Through text and artifacts, multiple theater experiences, film and sound, and interactive displays, the Birthplace of Country Music Museum shares the story of the 1927 Bristol Sessions recordings, explores how evolving sound technology shaped their success, and highlights how this rich musical heritage lives on in today’s music.
The predecessor to bluegrass and country music, old-time music has been passed down for generations. However, the stories of women within the genre are not well-known. Many of these hidden heroines faced fierce opposition against playing music in public or at home, either by their churches or their husbands. This special exhibit gives voice to women who impacted the genre and spotlights the artists who are carrying on these traditions today.
