The award-winning Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival celebrates 22 years in Historic Downtown Bristol, VA-TN, home to the 1927 Bristol Sessions, September 8-10, 2023!

Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion music festival is an electrifying music experience that features the very best roots music. Held annually in historic downtown Bristol TN/VA, the three-day music is amped to the beat of Appalachia’s past, present, and future. The festival digs down deep into the roots of the traditional Appalachian sound and lifts its branches to new heights. It all happens in the heart of the Birthplace of Country Music.

It’s an annual celebration of Bristol’s rich history as the place where the 1927 Bristol Sessions recordings created the “big bang” of country music; they were the recordings that brought early country music to the mainstream and were the first recordings of The Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers.

The influence of the 1927 Bristol Sessions can still be heard in the soundtrack of today. It’s the roots and far-reaching branches of those seminal recordings that fuels the lineup of each Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion.

Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion takes place in Historic Downtown Bristol, VA-TN on State Street and the surrounding area. Located on the Virginia and Tennessee border with 16 outdoor stages, numerous indoor venues and more than 100 acts of live music, Bristol Rhythm takes visitors on a journey through Appalachia’s musical past, present, and future.
