Rosanne Cash, Tanya Tucker, JJ Grey & Mofro, Del McCoury Band, Jerry Douglas Band, The War And Treaty, and Asleep at the Wheel are among the acts performing at this year’s Annual Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion festival. The three-day event is set for Sept. 9-11 in Historic Downtown Bristol, Virginia-Tennessee.
More than 120 acts are scheduled to perform on 16 stages over the three days at the place where Tennessee and Virginia meet along several blocks of State Street in Bristol, which is designated by Congress as the birthplace of country music and considered hollowed ground by artists all over the world.
A few other Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion 2022 highlights include the return of Bristol Rhythm’s free Children’s Day activities for families on Sept.10 at Anderson Park, as well as “1968: A Folsom Redemption,” a special exhibit at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum featuring a collection of photographs by two journalists who were among the few to be present at Johnny Cash’s historic concerts at Folsom Prison.
“This year marks the 95th anniversary of the 1927 Bristol Sessions and Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion is a celebration of that great history,” explains Leah Ross, Executive Director of Advancement for Birthplace of Country Music, the parent nonprofit of the festival, the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, and WBCM Radio Bristol. “Our lineup is a reflection of the vast influence those recordings have made on the music of today and the rich music culture of southwest Virginia and northeast Tennessee.”
