Kentucky Shine to open for Nitty Gritty Dirt Band at concert following Air Show

Local band Kentucky Shine will open for the Grammy-winning Nitty Gritty Dirt Band at the “Owensboro Air Show After Party” on September 16. The concert will be held on the outdoor stage of the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum, and tickets include access to the museum’s lawn for viewing of the Air Show.

The Air Show will take place from 4-7 p.m. along the riverfront. Kentucky Shine takes the stage at 4, with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band starting at 5:30. General admission tickets cost $38 and are available here. (Preferred seating is sold out.)

Attendees are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket to enjoy the show. No coolers are allowed at the concert; a bar and concessions will be available the entire evening.

Kentucky Shine includes guitarist JB Miller, Steven Stewart on fiddle, bassist Ross Clark, and Jordan Riehm on banjo. They have released two albums, “Back in Again” and “Night Watch.” The band is true traditional bluegrass and has played at events including the ROMP Music Festival, First City Music Festival, and PorchFest.

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band remains one of the most accomplished bands in American roots music.

Following an extended 50th anniversary tour, the ensemble grew to a six-piece in 2018 for the first time since their early jug band days. The group now includes Jeff Hanna (acoustic guitar, electric guitar), Jimmie Fadden (drums, harmonica), Bob Carpenter (keyboards), Jim Photoglo (bass, acoustic guitar), Ross Holmes (fiddle, mandolin), and Jaime Hanna (electric and acoustic guitar). All six members also sing.

At the peak of their country career, the band toured Europe with Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. Their album Circle Volume II featured Johnny and June, as well as Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Levon Helm, John Hiatt, Bruce Hornsby, John Denver, Ricky Skaggs, New Grass Revival, and many other marquee names — including encore performances by Roy Acuff, Jimmy Martin, and Earl Scruggs. Released in 1989, the album won three Grammys and a CMA Award for Album of the Year.
