Nitty Gritty Dirt Band to Perform with Soviet Rock Pioneer Pete Anderson

Pete AndersonThe Nitty Gritty Dirt Band will reunite with Soviet-era rock pioneer Pete Anderson on November 14th, when Pete makes a cameo performance appearance with them at the Emporia Granada Theater in Emporia, Kansas. During the height of the Cold War, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band became the first American band to tour the U.S.S.R., playing 28 sold-out shows. The story of this unusual East/West friendship shows how the power of music can change the world, a featured subject in the new documentary film "Rockin' The Kremlin," directed by four time Emmy Award director Jim Brown, due for May 2012 release.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
