Another Rhythm & Roots record?

September 14th, 2011 4:18 am by Staff Report



According to a Bristol Herald Courier report strong advance ticket sales and a fall-like weather forecast could add up to a record-shattering turnout for this weekend’s Rhythm & Roots Reunion.

The 11th annual downtown music festival kicks off its second decade Friday afternoon and continues with performances Saturday, Saturday night and Sunday. The event celebrates Bristol’s music heritage, offering nationally and regionally known performers of country, bluegrass, blues, Americana, gospel and other forms of roots music. Last year’s three-day event set an attendance record by attracting more than 40,000 people.

“Our advance ticket sales have been great and our online sales have been phenomenal,” festival Executive Director Leah Ross said. “This is the first year we’ve used progressive pricing and the response has been awesome.”

Adult single-day tickets are available at the gate, but advance three-day tickets remain available through Thursday for $50. Prices were even lower throughout much of the year to encourage fans to buy tickets early, Ross said.
