  • Down Home in Bristol

    by Mary | Posted on September 12th, 2011

    Looking for something to do this weekend? Head on down to Bristol. This charming city is in two states – Virginia and Tennessee. You don’t want to miss the award-winning Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion.

    “It isn’t just a music festival. It’s an infectious, three-day music experience, bursting with creative passion, electricity, and soul–a celebration of Bristol’s heritage as the Birthplace of Country Music.” In 1927, on State Street, the first country music recordings were made with The Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, Ernest Stoneman and others. These recordings are known as the Bristol Sessions and are known as the “big bang” of country music. (http://www.bristolrhythm.com/)

    Every third weekend in September (this year it is September 16-18), State Street in historic Downtown Bristol, TN/VA is packed with music from Appalachia’s past, present and future. The Reunion offers 20 stages of live music that include five outdoor stages, a dance tent, 15 indoor venues and a children’s stage on Saturday from 9am-1pm for a fun event for families.

    The best part, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion is among the most affordable music festivals around!
