In two short weeks Historic Downtown Bristol, VA/TN will be filled with live music and beautiful people dancing in the streets! We’re kicking it all off with a very special Radio Bristol Presents: Farm & Fun Time live radio show featuring the musical talents of Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley and Woody Pines on Thursday, September 15 at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum.
The unique and collaborative effort between Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley is bound to be a revelation to traditional music fans. Ickes is a longtime, well-established instrumental giant, and Hensley is newly arrived in Music City, bursting with talent both as a vocalist and guitarist.
Nashville troubadour Woody Pines draws from the lost back alley anthems and scratchy old 78s of American roots music, whether country blues, jug band, hokum, or hillbilly. Woody’s intensely catchy rhythms, jumpy lyrics, and wildly delirious sense of fun is a treat for audiences of all ages.
Be part of the live studio audience for the program that got its roots in the 1940s from WCYB Radio’s Farm & Fun Time program. The show features the Appalachian Sustainable Development Farm Report, storytelling, and live music segways from Farm & Fun Time house band Bill & the Belles.
Can’t be part of the live audience? Tune in to Radio Bristol at 100.1 FM in the Bristol area, or listen online to WBCM-LP on this website or through the station’s mobile app.
Tickets to Radio Bristol Presents: Farm & Fun Time are $20. The show begins at 7:00 p.m. and the doors open at 6:30 p.m.
