Dirt Alert: Dirt Man, Tell Us About A Show!

This appeared in The Tennessean - March 18, 2000

From the boss, Tennessean Entertainment Editor Tim (Dirt Man) Ghianni, with another patented Dirt Alert:

Care to see and hear a banjo legend on the stage of the Ryman Auditorium again?

May 17 will be a historic occasion when Earl Scruggs returns to the former home of the Grand Ole Opry in a special benefit concert for Watkins Institute of Art and to launch a spectacular six-month art display.

Earl's accompaniment for the evening is Marty Stuart, a great entertainer and one of the guys who works hard to preserve the history and heritage of country music.

The 7 p.m. concert -- presented by the Ryman, Stuart and The Arts Company -- is called "The Great American Folk Boom."

Tix -- $27.50 and $22.50 -- will go on sale March 25 at Ticketmaster locations and the Ryman box office.
