"Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion is a celebration of the music that has been passed on to us from across the Appalachian region for generations," said Leah Ross, Executive Director of Advancement for the Birthplace of Country Music, the parent nonprofit of the festival, the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, and WBCM Radio Bristol.
"Our lineup exemplifies the vast influence of that great legacy on the music of today across a wide range of genres."
The latest round of artists announced today also includes the following:
Jamie McLean Band, Mo Lowda & The Humble, Andrew Scotchie & The River Rats, Ashley Heath & Her Heathens, West King String Band, The Judy Chops, Paleface, ETSU Bluegrass Pride Band, Nat Myers, The Dimestore Cowboys, Virginia Hollow, Florencia & The Feeling, Momma Molasses, Ron Short & The Possum Playboys, A Talent For Mischief and Basement Days
In addition to booking a stellar line-up, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion will observe the 95th anniversary of the 1927 Bristol Sessions - the event in history known as the "big bang" of country music and "the single most important event in the history of country music," according to Johnny Cash.
Weekend passes to Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion are on sale now for $100, with the price increasing May 1st. Artist schedules and single day passes will be released later this summer.
