots at the Riverwalk Center

By Summit Voice

SUMMIT COUNTY — Breckenridge is going rootsy for its traditional free Independence Day concert at the Riverwalk Center. The town announced this week that the show will feature The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, considered to be a profoundly influential group that helped catalyzed the country rock and American roots music movement.

The band has a string of multi-platinum and gold records, as well as ten hits like Fishin’ In The Dark and Mr. Bojangles.

Their groundbreaking “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” album has been inducted into the U.S. Library of Congress as well as the Grammy Hall of Fame. NGDB’s recording of “Mr. Bojangles” was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2010.

Other Independence Day activities include a 10K trail run, the Arts District Celebration, the Firecracker 50 bike race leading the Fourth of July Parade on historic Main Street, kids’ activities, and the evening National Repertory Orchestra patriotic concert at the Riverwalk Center.
