Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion and Capo's Music Store are both known for fostering young talent to carry on the tradition of our region's rich music heritage. This year the two join forces to produce the festival's inaugural Youth Music Competition. The competition is open to youth ages 5-18 playing upright bass, banjo, fiddle/violin, guitar, mandolin or ukulele.
The preliminary competition will be held Saturday, September 7, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. in the Harrison Jones Auditorium at Virginia Intermont College. The final competition will be held during Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion Saturday, September 21. Brand new instruments will be awarded for first prize winners, and second and third placers will receive gift certificates to Capo's Music Store. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged since each category is limited to 25 participants. The registration fee is $10.
