Sunday, September 19th,, 2010 Blue Mother Tupelo & Various Artists Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion Throughout Historic Downtown Bristol Bristol TN/VA 24203 Ph: 423.573.4898 BMT's performance time: TBA Price: $10 - $35 Three Days of Legendary Performances by many of the best Roots Music artists that America has to offer. Confirmed for the 10th Annual Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion so far include: Del McCoury, Doyle Lawson, Ricky Skaggs, Michelle Malone, Blue Mother Tupelo and dozens more artists to be listed! In the summer of 1927, the Victor Talking Machine Company tapped producer Ralph Peer for an important task: find the next big thing in American music. To Peer, Bristol looked like the perfect place to scout—the city had a passenger rail line, a main street straddling the border of Virginia and Tennessee, and was central enough to North Carolina, Kentucky and West Virginia to get a musical sample of the mountains. Blue Mother Tupelo is ever-so aware of the rich musical history of this beautiful region in upper east Tennessee. Ricky quite possibly would never have picked up a guitar or sang a song if it weren't for his late uncle Bus, who picked, sang & rambled with the likes of Jimmie Rodgers, The Carter Family and some of the early recording artists out of Bristol. Bus played and sang the country hillbilly blues using a pocket knife to slide the guitar strings and he inspired Ricky's dad, other uncles and cousins to play music - and hence, Ricky was born into this family of music thanks to the roots from Bristol. In the same way Ralph Peer summoned artists to the streets in 1927, Bristol calls its musical children home to the Rhythm & Roots Reunion. Blue Mother Tupelo is truly honored to be included in the line up. The line-up of artists is the strongest ever and promises something for everyone, old and young alike.
